  10. Oh how Ginny will always remain loved and special in my heart!
    When I was a teenager and into my early 20’s (over 30 years ago) I used to work at the A&W in Baldwin. Ginny and Dick would come in after church on Sunday’s, amongst other times, and I would love when they sat in my section. I was always greeted with huge hugs from them!
    At that time tips were shared amongst the servers. Ginny would hand me the tip directly and tell me it’s just for you. She meant it too!
    At one time she actually reached in and put the dollar bills in my bra. We laughed together and I remember her laughter being so contagious!
    Thank you Ginny for being a part of my fabric! God’s Peace and Prayers!

  18. Joan and family, Kevin and I send our deepest sympathy with the loss of Phil. Gone to soon. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  19. Joan, words can not tell of the sadness we have for the loss of such a good man. Our hearts are breaking for you and your whole family, and the void there will be without him next to you. I am so thankful for that wonderful visit we had with Phil while he was on a stay over in Bismarck. How his eyes light up when we talked of grandkids and his laughter will stay in my memory forever. Please know that we are holding all of you in prayer and sending you our love. I pray that memories will bring comfort and God, family and friends will hold you in their arms at this sad time.

  20. Chuck was a very generous man. Not only with his caring personality but also his real concern. In 1988 when I was laid off, he sent me a check for $500 to help with my family needs. He wrote on the bottom of the check “Please accept this money to help with your family needs for food, expenses, etc. Don’t send it back as I won’t accept it. When you get back to work, find another deserving person and pass it on” It brought me to tears and I will never forget it. A year later I found another deserving person…and passed it on.
    He and I were friends ever since we met in the army in 1963.
    May God bless this good man.

  21. Dear Joan and family,
    I’m so very sorry about the passing of Phil, what a shock No words
    Can comfort you at this time but just remember that friends and family are here to help you through this very painful time.
    With much love.

  22. I’m so sorry to read of Bob’s passing. While working at CCH, he was always a joy…. always made me smile! Rest In Peace Bob!
    Fond Memories!
    Tanya Deyo

  23. Joan,
    I am so shocked and saddened to read of Phil’s passing on Facebook. I appreciated him as a member of our church and his work in the church, as my auto mechanic, as a good friend, and as a community businessman. Words fail us at a time like this; however, may God’s Spirit surround you with His supporting arms; may He comfort you each and every day during which your hearts ache; and may He give you the assurance of eternal life for Phil. Marion and I send our love, and you and your family will be in our prayers. Pastor Leon

  24. Joan and Family,
    We were customers in Phil’s new business venture. We were deeply saddened by the hearing of his passing. You have are deepest sympathy and condolences. In our short time knowing each other, we became fond of him, he always had a smile on his face with his distinctive laugh.
    Wishing you peace,
    Andy, Ryan, and Kevin – Certified Transmission

  25. Joan and family,

    Dave and I are so saddened to hear of Phil’s passing. Our hearts ache for you and the kids to have to experience this terrible loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We pray that you find comfort and peace in God’s love and support of family and friends.

  26. My sincere condolences to Hank’s family and friends.The death of a loved one is one of the most devastating experiences a human can face. The words quoted at Isaiah 25:8 have comforted me greatly. It reads :”He(God) will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” May you find hope and comfort in knowing that, soon, by means of God’s Kingdom, no one will ever fall prey of this merciless ‘enemy’(1 Corinthians 15:26).

  27. Hank and Donna have been our neighbors for many years. He was kind and always kept an eye on our house, more than once calling us to let us know we left the garage door open when we headed out of town for the weekend. We watched over the years when you had to give up riding your cycle and eventually selling it and your truck. It was hard to watch your disease take away your ability to get around and take the things you loved. In recent years you put smiles on our faces watching you sit in your wheelchair in the sun watching neighbors go by waving to greet them and eventually falling to sleep in the warm sun. Rest in peace Hank. You will be missed by many.
    .

  28. As a high school classmate, I remember Mike always living life to the to the fullest. Wishing Mike’s family God’s peace and comfort during this difficult time.

  29. I remember the Manz Elementary school crowd. Some of the first ones to welcome me from Mississippi to wisconsin. Mike always had a way of making everyone feel comfortable. Remembering Mike, John, Julie and family in my prayers and thoughts. May your memories bring you comfort.

  30. Hank has been a great friend of mine for over forty years, we had many a good time. We will all surely miss him! I’m sure he’s playing cribbage with Benny. Miss you Hank Rest In Peace

  31. Sandy, I am so glad that you and your family crossed paths with me and mine, not once, but twice. Having you as neighbors in Illinois and again in Wisconsin was a wonderful stroke of …God’s plan.

    I have so many vivid memories of Mike. I will always cherish the time he and I spent together, and the time we spent together as families. In my mind’s eye, I see Mike driving his boat down the St. Croix, smiling and loving his amazing life…Of course I am sitting nearby with a red solo cup in hand ;).

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love,

    Bob

  32. Mike, if it wasn’t for you, I would not know how to drive a stick shift. Without your help several times, Paul and I wouldn’t have electricity on our garage. You had the biggest heart and I will miss you. So until we meet again, May God carry you home. Heaven has gained another angel.

  33. Judy,
    We were so sad to hear of John’s passing. We have so many fond memories of our lives at Dana Hall when we were both there. There are no real words to comfort you at this time, but the many warm and wonderful memories of your life together are a blessing now. Please accept the sincere thoughts and prayers we are sending your way today.
    Most sincerely,
    Dottie & Bill

  34. Ed, so sorry to hear of Rosemary’s death. I have such fond memories of growing up with her, going to the farm etc. Many prayers for you and your family. May she rest in the peace of God. Nancy

  35. Denny was my co-worker for the city of Hudson and my neighbor. Denny loved mowing his lawn and keeping the walk and driveway clean of snow. I loved when He came over and did my driveway too. He never spoke a harsh word and he loved his family. I am shocked that he has been taken from his family here but he is united now with Brekken. Denny will be missed.

  36. Ed so sorry to hear the news. For those of us who believe she rests in a special place. Thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.
    Mick

  37. Hank you were an awesome individual.I worked beside you for couple of great years.. You were a walking book of knowledge and taught me many valuable life assets. We became friends on and off the job. You will be missed by everyone that new you…Take that one last ride my friend you always be my heart and everyone else’s. P.S watch for falling sticks…

  38. Hank was a wonderful man and a good friend. He will be missed by us all. Have a great reunion up there with Bill, I know the two of you are dancing in the sky.
    With great memories
    Judy

  39. My thought and prayers to Teresa and entire family. I prayed everyday that God, my angels and Motger Mary to give me strength to endure another day.🙏 God and your angels are right beside of you. You just have to ask

  40. I’m a classmate of Denny’s. He was such a part of my life. Denny was best man in my wedding. He was at every event or fun time at ISU. He and I were both members of First Presbyterian Church in Villisca, IA. Denny was kind, gentle, and so special to our entire class. My ex-husband and I attended Denny and Jeanne’s wedding in Rice Lake. I’m sad that I can’t get to the funeral. Denny made a difference to so many people. No greater things could be said of someone. My heart is heavy. My condolences to Jeanne and the family. Denny was loved by many. May God be with the entire family. It is my prayer that you will feel the collective hug of the Hudson community and those that are extended from Southwest Iowa. Love and blessings to all of you.
    Pat Knoke Shipley

  41. Judy and family, so sorry for your loss. I do not ever remember Jim without a smile on his face. He will be missed by many.

    LaVerne Larson

  42. Denny was a good man the kind of person every town needs. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He was always there to give advice and help Hudson be a wonderful place to live. He was kind to all he had contact with as the City Planner and as a citizen of Hudson. He will be missed by all who knew him and mostly by his wonderful family.

  43. My heart is broken for your family. Words escape me. So I will send you love and pray for comfort and peace to blanket you.

    My Dad, Ozzie sends his love too.

  44. Thank you, Bob, for all the times we reffed together, along with your always-practical and beneficial advice over the years (decades). It was always fun to talk with you — on anything from hockey, All-Star Wrestling (the old AWA days…”wrasslin'”), your times at the car races in Iowa, and even your kids and grandkids.
    It’s a sad day knowing that you are not here. Know that you are missed by many!

  45. It was a pleasure taking care of Judy at PVH, she was a wonderful lady. We will miss her and her family.

  46. One Touch

    In the mist, time see all shadows.
    In the shadows, time stands still.
    In the stillness, a tear caresses your face.
    In that tear, memories are held.
    In those memories, the life of a loved one is renewed.

    Sharing memories, keeps them close to your heart.

  47. I remember with fondness, and dearly loved, his cocky and fun attitude whenever he volunteered at Hudson Hospital. It was always an adventure with him there, and he will be missed by many of us here at HH, even though it’s been a while since we’ve seen him. Wishing you fond memories.

  48. Jeg vil aldrig glemme deg jeg var fire år da du reiste jeg var med morfar på kaien og tok forvell når du reiste til USA.

    Takk for alle kjære og gode minner.🇳🇴🌹🌹❤️❤️

  49. Jake was in the same class as my son. It was a great class and a great group of kids. I worked at the high school and Jake alway had a way of bringing a smile to my face and to all that knew him. I send prayers to his entire family, who will miss him so much.

  50. So sorry to hear about Ervah. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time – Peter and Kirsti x

  51. Dear Annie, you have been a caring “mormor” for me all these years since I went to the wrong “mormor” many years ago. You where there for me when I lived in the US for a year. And you always took us inn when we visited the US over many years after that. Thank you for beeing who you where, I have so many good memories from times spendt with you.
    You mean more to me than you ever could imagine, I will fill you inn when we meet again.

    To flittige hender har langt seg til ro. Lyser fred over ditt minne. RIP moster Annie.

