An overflow crowd of 530 people gathered Wednesday at the Granite Falls Lutheran Church to pay their respects to DFL State Sen. Gary Kubly, who died Friday at age 68.

A 16-year veteran of the Legislature and ordained Lutheran minister, Kubly was celebrated as a "bridge crosser" who brought people of differing views together and as someone who lived his Christian beliefs as a citizen and legislator.
