Services were held for Seve Ballesteros this morning in his native Spain.
Ryder Cup captains Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie, Sam Torrance and Jose Maria Olazabal marched together in silence as part of the procession from Ballesteros' family home to the church of San Pedro de Pedrena.While funerals are by definition a bit of a downer, it's always best when they are also a celebration of life- and it sounds like that's what this was for Seve. His ashes will be buried under a magnolia tree on the family's property.

Keeping in mind the various faiths/non-faith of various oobers, I thank our kind and loving God that he gave us Severiano Ballesteros for as long as we had him. @Kickntrue was exactly right at the end of his piece; Gamesmanship in the Ryder Cup aside, when I think about his recovery / escape artistry from seemingly impossible places, I will always have a smile on my face.