  52. Tracy, I am so sorry to hear about your wife. My heart goes out to you! Prayers and hugs, my friend. – Eastie

  53. Rest in peace, Anny.
    Takk for at du kom hjem til Norge slik at vi fikk bli kjent med deg og din familie. Det var alltid spennende når mormor og morfar (Johan) hadde fått besøk fra Amerika, hvem var de og hadde de med noe spennende. Dere hadde jo alltid med spennende godteri, som smakte helt anderledes enn det vi var vant til. Colasmak og kirsebærsmak – det var nytt for meg. Men også klær, sko, håndarbeid, leker, lp-plater, pynteting etc. hadde dere med dere fra Amerika. Mine første støvletter fikk jeg fra deg. Hvite, mykt skinn og knehøyde, jeg elsket dem.
    Takk for gode minner, Anny.
    Hvil i fred.

  54. Lisa and family, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers to your whole family. Teri & Dennis

  55. Annie was such an angel of the Lord. I loved her humor and her outgoing nature. She always had a smile on her face, and that is how I will remember her. My love and prayers go out to your family. I love you, Lisa.

  56. Your mother was one of the warmest and most caring people I have had the pleasure of knowing. May the love and mercy of our Lord be bestowed upon you and your family during this unfortunate time. My most sincere condolences.

  57. Dear Auntie Janet,
    We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Denis’s passing. We are so glad we could visit with him last Fall. We will always remember his good humor and love of his family. Take care and see you soon.
    Love, Gary & Chris

  58. Scott, Susie, Jeff and Family:
    John said “lots of great memories”!
    We are so sorry we were not able to make the visitation… but always know we love you all and think of you all often.
    Sincere Sympathy from The Luedtke’s
    John, Carol, Eric, Nicole and Tricia

  59. There are no words that can truly express my admiration and love for June Waalen. She mentored me and was my solid “rock” while assisting me as an educational aide at EP Rock Elementary, School District of Hudson for 25 years! June was always so kind, considerate and caring. She was like a mother to me always giving me wise guidance and advice while raising my own family. I will continue to cherish all the precious days of my life with June, both personally and professionally. Our sincere condolences to Don, Mary Ann, Jill, Karen and families. May God hold you warmly in his arms and blessings to you forever…Our love and care, Ann & Dan Siats

  60. Dear Janet, so sorry to see the passing of Dennis,you are in my prayers. Larry and I use to live next door to you in Baldwin, in the 4 plex apartments. Larry pass away 8 years ago.
    God comfort you in this time of sorrow.
    Love, Sandy

  61. My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Robin and Don. Robin was a terrific presence at our office and I always appreciated her positive energy, great attitude, and bright smile. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

  62. My dear friend Elise. You brought so much joy into my life. We laughed together, cried together, and dreamed together . I valued your opinion, learned so much from you, was in awe of your intelligence, and looked to you for guidance. You were a bright, shiny light in my life and I will be forever grateful to call you friend. Be at peace beautiful girl💕 I miss you!

  63. I loved you with alllll my heart beautiful girl. My life will never be the same without your amazing self. So many memories. I will always keep you in my heart

  64. I was so sorry to hear of Robin’s passing. Robin and I were school mates since kindergarten-we actually rode the bus home from our first day of kindergarten when we only lived two blocks away! Thank goodness the bus driver knew who we belonged too! She will be missed! Prayers to her parents-Sid and Janet-and her family.

  65. It is so difficult to loose a loved one. So sorry to hear of Robin and her husband’s passing. I remember her from her childhood when she would visit her Grandma and cousins in Hatley.
    She will always live in your hearts.. May your happy memories help ease you sorrows. Hugs to all!

  66. I was so blessed to get to spend last Christmas with Clyde and family came out to vegas. Which was a wonderful treat. Rest in peace. And not fighting that cancer.

  67. I was so sad to hear of Robins passing. All the years of wonderful memories growing up with Robin. Late night pizza at Sid and Jan’s with Robin and Joe, dressing up for a Halloween party with Joe and Robin and my brother Kevin, working together at the Melody Mill (sneaking a drink together, under age of course) and Cross Point Paper. Robin was ready for any adventure, and her laughter would always bring a smile to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  68. We are heartbroken for your families. What a tragic loss. Our thoughts and many prayers are with all of you. Hugs, the family of Maude & Leonard Kautza

  69. My sincere Sympathy and prayers to all of the families. My heart is breaking at the news of the loss of Robin and her husband, Don. I was a friend of Robin’s from her childhood days; I would play with her and her brothers. My name then was Cheryl Rahn, (Cherie) as I was known back then, her mother Janet was my Confirmation Sponsor. I lost touch with Robin after I married Bill Loper and moved away from Antigo, out to New Mexico, but I did keep up with her mother. Robin is an angel now, sent to watch over all of us. I will forever miss her. Rest In Peace Robin.

  70. We are grief stricken over the tragic loss of Don & Robin. We can’t imagine going to the lakehouse without hearing their laughter and seeing them dancing under the moonlight to their favorite songs. We send our love, support and prayers to the entire Kelley/Nowinski family.

  71. I have known Don almost my entire life. He was such a positive influence and wonderful friend to my dad Terry, mom Ruth, sisters, and I. He continued to support me when I started building my own family, and would have answered any call I gave him. I will remember his pearls of wisdom (that included some sarcasm) his laugh, the lake, the gallery, softball, the corvette, and his ability to make everyone around him feel like family. My favorite piece of advice that I still use today is “if someone makes a comment that your piece of cake is bigger, offer to trade them”. Don will be missed so much, but it was a blessing to have him in my life and an honor to call him my friend. Lots of love to Blake, Monica, Rachel, Dons family, and Robins family.

  72. How blessed we all were, to have this woman in our lives. The epitome of kindness and grace, she shone as a role model of how to walk this world as a wife, mother, aunt – and woman. My heart aches for the loss my cousins, and their children must be experiencing. I send you all a huge hug from Northern MN. And feel so grateful and honored to have had her in my life.

  73. Cindy, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your beautiful mom. You and your family are in my prayers.

    Blessings and love,
    Lisa (Dull) Seaman

  75. Sorry to see the loss of Irene but hope it can be a celebration of life. Irene always had a sparkle in her eye that I still remember. Best wishes to Denise and everyone else.

  76. Although we never had the privilege to meet Irene it’s been a blessing to know her daughter Donna many years. She raised a wonderful daughter and that speaks volumes of the parents who raised her and her siblings up. We are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers for comfort in your grief now and going forward. Deepest stmpathy and love to the family.
    The Dopp’s Steve, Pam and Lisa Jo

You will be reunited with Irene again very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under Jesus Christ Kingdom rule Daniel 2:44, that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord’s Prayer Matthew 6:9, 10, no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5 jw.org .

  80. I was shocked and deeply sadden to hear of Diane’s passing. The world has lost a good person. I remember Diane as a person with a great sense of humor and a kind heart. Though we have lost contact in the past years, I will always think fondly of her. Rest in peace Diane – you have gone home to be with our Lord and Savior.

  81. I’m saddened by this news. I had the pleasure of getting to know Warren while he, and my Father were at WinterGreen in Hudson.
    I noticed he always had a book as a constant companion wether it be in dining room or walking back to his room from wherever.
    We shared books and had several discussions about our favorite authors. He talked about his wonderful family and life in general.
    Thank you for adding his photo as it brought memories of this gentle
    Man.
    God Speed, Warren

  82. Dear Gardner family, please accept our deepest condolences and sympathy for the loss of Donny your son, and brother.

  85. We were blessed to have known you, your work with vacation bible school was amazing. A real one of a kind. I will always be grateful for your kindness and caring for my Grandchildren. Peace

  86. We will miss you terribly on this Earth Diane! You created such fun and joy in your Faith Formation students. My kids LOVED interacting with you as did I! You made understanding God and Faith fun for all ages. Heaven has gained an amazing Angel and a person who knew more jokes than I even knew existed. You will be missed!

  87. Oh heaven will never be the same! A true earth angel has just joined the choirs in heaven and we will miss you here, Diane! Thank you for your joy, your laughter, your spirit and your faith. Truly you were one of a kind and I am blessed to have called you friend. Our paths have not crossed much these past few years, but I will treasure all of the retreats we worked together, our day of fun at Tulum/Xel ha, and the kindness you’ve shown my family. I will miss you. Sing loud with the choirs of angels and keep them laughing. I know you will. 🙂 Peace, my friend. Rest easy.

  88. Scott, Susie, Jeff,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of Don. Enjoyed everytime that I was able to talk to him while he was working for EOP.
    Scott- I will hook up with you when I return to Hudson in November.

    Susie – Sorry that I was not around to spend some time with you while you were back.

    Roger Bevers

  89. Mary, Sue and Mike my thoughts and prayers are with you in the lost of Roberta. I remember all the great times we had together in the summers on the farm. I will have the Carmelites offer their prayers for Roberta.

    To the immediate family of Roberta my deepest sympathy. She will be missed by all.

  90. May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

  91. Jim and family,
    I am so sorry to hear about Sandy she was such a sweet lady.
    I haven’t seen her for a long time I always liked visiting
    with her very interesting person and fun .
    I wanted to go to the funeral but I couldn’t arrange it. I don’t drive
    anymore.
    I miss Clyde so much I know he was having a hard time so he is in
    Gods hands now. He had Parkinson’s so we knew he wasn’t going to
    get any better. God’s prayers are with you, Donna Christensen

  92. Received the news of Dan’s passing this morning, and wished to pay respects to a terrific fellow. I had the pleasure of working with Dan for ten years and found him intelligent, gregarious, great company and, perhaps most of all, his own man. It would be all too easy for sadness to rule the day, but his infectious laugh, broad smile, and firm friendship are all that surround memories of Dan.

  93. There was always laughter when Dan was present. One of those guys that just made me smile. He will be remembered fondly.

  94. Sending prayers & wishes for comfort & peace straight from God for all of you. Hoping these days of great grief are punctuated with memories of Sandy’s smile, wit, wisdom & tangible feelings of her presence. I am so sorry for your loss. 💔

  95. A sad day for so many… Your smile was beautiful and contagious. Your loving, caring personality will be missed but your sweet laughter will live on in our hearts forever.

