Dennis with Adela and Ed Sperber

It's a proud event, the confirmation of a Family Member

Adela is Dennis's fathers, Sister,  Ed Sperber is her husband.  It is the responsibility of "sponsors" to see that youth in Evangelical Lutheran Churches are raised in a Christian Life.  The Role is a token of honor and a mark of passage in a youth's life.  It is largely symbolic in practice but charged with real responsibility. 

The church expects the godparents to step in if doctrine is not followed.  I know of NO cases where this has happened

Ed and Adela were fine members of the family.  I stayed with them on occasion as I grew through the teen years.  I remember staying with them for a day or two, playing with my Knuth cousins.  I tired to catch a wild field mouse and still remember its bite 60 years later
