The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Please keep honking and waving


December 10, 2015

To The Eagle:

The huge turnout at the celebration of Rod Prestegard’s life last Saturday reminded me of the time after I bought his old brown Chevrolet pick-up. From that time until recently, complete strangers would often honk and wave at me (or more likely the truck). It seems that although Rod was a couple of years older than me, in an old baseball cap, people who cared so much for Rod assumed I was Rod.

I hope those who now realize that it’s not Rod driving that old truck, will continue to honk and wave, not only because I’ve gotten quite used to waving back, but also because it can be our way of honoring a great man who was a great part of life in Wahkiakum.