    Jerry, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  96. Shirley, Mom, my friend,
    I am going to miss you so much! We had so many amazing years of fun together. So many laughs, puzzles, you taught me how to play cribbage, and all 3 of my kids. Although, you could always kick my butt, you’d be so proud, I am the top player in the fish house! All 3 of my kids are excellent players too! Stephanie brought over a puzzle a few months back. Her and I talked fondly of the time her and I brought you a lobster dinner and you ate, and we spent the evening putting a puzzle together and talking. I’m really going to miss those times with you. It was so hard watching your body fail you and the pain you had to endure on a daily basis. You are one tuff lady and I have much respect for you!
    You taught me so many things throughout the 37 years I’ve known you. You’ve truly been a blessing in my life. A Mother figure and ALWAYS a friend. Thank you for that!
    Dan seen how much pain you were in, and came down from heaven and carried you up the stairs to heaven. Those gates opened, God healed you!
    You are free my friend! No more pain! Watch over us beautiful angel! We will keep our wonderful memories of you close and speak of you lovingly often!
    Until we meet again,
    Carrie Kane & family

  97. To the Grant Family – I am so sorry for your loss! I was an Ultrasound student from Saint Cloud Technical College and Don was my Preceptor during my externship. I just recently moved back to MN and wanted to get in touch with him and tell him how much I appreciated everything he did for me but I was saddened when I found his Obituary. He was a great person and great teacher.

  98. Oh Jim..Kathy..Jack..n Ann

    My deepest sympathy for the loss of Debbie.

  101. I can’t believe Mark is gone. Mark was a dear friend to my wife and me. I worked closely with Mark for over two decades. He was also one of the kindest, smartest and highly dedicated Park Rangers I ever worked with. I could always count on Mark to be persistent and creative. Whether it was an issue relating to enforcement, public safety, park and dam operations or the interpretive program, his contributions would nearly always prove to exceed the requirements of his job description.

    He enjoyed playing practical jokes and inherited his dad’s barbed wit. I am going to miss him.

  102. Kay and family,
    I will always remember how gracious your mother was to me. I know that she will be missed.

  103. Kay and family,
    So sorry to read of your mom’s passing. May your memories and God’s love bring you peace.
    Susan Hutton

  104. Marge will always be in our memories. Our friendship with her and Rod, Betty, Bill and fellow Ericksonites will always be back when life was good.
    She was a beautiful and caring woman! Love and Condolences to the family she left behind!!
    Jerry and Gaye Frye

  105. Shirley,
    Although our relationship was short, it was very memorable.
    I sure miss our daily conversations and the laughs we would have .. I miss coming to visit you, sipping coffee, working on puzzles. Just chit chatting.
    My heart is at peace knowing you and Dan are together , his loss broke many hearts including yours and knowing you two are together again makes it a little easier.
    Just know I miss you and love you bunches !! Till we meet again ❤

    Your friend Julie

  106. JJ, was a one of a kind lady! She loved life and was always full of sunshine! I loved talking to her, she always had a story, and gave good advice. Her life was intriguing and full of color, and I loved hearing about her adventures. JJ not only gave me her friendship, she also made me take home a cat that was hanging around her house. She and Jack were going back to Florida and recognized how sweet this cat was. I named him Jordy and has turned out to be the best cat I’ve ever had! So, thank you JJ, for everything! I will miss you tremendously! My heart is broken, you have left us way too soon! But, I just know that Heaven is a lot brighter with you being there! Until we meet again, my friend, I will miss you everyday.
    Hugs💝💝 Julie Myster

  107. Dear Kathy, Becca and Family,
    We are so very sorry and extend our heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your beloved Doug. I believe the last time we saw Doug was several years ago at UMD’s Farmers Market, proudly displaying the apples from his orchard. May special memories help ease your pain during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers. May you feel God’s presence, His love and His strength.

    With Love,
    Steve and Linda Olcott

  108. Wilgren Family,

    I am so very sorry to learn of Marge’s passing. My parents had many wonderful times with both Rod and Marge. I will always remember her as such a kind, caring and thoughtful person.

    Deepest sympathies to you.
    Amy Derr

  109. Dear Wilgren family:
    We send you our condolences as you remember and celebrate the life of Marjorie. She seems to have lived a full and rich life surrounded by her family, meaningful work, social engagement, church activity, and a variety of fun activities. May she rest in peace and may your fond memories sustain you in the months and years ahead.

    Sincerely
    Bridgette and Tom Preston
    Portland, OR

  110. Kathy and Family,
    So sorry for your loss of Dug – he was a great man and a dedicated husband and father. The days ahead will be hard but I pray that God will bring you strength and may all of your many memories sustain you during this difficult time. With love, Dawn

  111. I’m so very sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. What a good man and an exampke of a life well lived! Keep those good memories close in heart. God’s blessings to you Kathy and your family.

  112. Katherine

    I will always remember our trip to the Grand Canyon. I don’t know if Steve was laughing at me (for my obvious pain) or just being friendly . He was a great person who always made me feel like he was my long-lost brother. How he lived his life and ultimately dealt with his disease will be his final gift to you, your sons, grandchildren and the rest of us who were blessed to know him. God speed Steve

  113. While my faith journey began a couple blocks away in 1978, First Baptist was the first place and Rev. Bradley the first pastor where that journey began to take shape. Good memories of a gracious and godly servant leader.

  114. We’ll miss Doug a very friendly person always eager to strike up a conversation. When Doug would yell we always knew when Charlie (his dog) was out and about the neighborhood as they both would often make their way over to sit and chat. We both enjoyed sports cars and a variety of mechanical things and we never seemed to run out of subjects to talk about.
    Rest in peace dear friend.

  115. Right now it’s September 17. I learned just now of your loss Claudia. I extend my sympathy and am praying for you and yours, and all who loved your Mom. 2 Thessalonians 2:16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.

  116. Hi Faye and Family, I am so sorry to hear about Carl. I didn’t hear of Carl’s passing until tonight, Monday. I am out of town, don’t know if I’ll get back in time for tomorrow, if not I will see you later this week. I am so sorry, Love Carol,

  117. Faye and Family
    May your memories lift you up in the coming days. His smile will always be remembered.
    Deb and Zane

  118. What a lifetime of accomplishments in such s short time.
    Steve was an incredible man. I’m so sorry for your loss Kathy & family. Prayers to you all.

  119. To all of Steve’s family, my sympathy and prayers are with you. May you feel God’s comfort, strength and love during this difficult time. God Bless you~Kathy

  120. Deepest condolences to the Franklin family and friends for the loss of your loved one Shirley. Look forward to seeing God’s Psalms 83: 18 wonderful promise fulfilled for the loved ones we have lost in death a resurrection back the life very soon for the righteous and unrighteous John 5:28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  121. While Steve is singing in the heavenly choir, breathing easy and totally healed, we’re down here on earth mourning the loss of our dear friend. Can’t help it, but somehow it just doesn’t seem right.

    Between the two of them, I think Steve and Jan could master anything—and do it right! They made a great couple, and Gene and I consider ourselves richly blessed to have been a part of their lives.
    One if the things that made Steve so special to us was that ornery little smile with the twinkle in his eyes. When we spotted that, there was no doubt he was up to something!

    If you knew Steve, you loved him! That’s just the way it was!

    May God richly bless his “bride,” as he often called Jan, as well as all of his dear family!

    Gene and Jeanne Buchanan
    Broken Arrow, OK

  122. Sorry for your loss! Thoughts and prayers to Jan’s family. I am an old co-worker of Jan’s at Andersen Corporation! I have not been in contact with Jan of late, but carry many fond memories of her during our typing pool years!

  123. Deepest condolences to the Trebus family and friends for the loss of your loved one Jacob.Very soon Jesus Christ will resurrect the loved ones we have lost in death back to life Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29, right here on a brand new Paradise Earth no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  124. Dear Anne and the Persico family,
    I am very sorry to for the death of you Dad. I remember him fondly; as a child I had given him the positive nick name of ‘Big Guy’. Jack took it in stride and I think he understood that I meant Big in a metaphysical way. …I spied, through my childhood eyes, a guy who seemed to have a big heart/caring person, who seemed to try and mask it through some bravadoness. (That kept me on my toes some, guessing where exactly he was coming from.) But he seemed to really care about his family and the world around him. And he seemed to be an empowered person; whom I believed had the intentions of doing good and positive things with that power.
    I wish I had the magical/healing words that are needed when dealing with the death of a loved one. The depth and breadth of such a loss is too large a subject matter to fit on any card or confined space. ‘May he rest in peace.’ Seems like a step in the right direction, but is like a bunt in the game of baseball, that makes it two inches past home plate…just not at all enough to get a runner home or in this case the needed words of condolence, solace and peace to the bereaved.
    I offer my condolences. My heart is very heavy and sad at the death of Jack Persico a.k.a. ‘Big Guy’. I am thankful for having known Big Guy and his family members, especially Anne, who was/is closest to me in age. I am thankful for the positive energy that Big Guy brought forth and shared. I am sorry to see him go.And I extend a big metaphysical hug to you all. May you knowing this give you(s) a step toward comfort, solace and peace. I will remember Big Guy, Jack Persico.

  125. Hi Sue and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Moms are the glue that hold the family together. When they pass on it breaks that bond. Sorry to hear of your loss. I wish you all peace.

  126. To my dear sister, Dodie, and her children. You have been in my thoughts for days. I hold you in my heart as you put your husband and father to rest.
    I know he was extremely proud of each and everyone of you. And loved you very much.

    I have and will miss the fun times we had together.

    Barb

  127. Mary will always be remembered for her love and generosity. She was always so good to us and made our family feel very loved.

    Her sense of humor and kindness will not be forgotten.

    Sending much love , Julie, Danny, & Kellianne

  128. Charlie Grant was a man of great integrity and kindness. He was a fair and totally impartial man. One only God could put amongst us. Thank you for your service to St Croix county and all the people you have helped over the years. Your kindness to my father and to me left a deep positive impression that has lasted my lifetime. Charlie Grant, they don’t come any better. Love to your entire family and your family in blue.

  129. I worked with Delores at the Hospital Hospital and she was a
    wonderful person and cook. She was supper cook and would
    do dinner also when needed.
    I live at Wintergreen now and will miss her smiles when I go
    to CCH and Pine Ridge.

