OAKPORT TOWNSHIP, Minn. — Quentin Goehring died trying to save his farm from the rising Red River. Dozens of volunteers weren't about to let his work go for nothing.
Although many never knew the 73-year-old Minnesota farmer, they trudged through calf-deep mud on Thursday, shoveling sand as skid-steer loaders zipped around the property placing sandbags to finish the protective wall Goehring was working on when he collapsed.
"We wanted to help out where they really needed help," said Zane Miller, a 16-year-old high school student who filled sandbags with his father, Mike. "And we heard they needed help here."

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid. - M. Aurelius
