Funerals begin for U.S. mudslide victims

The funeral of Linda McPherson was one of the first three for victims of the mudslide that swamped the town of Oso in Washington state. She's one of 30 people so far confirmed dead in the disaster that hit on March 22. Her husband survived. The couple's son paid tribute. (SOUNDBITE)(English) SON OF LINDA MCPHERSON (NAME NOT GIVEN), SAYING: "Growing up I can't remember a single time where she ever lost her temper. There were times when she was disappointed with our behaviour and there were times she would make that known with a wooden spoon which was always deserved. But in the 40 years I've been alive I've never seen my parents fight which I thought that was normal growing up. Now as an adult, I know how unusual and special that was." McPherson's funeral on Saturday was due to be followed by another four on Sunday. Search teams are still trying to find 13 people still unaccounted for