    My sympathy to all the family. Donna Christensen

  130. I saw lot of your mom when we were neighbors. Saw all the family too. Those were the good old days! Wish we could relive them. My deepest sympathy to all you kids and families.

  131. I was privileged to be St. Croix County Treasurer while Charlie was still on the County Board. His respect for my office was great, but no great than my respect and admiration for such a wonderful, giving man. You will be missed my many Charlie — but we all know you will continue to fly high and watch over all those you love and care about. My sympathies to the family.

  132. I always enjoyed our conversations comparing notes from our home towns in Germany. Melitta always had a smile and an interesting story to tell. I’m sorry for your loss. She was a wonderful lady.

  133. Hello Sue and family, I saw the news of your Mothers passing through Beth.I am sending you my deepest sympathy for your loss. I wish you and your family memories that keep her close to you all as you continue on in your life’s journey. Ginny

  134. Mia was one of the nicest people I knew. I met her through selling
    Tammy Jewelry its been a long time I did very well with it with Mia’s
    help. We helped each other a lot if we didn’t have the piece for the
    show we wanted we would find it.
    We would coffee together and would talk about our interest in Tammy
    Jewelry, family and other things I was so glad she was my Mentor and a
    very good friend.
    She and I got together other time’s for shopping and lunch.
    Rest in peace Mia
    Donna Brown Christensen

  135. Word’s cannot express the sadness we feel for you dealing with the death of your mother and sister. I remember that my mother had us kids go across the street and have your mother cut our hair when we were younger and also she fixed my mothers hair. Diane had always a smiling every time I seen her. Keep the good memories in your heart. She will be deeply missed. Our prayers are with you. Patti (Harwell) Lawson

  136. Cuz; you are loved and greatly missed. You were a terrible tease & always brought a smile to our faces! Sending love and prayers Dodie and all the Persicos!

  137. A legacy of St. Croix County has left us, a bit sadder but better, for all his good deeds and kind heart. Peace to the Grant and Wilcoxsin families. Please keep Facebooking Vera, you have a great talent!

  138. To the Grant family and friends please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one Charles. Hope and comfort comes from God’s wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death to be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth by his son Jesus Christ it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time Acts 24:15; John 5: 28, 29; Revelation 21: 1-5.

  139. I loved to see Charlie walk through the door of the Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley because I knew something GOOD for kids was about to happen! We lost a good one in Charlie, but his legacy and commitment to children will live on…rest in peace Charlie.

  140. My Dad worked with Charlie. When me and my sister were small Charlie let us attend several of his outings at the JR Ranch where there was held a day of fun for school bus attendants, kids as well. We had so much fun.

    I remember Dad working on Charlie’s retired patrol car. I was driving it back to dads from Charlie’s and stopped at the 1st national back drive through. I bumped the drivers door into one of the divider lane posts and dented it. I was so upset. I got it back home and we did some repairs and attempted to bang out the dent, not a lot of success.

    When we returned the car to Charlie and apologized and I was so embarrassed. He just smiled and said that’s ok.

    Charlie was a good man and it was an honor to know him. He was one of the reasons I pursued a career in law enforcement as a Park ranger, for 24 years.

    Rest in peace and all my love to his family, Mark

  141. Charlie was the greatest ambassador for all things good. It was truly a pleasure to watch this man interact with anyone he encountered. He will be missed but never forgotten.

  142. Tom,
    So sorry for your loss- how lovely that you celebrated
    your 50th anniversary.
    Ginny, high school classmate and friend

  143. Dear Tom and family,
    Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel
    at this time. Pat was such a special friend to us for so many years.
    We were blessed with so many fun memories from listening
    to great music together to the love of the same
    kind of Streetrod’s. Her friendship was a gift from above. The love and memories we shared with Pat can never be taken away. I feel she is still with us only as a beautiful loving angel looking down on us.
    Our hearts and prayers go out to you, Lori,TJ and Darcy in this time of sorrow.

  144. Sorry for your loss Tom and family!! Fond memories of all those years ago playing softball !!

  145. What an Adorable, loving and kind person.
    I remember her smiling all the time.
    I feel blessed for the times I was able to spend with such a wonderful person. What an amazing family you all are.
    My heart goes out to all of you

  146. Beautiful woman, inside and out! She did an amazing job raising all 3 of her children. There is no prouder accomplishment than that!

  147. Marlene brought such joy to everyone who encountered her. She was sweet and kind and had a wonderful sense of humor. Her memory will always stay with me.

  148. Mary was a special lady. I enjoyed talking to her whenever I had a chance. She will be missed but now she’s back with Bob. Friends forever Randy Peterson

  149. Marlene was such a light in this world. She always had a smile on her face and kindness in her heart. I know she struggled so with her Alzheimer’s Disease at the end of her journey so I am happy she is at peace. And with Will. I can see them both wit the biggest smiles on their faces, holding hands, and walking in heaven.

    I hope that brings peace and joy to the hearts of her family.

  150. My sincere condolences…. I type this with tears in my eyes and a smile on my lips as I recall all the conversations – the poetry recitals, the recipe sharing, the pool wardrobe malfunctions, the songs, the laughter, her perseverance through treatments & illnesses, the prayers, the life stories, the life lessons…Wow! I have so many great Mary moments! May God gently guide you through this time. many prayers and blessings – Colleen, the pool person from the the old Baldwin pool.

  151. Marlene was so kind, generous of her time. I’m so glad I met her, worked with her. She will be dearly missed.

  152. We’re going to miss you Earl. We’ve got so many wonderful memories of holidays, reunions and countless card games. Dales family was so lucky to have had you join.

  153. We remember Mary Freese as a sweet lady with a pretty smile. Prayers for God’s love and comfort for the family!

  154. To the Grant Family, We are thinking of you and praying for Gods comfort during this difficult time. We will never forget Don as we knew him back in Pentecostal Assembly so many years ago. We still remember Don singing with Ray. The song that comes to our minds is, “we’ve read the back of the book and we win”. We were also blessed to see him visit our church during one of his trips to Phoenix.
    Gods comfort and peace be with you all.

    Fay and Alex

  155. Pastor Grant was a great man and a godly inspiration to many.
    I know he lead many hearts to Jesus and will be blessed by thanking in his kingdom. My heart is with all of you in this hard time, but don’t forget that he is rejoicing with Jesus I’m heaven, no more pain or tears. I remember him saying once “we are all just passing through here”.
    In Christ’s love!

  156. It is with a heavy heart as I read this obituary. I feel honored to have known and worked with Don on his goal of building a physical facility for the congregation. I will always remember his smile, enthusiasm and can do attitude. Don was a great friend. I’m sure Don had said his good byes
    and was ready for Gods plan.
    Lois you and your family are in my thoughts.
    God Bless,
    Gary

  157. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to your entire family. I worked with Di for over two years and really enjoyed her sense of humor and her direct approach to life. My father was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly before your Mom and she was such a support to me. She always asked me how he was doing. She had a great heart. I will miss her!

    Blessings to your family,
    Sherry Prochnow

  158. One of the most beautifully written tributes I have ever read! I have very fond memories of Donny, what I grew up calling him. He will forever be in my heart and his song, Jesus I Love You Best Of All, on my lips. Lois and Donny were one of those special couples that I looked up to.

    Donny, you and Bro. Ray Nicholls rolled out the “red carpet” at my wedding, but now you have had the “red carpet” rolled out for you in Heaven. We rejoice with you as a Bride of Christ who has been found spotless and without wrinkle.

    Lois and family, I grieve for your loss but am comforted knowing that you have a hope which is in Heaven. May the Lord bring you comfort and peace in these difficult times.

    God bless,

    Colleen Stewart Calderon

  159. To the Grant family- my thoughts and prayers are with you. I work with Johanna and Know how strong your family bonds is- may you cherish all the memories and blessings you have had with Don.

    Peg

  160. I did some painting for Bob and Mary. Of coarse I had to sit down and have cup of coffee and cookies with them. Great people both of them.

  161. Bob and Mary were longtime friends of my parents Marcus and Jeanne. We and they shared many happy memories on the farmstead in Pleasant Valley first entrusted to Marcus and Jeanne, and then to Bob and Mary.
    Dad always said, “There are no friends like the old friends.” Thoughts and prayers to the family. Sincerely, Lee

  162. We so sorry to hear this news, Doris was a kind and gentle soul. Our sympathy to all the family.

  163. Our thoughts and prayers to the Edholm family. Doris was always so positive and upbeat. She made going to work a pleasure. She was and is an angel. May god bless you all and provide you with comfort and peace.
    RIP Doris.

  164. I remember having her for a recess monitor at school. She was always so happy to be around the kids. Whenever I would see her at her house, she would always say hi and ask how I was doing. There was never a dull moment with Doris. She has changed many lives in a positive way. Rest in peace. – Nathan L

  165. Doris was always one of my favorite women in Hudson. My pleasure was working with her for years at GS Electric and seeing her all around town. I will miss her forever young life. My love to you all

  166. Jean and Ron,
    What heartbreaking news. I did not know Julie, but know how proud of her you were and understand the love of parents. Our sincere sympathy to you and your family.
    With love, Karen

  167. Mr. Bader gave me a life lesson I’ve never forgotten and used his example of giving a kid a another chance. He Instead of a speeding ticket he asked me to get a haircut. He said he would check with the school principal. I got the haircut and after some time the principal told me he had received a call from Deputy Bader regarding said haircut. This was in 1966, I always smile when I think about that time he gave a kid a break. Thank you for the fine example of kindness. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one over the years. RIP.

  168. In recent yrs our family has lost track of each other. The Lorenz family sends our deepest sympathy to you girls and Joe. We like to remember the good memories that we had together when Tiny and my mom (Lorraine) were alive. I always enjoyed her infectious laugh and stories. She was always one of my favorite cousins. Bless you all. Judy Lorenz Kahler

  169. So very sorry to hear the news about your daughter’s passing, Jean & Ron.
    I cannot imagine your pain to lose such a lovely daughter at the prime of her life! So tragic to leave two small children and a husband behind. My sympathy to you and your entire family as you mourn this untimely death. Hold her close in your memories always! Jarell Kuney

  170. So Sorry to see this about your Dear Sweet Beautiful Mom.. I thought your Mom and Dad were the GREATEST. My Prayers are with you and your Family. God Bless. Steve & Rita Adams.

