    Hi Rich, Barb and Karen, So sorry you had to lose your Dad. I think the last time I saw your parents was at my brother Bill and Shelly (Deutschman's) wedding. I think it will be 23 years in April. Your Mom and Dad always seemed to enjoy themselves in good old LC. I am sure all the good memories you have of your Dad will help you through this difficult time. Take care and Keep the Faith!

    Hi Rich, I saw your dad's obit in the Mankato Free Press and wanted you to know I'm thinking about you all during this difficult time. When my dad died we knew he was at peace, but at the same time it was hard to say good-bye to a person who had been part of my life for so many years. When my husband died just two years ago. . .that was an entirely different experience than when my dad died, but I still had to think about his being at peace. I guess that is what faith is all about. My family continues to grow as I await another granddaughter (have 3 granddaughters and 3 grandsons) to be born in early January. My son and his wife live in Ipswich, MA, so I will be making a trip east this winter. Patty Peterson is coming to MN next week from WY, and she and Trudie Wolf, Pat Kelly, Andie Z., Diane Quinn and I are gathering at the Little Dandy for supper Wednesday and then to Diane's for a time of memories. What fun we will have. I'm sure your name will come up in the conversation as will many of the "boys" in our class. Bet your ears will be ringing! Take care Rich. I hope you are having a good life. Sincerely, Carol (Berger) Hanson