  171. We offer our sympathy and condolences to Sandy’s family. I knew when I was in the 3M Medical Department from 1977 to 2005. May she rest in eternal peace.

  172. Dear Ron and Jean:
    My heart felt sorrow when I read the news of your daughter, Julie’s, passing. Even tho I didn’t know Julie, I know you. And so, as a parent-to-parent, I wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and extend my sincere sympathies to you both and your family at this difficult time. Wishing you peace and comfort,

  174. Was privileged to meet Sandy on our first day of nursing school, Sept 2,1969. Instantly drawn to her sweet smile and fun personality.I was a day hop, lived at home but Sandy was always welcome at Mother Condon’s house, my mother loved her too, that said alot, she was very selective! She kept me sane during our OB rotation, that’s another whole story, probably kept me from quitting, here I am 45 years retired! Then there were state boards, chasing down the postal guy to get her results while he stopped for lunch.Then there was 3 wonderful years working our first jobs together and not only living together but being roommates, I had brothers at home, loved living at Bentonshire. I was a mellow gal until I met Sandy and our other partner in crime, Shelley. The bloody bucket, Red Carpet, Domino’s! Dancing fools! Going to miss our annual visits, she listened so we’ll. l’ll still be talking to her, and we’ll be dancing to “Maggie Mae” by the sexy Rod Stewart at the Red Carpet while getting a 25 cents pitcher of beer!

  175. Julie and I were friends and classmates in Hudson from middle school through high school. I always enjoyed being around her because of the joy she brought to her daily life. She was so welcoming, funny, smart, and carried many beautiful talents. I have not seen her since one of our return trips home from college but I too enjoyed following her on Facebook through her move to and life in Italy. I send my deepest condolences to Deneb, her wonderful parents-Ron and Jean, John, and her extended family and friends. The HHS Class of 1993 lost one of its best!

    Sincerely, Nancy (Peterson) Steffen

  176. Ione was one of the sweetest people I knew. She always had a
    laugh or smile on her face. She was a good friend of my mother’s
    Lilah Brown. It was fun when I saw her we always had a lot to
    talk about.
    Rest in peace Ione.
    Donna Christensen

  177. I was lucky enough to teach at ASM with Julie. I loved her beautiful smile and her welcoming heart. She lit up every room she entered and it was obvious that she loved her students. She will be greatly missed.

  178. I had only one opportunity to visit with Lois before she died. She was a little restless when I arrived, but started settling down nicely as I talked to her. She said she liked Irish music so I sang ‘When Irish Eyes Are Smiling and Amazing Grace. She indicated she liked county also. We prayed together The Lord’s Prayer, which she recited about half of it. She was very willing to receive a blessing from me. By the time I was ready to leave, she had calmed down a lot and indicated she wanted to rest.

    My prayers and sympathies out to all family and loved ones.
    Gregg J Miller
    Adoray Spiritual Chaplain

  179. I was fortunate to reconnect with the Troyers many years ago through Facebook. Our families were very close when the kids were young.

    One of my greatest joys was watching Julie in Italy. Seeing all the wedding pictures, being able to watch as she and Deneb had their children. It was so very evident how in love they were and how much fun they had together. That was the beauty of Facebook, you get to see the joy and support during the sorrow.

    My heart breaks for Deneb, their children and all the family who are grieving. She was a shining light wherever she landed. All the photos that were posted, she always had that smile. Hang onto all those memories and that smile. We love you.

  180. Julie was my flat mate our first year in Italy. We were both so excited to be in Italy and knew how lucky we were to be in a great school. Julie and I lived on Via Mose, in the little village of Opera. We, along with our upstairs neighbors April and Juliet became fast friends. Julie and I were the lucky ones who had a TV and Saturdays consisted of going to the Opera outdoor market to pick up delicious little chickens cooked on the rotisserie and salad items, going back to the apartment and feasting on our purchases with wonderful red wine. We’d have Italian MYV on and dance around to music in the language we grew to love and danced on mini trampolines. We spent nights exploring the Navigli, dressing in our best dresses and making friendships that would hold strong for years after some of us left ASM. We traveled together, danced together fell in love with Italians and Italy. It was truly a golden time. Through it all Julie was someone I learned how to teach better, smile bigger, and enjoy life more. When she asked me to write a poem for her wedding I was so touched and honored. Julie had a way of making each person in her life feel special, unique and loved. I will miss her smile, her laugh, and the pearls of wisdom she shared with me… like, “always assume positive intentions” and “always be the bigger person”. I’ve held her words close to my heart and will continue to do so. We are so fragile as have so much to learn. When I think of Julie I will remember to live well and love well in her honor. Ti voglio tanto bene, cara Julie.

  181. My friend Sheena,
    You were a bright light in my day while at CCH. You took such good care of mom (Margaret). I know you are looking down from heaven. It was truly my pleasure to have known you.

  182. Barbara, I am so glad I got to know you better I enjoyed talking
    to you and getting to know you. You always had a smile and
    liked to visit with people. When I first came to Wintergreen
    you were one of the first people I met .
    I’m sure your family will miss you it will leave a space in their
    lives I know you’ll be missed at Wintergreen.
    A Friend Donna

  183. Will miss you Ralph. Miss your wit when you came into the store. You were Dad,s honorary pall bearer and now you two can talk again. Bless you. Prayers for the family.

  184. A blessing she was to many. The Merry Hearts ministry enjoyed having her sing with us at Park View several times. The cookies were such a treat too. My husband Steve is a second cousin to Ruthie. His grandmother Annie VanSomeren Brummels was Joe’s sister and Ruthie’s aunt.
    God bless her precious memory until we meet again at our
    heavenly home.
    With sympathy to all of the family,
    Joan and Steven Boldt

  185. Georgia and family of Pat King,

    We grew up in the same neighborhood many years ago. I haven’t had much contact with Pat in many years but she was a fun loving person and she will be missed by many. My sympathy to all of you.

    Bev Benedict

  186. Ruthie was one of the best! Gave with her heart and her hands with baking cookies! We were blessed to have her at Parkview when Grandma was there and she was like a sister to her. We were blessed to have her a part of our personal family and family at Zion — Rest in peace Ruthie!

  187. Our sincere wishes for peace and acceptance. The loss of a child is a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Your kind heart, generosity, lively spirit & support to your neighbors, friends & community is beyond expectations! You will be missed, but always remembered as a monumental part of the Houlton and surrounding community. Hugs to your family as they seek comfort in their memories of all the good times they shared with you.

  198. I attribute many qualities to my grandmother, my love of travel, my stubbornness, and my distaste for bananas to name a few. She was a strong presence in our family and will be always fondly remembered and dearly missed. xoxo

  199. Aunt Ruthie was a wonderful blessing to me when my wife Delores passed. Her cookies were such a delight for my children. Not once but many times she would keep the treats coming. Miss you Auntie

  200. Your mom felt like all our moms. She was so caring, loving, and accepting. She always treated us with her famous chocolate chip cookies at the Middle School. She made us all feel so loved and appreciated. Now it is our time to show her how much she was appreciated. She will be missed.
    Love to all of you,
    Dan and Mary Klaustermeier

  201. Beautiful, kind, hard-working, friendly, funny, loving, interesting Sheena.
    I had the honor of working for Sheena at the Valley House back in the ’90’s — Sheena’s huge heart and calm professionalism and natural affinity for hospitality made everyone feel like Family; and made work fun. I have many happy memories of Sheena and everyone at the Valley House. Thank you. Rest In Peace dear beautiful Sheena.
    Deepest Sympathy to Sheena’s whole family, especially Jerry, Billy and Jonny, and her many many friends too (especially Paul Belisle!)
    Lea Wulf

  202. Just absolutely adored this wonderful lady! Her hugs and positive, tell it like it is, no non-sense spunky attitude is her trademark! She helped me see life from a place of freedom! We loved talking about our faith in Jesus over a cup of coffee that she’d never let me pay for and how wonderful God is. I am happy to know she is at peace and I will wait patiently until I can see her again! She doted on my kids like a Gramma and just last week Madelyn made Sheena’s AWESOME pudding enhanced chocolate chip cookies and Jared I am sure found his love of coffee through Sheena’s hostess with mostest spirit. We will miss you, Sheena. Love you! Big hugs~ Jerry, Jon, Katie and Billy

  203. Sheena was always a wonderful person to work with at the Highlander with a warm heart. Even though we lived far apart all these years, whenever we would see each other it was like no time had gone past. I will miss her deeply!

  204. Many fond memories of Sheena. Always welcoming with a great smile and warm hugs! She will be missed by many that loved her.

  205. Rest In Peace “Sheena from Scotland” I will miss seeing your smiling face and our daily banter 😉You were a wonderful example of grace 🌷while still being a patient advocate. Not an easy task…but you did it with a sense of ease & a smile 😊 Thank you for the kind & thoughtful way you treated all of the staff who cared for your loved one. We will miss you ❤️

  206. We will always remember Sheena with her big smile and warm heart full hugs. One in a million.

  207. The world was a better place because of you dear Sheena. May your family find comfort in the knowledge you are loved by all who knew you

  208. My favorite word for Jack is “Swell”. No matter what he was dealt with in life, his answer to how he was, was always “swell”. Our hearts go out to you Kathy and to your sons and daughter and all the other wonderful progeny of whom you are both so proud. Wish we could be with you at the time to offer what comfort we can. Jack has gone to a “Swell” place where he is hale and hearty again and watching over you with love and tenderness. We are so proud to have known you both and been a part of your life.

  209. I can’t make your memorial service, but my heart will be there. We have been best friends forever. We flew through the teens, concerts & dances, boys, our summer job at the resort. Next it was on to our “camping” trips, x-country skiing. My first time flying, trip to Reno to visit my cousin, what a blast we had. When my baby was born, you were the first one there to welcome her & bring a gift. I will miss the birthday cards that always showed up, Rest in peace my dear friend. Love Cheryl

  210. Action Jackson, will miss you. You always kept things lively. Best of friends and loyal golf partner. God speed. Ted and Marilyn Marx

  211. Seems like only yesterday the intrepid Spring Valley motorcycle gang departed for Sturgis with Buffalo Jack Kusilek in the lead. Always fun and always the center of entertainment. Sure will miss you Jack.
    Barry

  212. Sending love and hugs to Donna’s family. God has welcomed her home. Your spirit will live on thru the wonderful memories people cherish in their hearts.

  213. When we were children and the family would go camping at Perch Lake, Barb and I would cross the lake in a row boat. Me rowing and Barb playing guitar and singing. She was the cool cousin I wanted to emulate. As adults, Barb was the rallying supporter for the entire family. If there was ever a wedding, anniversary or funeral, Barb & Greg were there together to show their support. We will always remember her smile, her sharp wit, her laughter and how she made us laugh too. Greg, her children, and her grandchildren were at the center of her communications and she shared photos and stories that made it clear they were here pride and joy in life. I will miss all of it. We are brokenhearted to lose you Barb, but your memory and your zest will be with us forever. Rest in Peace Dear Cousin.

  214. Rest in Peace, beautiful lady. You were a gift to this world. My sincerest condolences to Greg and the family during this most difficult time. May you find peace and joy in the memory of your beautiful angel.

  215. So sorry to hear of the loss of Barb. I’m sure the girls are up to some thing fun up in heaven. They both were always laughing and having a good time. Now they can have that Miller lite together that Jeanne always wanted. Thinking of all of you and wish you comfort in the days to come.

  216. So sad for the loss of this wonderful woman on earth. She loved life and her smile always lit up a room and the hallways at 3M. Heaven has gained an Angel. Thoughts and prayers for her family and close friends! RIP

  217. The world has lost a beautiful soul. I will miss that sweet always smiling face. She faced her battles with grace. I know Jesus open his arms to her when she entered heavens gate. Bless her family as they grieve through this tremendous loss. Hopefully her strength will help them all through this. Much love to those she left behind.

  218. My heart truly goes out to you and your family. Working with Camille and sharing beautiful stories about her mom, she raised a beautiful and loving and strong woman and family. I was also blessed to see the love Camille and Steve had for her. I was thankful to have seen her moms beautiful amazing artwork in Camille’s home. Such a gift. She raised a beautiful family. Many prayers too all of you.

  219. Donna,
    You were a kind and friendly neighbor. Welcoming us and sharing your stories and experiences.
    Rest in peace. You will be remembered.

  220. It has been an honor knowing you Roxy and sharing grandmother duties with you! You raised a wonderful family and your light will shine through them in years to come. Rest well you are an wonderful example of a very strong woman for them. My love and prayers to Gary, Joe, Nikki, Jody, Scott, Henry, Isla, Olivia and family.
    Love, Karol & Dennis Johnson.

  221. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Chuck, Micheala and Vivian on your loss. Tina was one of a kind.

  222. Our deepest condolences in the loss of your sweet David. I know he fought the cancer with all his might to stay with you. He has achieved his place in Heaven and will wait patiently. He is probably already filling it with his carvings! How beautiful it will be. I am sorry we will not be there to support you at this time but I know you will be fine. So many people loved him and love you.

  223. I have worked with Tina for the last 16 years and she was one of the kindest of them all. She was a devoted mother and nurse, and worked hard.. I will miss her smile. She always found the good in everything and looked at the bright side to all. Rest in Peace my friend I will miss our conversations! Till we meet again. FLY HIGH!

  224. Betty and Family,
    Our very heartfelt condolences. Dick was one very special person. We are so thankful, proud, and blessed that we had the privilege of knowing him and becoming good friends. We are going to miss him so much down here in Florida. We will never forget him. Take comfort in knowing his wings will guide you through the days to come and he will be watching over all of you until you meet up on the other side. All our love to all of you. Dick & Lana

  225. Pat, Janet and family,

    Our condolences. May your memories lift you in the coming days.

  226. Dear family, my name is Anna, I worked with Tina years ago and also loved working with her. Very pleasant, quiet spoken. When my father was a CCH, she took very good care of him, and my dad appreciated her very much. My heart goes out to her daughter and family.
    Anna Schweitzer.

  227. My heart is heavy upon hearing of Zac’s departure from this world. We will miss him. I remember him fondly as he and his siblings visited me in Colorado. Zac was always so helpful. He is a good soul. I know he will look fondly upon us all and wish us all the greatest of lives. It was a pleasure to know you Zac. Wishing you safe and happy journeys. 🙂

  228. My sympathies for the family, she left behind. May God help you through the healing process. She was a great lady, I used to stay overnight, at Connie’s House, back in Jr. High, even before then! Barb always made feel welcomed and Jack would make us laugh. My mom and dad will make sure, she is welcome, where she now. Thoughts and prayers, to you all! ❤️😇

  229. Dear Mulhollam Family,

    I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Diane. She was such a bright, beautiful, loving soul. I was lucky enough to get to know her as my aunt Anne sat right across from her office. Every time I came over to visit Anne I got to see and chat with Diane. Oh the stories and how we would laugh! I have great memories of her and will cherish them always.

    Sending prayers your way.

  230. Mulhollam family, so very sorry for your loss. A beautiful soul called home too soon. The only thing I can imagine is that God must have great plans for Diane in Heaven, and needed her there more. I can see her continuing her compassion and caregiving roles to those who need it in Heaven, especially the children. Loving, Mothering, Grandmothering, Mentoring, Befriending all those in need, like she did here with us. A great lady she was. My supervisor for years, but first and foremost, my friend. I will miss her dearly.
    Sincerely,
    Anne

  231. Dear Laurie and the Mulhollam Family
    I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of Diane. I will always remember seeing her bright, smiling face in the halls of Securian for the majority of our careers here. It sounds like she leaves a wonderful legacy with your family. I hope all of your best memories bring you comfort today and in the days ahead
    Kirsten

  232. Mulhollam family, My deepest sympathy to you in the passing of Diane.
    I worked in group claims/underwriting many years ago and Diane was always so kind to me. Especially when my mother passed away! I will never forget her caring heart! May you find comfort and peace in this difficult time!

    Sincerely,
    Kerry Brintz (Securian Financial)

  233. Marian and Ken and family my heart is broke for all
    of you. Your family has been through so much. I thank God for your faith and the strength you glean from it. I don’t know if I would survive all you have and I pray for peace for your family in Jesus name Amen

  234. My thoughts are with Jeremy’s family and friends. I’m so very sorry for your loss.

  235. Dearest Tracee and the entire family you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Your Dad and Mom were such sweet people. Your dad will be missed. Know that he will now be reunited with his beloved Vonnie. Hold your wonderful memories in your heart and never let go. Love to you all, especially you Tracee.

  236. My thoughts and prayers go out to you, JoAnn. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I will always remember the training you provided me when you were retiring from Land O’Lakes, and how pleasant you were. So sorry for your loss of your husband, but know he is without the challenges that Parkinson’s put him through, and he is in a better place now. With my dad having had Parkinson’s as well, I somewhat know how difficult it was at times. Cherish the memories you shared for so many years and may God’s peace bring you comfort in the days to come.

  237. Gerry was a great lover of music. Whenever we would perform at CCH he would be singing every song. I had the opportunity to share rehab with him and many meals with interesting topics. We talked about our past job histories with Andersen Windows and of course our families. Loved his smile and friendship.

  238. Cathy, Lynn, Steve and the rest of the family, I was sad to hear of Uncle Al’s passing. I pray you are all doing as well as possible and looking forward to when we will all be united again.
    I only heard of this about 20 minutes ago so please forgive me for not writing sooner. Love and Blessings to all of you.

  239. There are no words to express the sadness you must have at this time.
    We are praying for everyone during this time of loss.
    May Jeremy rest in peace!

  240. I served with Colin for almost nine years in the USAR, including a 9 month deployment that had us together in an office barely big enough for both of our desks. He had a big heart and cared deeply about the welfare of others. This is a man who once flew a flag in Kuwait in order to send it to a child’s classroom in the States, This is a man who took a stuffed camel on adventures and sent back pictures to those same students, much like the travel gnome, and paid a pet sitter to pamper his beloved kitty while he was deployed.

    Under the mild exterior, was a man with a sharp sense of dark humor and something just shocking enough to make someone laugh.

    I will remember these things, my friend.
    You will be missed.

    We should have been having lunch; not your burial.

  241. I am saddened by the recent loss of Sergeant Colin Drake. I had the privilege of serving alongside him in the United States Army Reserve since 2013. He welcomed me into the unit-as my platoon sergeant- with a warm smile. He was passionate about his career in the army and was a model behavioral health specialist. Showing junior enlisted how to work with individuals suffering from mental illness and substance abuse issues. There is a hole in the heart of our unit- he will be missed dearly.

  242. I am so sorry for your loss. I work at WITC and Colin always had a smile and a hello every time we passed. Even though we didn’t formally meet, I will miss seeing him in the hallways, coming from the study room. Truly a dedicated student. My condolences.

  243. My deepest condolences to the Drake family and friends for the loss of your loved one Colin. In God’s word the Bible is a wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death to be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth by his son Jesus Christ it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time Acts 24:15; John 5: 28,29; Revelation 21: 1-5.

  244. Sunday June 10, 2018 was Eddie’s birthday. He would of been 39 years old. I miss Eddie’s phone calls “Good Morning, Mama. What are you doing today? Are you drinking coffee?” I would say, “yes” and he would reply, “Me too, so I’m drinking coffee with you.” ❤️ I love you, Eddie Don and miss you …. my sweet, kind, funny son. You often said that I was your best friend; you were also one of my best friends as well. I miss your hugs, jokes and you. I’ve changed a lot in some ways and don’t know if I will ever be the same again. No one can take your place and your place
    Is saved just for you. Until we meet again! Love always, Mom

  245. Family,
    Uncle Dip was loved and will be missed. We continue to pray for all of you.
    Byron and Cathy

  246. Our thoughts and prayers are with Stanley’s family at this time. He was always cheerful and loved his bowling. His infectious enthusiasm for that sport will be greatly missed.

  247. I was heart broken to hear that is was her… She was a wonderful person with a big ❤ and could light up a room with her smile. She’s going to be deeply missed. I am also going to be sending lots of prayers to the family as they try to make since of what had happened to this amazing women as they stand by her husbands side as he fights to make a full recovery.

  248. I was really saddened to hear that the world lost such an incredible woman. The first time I met Brenda it was at a National Guard picnic, and with my 2 little kids in tow she took me under her wing. Then we discovered that we both lived in Glenwood City- even though our spouses at the time were in the MN National Guard. That was the beginning of a long friendship; walking together, attending women’s bible studies, bonfires, and so many conversations. Our lives grew apart, but Brenda was the kind of friend that I could’ve called anytime and we would have picked up where we left off. Now I can’t, and I regret that. She was my “go-to” girlfriend for many years. I send my love to her kids. I can’t imagine your loss, but know I have you in my thoughts and prayers.

  249. Norma and Family
    I am going to truly miss you. I enjoyed always seeing you on your cleaning days. We would water all your flowers and then enjoy looking through you “View Finder” I love you Norma. Rest in Paradise Honey.
    Till we meet again!!
    Jordan Polo
    Red Cedar Canyon Housekeeper.

  250. Steve, Catherine and family,
    Our condolences.
    May memories lift you up in the days to come.
    Deb and Zane Bollom

  251. Mr. Jewett, David, Paul, and family-
    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of your wife and mother, Joann. I never met her, but I was a choir student of her husband during my high school years–back in the 70’s. Mr. Jewett was one of my favorite teachers, and feeling that way about him, believe that the love of his life was equally as wonderful a human being. My thoughts and prayers are with you in the days and weeks ahead. May you all feel God’s comfort and peace.

    With warmest sympathy,
    LuAnn (Hauser) Crist

  252. Skip, David, Paul and Family… My heart felt sympathies. Mrs. Jewett was my favorite 3rd Grade teacher. That’s because she WAS my teacher. I had the privilege of teaching with her at East and had many fond memories. The best was sitting with her in the library and going over my report card with her. It was the best Parent/Teacher Conference ever. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  253. Mr. Jewett,
    We would like to express our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
    As I told Phil, you were a great choir director while I was at Jefferson High School, in your choir class.
    May you find comfort in the many happy memories I’m sure you and Joann shared.

    Sincerely,
    Phil and Rosemary Mertens

  254. We are so saddened by Marks passing. He was such a great son and father and will be missed by all. Words can’t express the heart ache we all feel.Sincerely, Dianne and Michael Elavsky

  256. So sorry for the loss of Charles, I live in Mississippi so impossible to be there with the family, but I am thinking of y’all. Prayers for all the families.
    Love y’all, Linda

  257. I met Bert in high school and always admired her; her warm spirit, her passion for the outdoors, and that smile that lit up a room. That is the smile that I will always remember. I also admired her sportsmanship and her ability to exceed in whatever she set out to do. While it seemed she had a competitive spirit, I believe she was only competing against herself, she had the desire to prove to herself she was as good as she was. She didn’t gloat when she won, but boy did that smile of hers shine like a diamond. I am blessed to have known Bert and thank God for her spirit. My prayers, love and sympathies to all of her family.

  258. Please accept my sincere sympathy. I was your hairdresser when you lived in New Ulm. Take care.

  259. I’m shocked and so very sad to read this. I worked with and knew Lana for years at 3M when I worked on trade shows for my division years ago. She was a sweet, sweet woman who knew how to get things done. My deepest sympathy to her son and family.

  260. Robert Was a great person. I talked to her often Via internet and a occasional visit. She loved her family and being outdoors. She will be missed by all . I will never forget her. till we meet again . jim.

  261. Jay was a wonderful man and friend he will be missed your family is in our thoughts and prayers may God bless

  262. I am so sorry for your loss. Fran is one of the people who make Hudson a beautiful place to be. She had a heart like an angel and just made you feel good when you saw her.

  263. My thoughts and prayers go out to Tyler’s wife Ali, his sons, his family and friends. I went to high school with Tyler and he was always such a kind person. It is so heartbreaking to hear that such a wonderful man’s life ended at such a young age. Praying for strength and comfort for his family and friends. Rest In Peace Tyler!

    Sincerely,
    Kristen (Przybylski) Svendsen

  264. Ali –

    My heart breaks for you and your family over the news of your incredible loss. There are absolutely no words that can be said to truly bring comfort and for that, I am sorry. My heart and thoughts are with you during this time. May you be surrounded by the love of family and friends as you move throughout these next days. May love and comfort be with you.

    Amy

  265. Can’t even express how sad this makes us. I’m not sure if I ever met him, Gene probably had. Just reading about him, I can see how much he was loved and gave love. All I can think is God had a greater need of his quulaloties and qualifications then those of his family on earth…as unfair as that is. I’m glad his wife and kids have the strength of loving families to help them and LOTS of great male role models to help fill his absence in the kids lives.

  266. I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know him and his family, but he sounds like a wonderful, caring, giving person.

    Hold on to the good and beautiful memories and remember… Love Never Ends!

  267. Ali,
    There are no words I can say to change the reality of your pain but may you be surrounded by the love of God and your family.
    I pray that you feel God’s presence in this dark hour.
    Linda Goeppinger

  268. Sorry, For your loss Tracy and Tony! Prayers! The hearts of the Homeless who Tyler helped will pray for him!

  269. I am so very very sorry for your loss. It sounds like Tyler was a wonderful son, husband, and father. Sending many prayers to you all.

  270. I wish there was something I could say to make the loss of Tyler’s life a little less painful. I can not begin to imagine your loss. What I have seen shows howdeeply thought of he was. That is an incredible gift to you, as his parents Tracy and Tony. You did good raising him, and he explored those teachings to encompass them into his life and make this wonderful person, man, husband, and father. God bless all of you during this time. I will be praying for all of you.

  271. Tyler was always such a great guy in high school!!! I am extremely sad and heartbroken for such a young good soul to leave this earth too early. My heart goes out to all of his family and his children! Rest in peace Tyler!

  272. There are no words to take away the pain from all who are suffering the loss of this amazing young man!~ My deepest sympathy to Ali, Liji, Amos and his parents Tracy and Tony. My heart is breaking for all of you – Prayers, love and hugs to you all!

  273. Ali, Elijah, and Amos,
    I wish there were better words to express how incredibly sorry I am for your loss. It’s clear that the whole Hudson community knew how great of a man Tyler was, and he will be missed by many.
    I look back at that short, but recent time you guys lived by my mom’s, and it always made me smile when I drove by and saw Tyler’s truck out front, and was even better when I was walking the block with one of my kids, and got a chance to catch up with Tyler, and let our kids play for a while. He truly beamed with love for those boys! You could see it in the twinkle of his eyes, and hear the joy in his voice.
    Please don’t hesitate to ask for whatever you need from me or anyone, any who knew Tyler, or even heard of him would be more than happy to make this time easier. I wish we could wake you up from this nightmare, as death truly sucks….which is an incrediable understatement!

  274. This is a tribute to Dan the man. I remember when I was a little kid I used to hide behind his lazyboy chair and kick it repeatedly. He never minded much. One of the best memories from my childhood was when he and auntie linda took me to the MN state fair and he played billiards to win me a giant stuffed Clifford the red dog. I didn’t know he was so good at shooting pool. On the car ride home I still remember holding it out the window and shaking it to distract other drivers and he and Linda were laughing histeterichally as other drivers honked at us. You will be missed. Rest In Peace uncle Dan.

  275. Shelby was a classmate of mine. I remember her, fondly. She was a very independent, strong woman and and so smart. She was good friends with our other classmate and friend, Kathy Krizan Ofstie, and they loved playing pool together. I’ll never forget Shelby, her warm personality and those dimples! Rest in peace old friend.

  276. To my sister Linda and to Dan’s parents and siblings: Dan’s passing is heart-felt. Hang in there. Dan obviously worked hard all of his life and lived life to the fullest! I will always continue to admire him for that. What a nice picture of Dan the Man and what a nice obituary!
    -Rick Bubnash, Great Falls, Montana

  277. Uncle Dan, I still can’t believe you’re no longer with us. Ever since you came into our lives as kids there has never been a dull moment. I am truly going to miss your crazy stories at holiday dinners, our trips to the state fair, and your never-ending joy for life. Thank you for patiently teaching me to knee-board, how to properly roast a hot dog on a campfire, and to never be afraid to take risks in life. We all miss you, and I hope you are still riding around on your Harley up there. ❤️

  278. I will never forget my dearest Uncle Ol’ Blue Eyes. You have never seen such crystal blues with a smile that lights up the room. When Uncle Dan was around, he always put me at ease with his endearing laugh and calm nature. My favorite part of our family holidays was listening to Uncle Dan’s stories; he was an old-school, straight-shooter who always “tells it like it is”. His genuine, honest spirit I will forever admire. A humble, hard-working man, Dan had many hidden talents and life wisdom. He would reminiscence about his childhood days when he became a smashingly successful trumpet player. Uncle Dan even played in a band with the great Miles Davis. Anytime I hear a trumpet play, I think of my Uncle Dan and his passion for life and music. Like me, Uncle Dan longed to live on a beach. I know he is finally on his beach now looking down on us; he will forever be missed.

  279. My family was never able to visit Grandpa Jack as often as we’d liked to, but when we went, it was always a memorable time. In younger times, I remember walking through his wonderland of woods. During the summers when we visited, my little brother and I climbed giant oak trees, ran through the woods, and explored every nook and cranny of his land. There was always something to do in the woods at Grandpa Jack’s. I will forever remember Grandpa Jack as interesting and as vivacious as his woods.

    Through the years, I’ve learned many things from him. One summer, when I was around 12 or 13, my dad took the family up to see Grandpa Jack. There, he set out a trap for a pesky raccoon he had been complaining about rummaging through his property and trash. The next day, we checked the trap to find a raccoon stuck inside. He handed me a pellet rifle and instructed me to put a single round into the raccoon to put it out of its misery. Now, I had practiced with rifles on his land before, but I’d never shot at a live target. I took the heavy rifle and aimed at the raccoon. It was scared and desperately trying to free its damaged paw from the mechanism in the confinement. I fired round after round into the cage, each time hitting, but not ending its life. With each consecutive round, I became more panicked and desperate to put the animal out of its misery. I must have fired 7 rounds into the raccoon before it finally succumbed. In this one act, my grandpa taught me the importance of responsibility for my actions, the importance of being deliberation in action, and the importance of life. I will forever remember my Grandpa Jack as a teacher.

    In all of the summer trips, fish fry dinners, and family reunions, I noticed a strong connection between Grandpa and all of his kids and grandchildren, I see it in the way my father looks up to him and admires him. I see it in the way my uncles’ eyes light up when they tell a story about him for the hundredth time. I see it in the way they love and respect him. I see it in the how he always provided a warm home to my family, I see it when we catch eye contact, and he returns a wink and a smile at me.
    I will forever remember my Grandpa Jack as a good man.

    From his quiet smirk to his wide grin, I knew my grandpa loved life. In this, his teaching and mentor-ship are evident in the way my relatives respect him, the way I respect his sons, and the way my dad tries to be the best father he can, from the experiences he has taken from his father. I will remember John Jack Martin in how I teach my future children and I how I treat future people. The lessons he’s taught me about god, about family, and about life are among those forever instilled within me.

    -You’re in a better place now

  280. Jim and family,
    I remember Jean as a quiet gentle person and fun to visit with at our Wilson staff parties. I still have her recipe for lemon meringue dessert..John really loved that.!
    You will have many good memories to keep in your heart!
    You are in our prayers,
    Dari and John Nielsen

  281. Jim and family, I’m sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. I hope you and the rest of your family are doing well.
    Gerry Meyers

  282. My sympathy to her family.
    I am just a silly student in her English class at Marshall Junior High.
    Miss Goldsmith was a very classy lady with great class control, but I made her laugh. This was all in 1962. I remember how happy she was for her upcoming marriage and how we all chipped in to by her a vase( I think) from Ernie Rost store! She seemed so pleased. Glad she married one of Janesvilles finest teachers, Jim Sharer.

    John Bontly

  283. Fran will always hold a special place in my heart. She always had a kind word for me and her smile was Infectious. I consider myself blessed to have know her.
    Bill and I would like to send our Condolences to the entire Family.

  284. I am so sorry for your loss Sarah. Even though I never personally met John, I felt like I knew him just from all the conversations and stories you would share with me during our hair appointments together. If there is anything you need …please do not hesitate to ask!

  285. We are saddened at the family’s loss of such a joy-filled sister, mother, grandmother, our cousin. Her heart belonged to the Lord. May her faith and the beautiful and fun memories she gave to all who knew her give joy and peace.

  286. My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. May the “…Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort…” be with you during this sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) (Psalm 83:18)

  287. Nancy, Margaret Ann and I loved popcorn in bed. We were gigglers especially at midnight. Margaret Ann loved the Lord and gave all of the women in her church a CD of her aunt, my mother, playing the piano. She loved her family

  288. Dearest Mary Ann and family, my heart is breaking for you all at this sad time. This is the first I’ve heard of Teri even being ill. Always remember the good times and know that she is in a better place. Sending hugs and prayers to you all! Fly High Teri!! It was my pleasure being your babysitter so many years ago!!

  289. Megan, Charlie and Lori, and Kevin and family, your mother was a wonderful woman! She gave of herself freely. I am sure that your dad was standing at Heavens Gates with wide open arms. I know that she will be dearly missed by you. Praying for peace and comfort.

  290. I will remember Margaret for her ready smile and hug. I appreciate the joy she shared, and her love of her family.

  291. Almost every time I met John he was either helping me or helping someone else, which in itself says a lot about who John was.

    As I struggle for words, I came across this quote from Martin Luther King Jr. that reminded me of John.

    “Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know about Plato and Aristotle… (or) Einstein’s Theory of Relativity … (or) the Second Theory of Thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

    John was a rare individual. Not only was he an intelligent man, but he was a kindhearted, loving soul with a willingness to help others. John was a great man. He served his community well and will be deeply missed by his friends and family.

  292. So sorry to hear of Teri’s passing! Remember her well when we were neighbors growing up in Watson! Thoughts and prayers to her entire family!

  293. Jim, Julie, Jim and extended family,
    So sorry for your loss. Know you have many great memories. Enjoyed our many conversations at Jane’s family gatherings.
    May she rest in peace.
    Love, Ken and Peg

  294. Dear Jim, Julie and Janie and families,
    I am so sorry to hear of Jean’s death. May God grant you comfort and peace. Soany wonderful memories of living across the street from you, and the wonderful years of watching our girls growing up together.
    With love and prayers,
    Madelyn

  295. Jim, you and your family have our sincere sympathy. Good-byes are so hard. I know Jean is fully restored, wrapped in the arms of our Lord. Blessings to all of you at this difficult time.

  296. Jennifer, Jill and Derrick,
    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom and Grandma’s passing. She was quite the character ! I remember one time I couldn’t help but smile while listening to you girls trying to convince her of something ( the subject escapes me now ) and she would have none of it ! She knew her mind and I always admired that.
    My thoughts, fun memories, and prayers are with you all.
    God Bless, Fran

  297. Thank-you so much for sending this beautiful tribute, Jennifer. I have been thinking of you all ever since I got the news. Your mom was such a sweet, gentle soul… I always enjoyed visiting with her. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  298. I am so grateful for all of the time my family and I got to spend with Mary over the years. She always lit up the place when she was around… always smiling. In our conversations she was always so kind and caring. We will miss her deeply. All our love to Johnny and the rest of her wonderful legacy.

  299. Deborah, John & Sarah,

    I’m heartbroken over the death of your Mom. Her smile & lilting voice will always be in my heart. Peace & love to all of you.

  300. Mrs. Johnson was my favorite teacher in junior high in the late 1960’s. She encouraged all my creative writing, even when it didn’t meet the “letter of the law,” as far as the assignment went. She was one of the most positive influences in my educational development, and in my path to a career in environmental education.

    My sympathies to the family.

  301. John and family – so sorry to hear of your loss. Wish you all peace and comfort in the days ahead as you reflect on her memory and the great gift she was in your lives.

    With Sincerest Thoughts and Prayers,

  302. John and family I am sorry your Mom has passed, but also thankful she is now at peace in her eternal life. I wish you peace and you have my prayers as you pass through this difficult time. John, lean on your music and your friends.

  303. I am very sad to see this. Mike was not only skilled at his job, but also a truly nice person. I’ll always remember his installing our hardwood kitchen floor (beautifully!); and conversations we had. Our condolences to his family. Gone too soon….

  304. Al, Megan and I were so very sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

  305. Dear Loraine and Family,
    We send our thoughts and prayers and prayers to you and your family during this difficult time. We always enjoyed visiting you in your home in Hudson and we remember the time we met in Arizona. You and Bob were great hosts and fun to be with..

    May he rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon him.
    Mary Ellen DeNucci and Irene (Danielson) DeNucci

  306. What a wonderful man who lived an incredible life. He is leaving a legacy that will be remembered for many years
    Bob found the perfect wife and fathered three wonderful kids. He had a great career contributing a great deal to the community and to his many many friends. There are few people I have known who were so good and nice that I couldn’t imagine anyone not liking them.[ my Sister in law marilyn was the only other one that I can think of.

    Well Bob is gone, but we have memories, memories are wonderful things you can visit them any time of the day or night, and they are always of good things. As i sit in front of my computer the memories are filling my mind, I remember visiting the root beer stand , that is where I first met Bob, I remember the Star observer at the end of the bridge, the stories of his career with the refinery and the Erickson clan, the beautiful home he and Lorraine built, not a blade of grass out of place, the projects he built that I wished I could do.
    The DEER Camp, he fed us so well and always was ready to share his Hudson Bay, He was admired as an INSTITUTION by that august group.
    When you needed the community ladder you just called Bob, Jack Martin always claimed that he owned half of the ladder and bob only stored it for him.

    I remember the Thursday golf group, I can see them sitting around the table in the bar setting the afternoon wagers.
    My most recent memory was stopping to see he and Lorraine in their new apartment, Nancy and IO were treated to wine and some very wonderful conversation. Memories are great and I look forward to reliving more of them with this about this wonderful friend. hey

  307. Lowe Family –
    So sorry to hear to Tom’s passing. You are in our thoughts.
    Scott Schorn and family

  308. Dear Bev, and family,
    It was a shock to read about Tom’s death! I am so sorry and want to extend my sympathy to you and the girls. I have many fond memories of playing in RFHS band with Tom…and all the laughs and giggles.
    Memories go way back to the College Campus School, where Tom was an outstanding student and had a great singing voice; H.M. S. Pinafore comes to mind.
    I was surprised to see that Tom and I had a birthday in common, 9/22, except that my year is different.
    Fondly,
    Ellen (Morrow) Mattson (Class of 1947)

  309. Carol, we are so sorry to hear if Paul’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Ashley (Nelson) Ronayne

  311. Carol and Joe – This is Bev Brown (now) Nuessmeier – I have lived in Hudson since 1960 -I remember Joe blowing that trombone in band when I was in the SV band….sorry to hear about your mom Carol. You lived over by the Reed School didn’t you? We knew Margaret Hendrickson, your aunt, (our neighbor) and went to East Hill School with her children, quite well. My folks both died so young (both 58) and you were so lucky to have your mom so long. God Bless……Bev

  312. A life well lived!! We are glad to have known a
    fine man, remembered as the best manager
    at our Ashland Petroleum sales office.

    God Bless!
    Dianna Burgette Ross

  313. Bob & Lorraine have been among a small handful of my parents’ dearest and most-tenured friends. My memories of Bob, from my childhood right through to our last interaction this past January, are of a consistently positive, generous, kind, good-humored, and thoughtful gentleman. Our world is smaller for this loss. Blessings and wishes for warm memories to Lorraine, Caroline, Nancy and John.

  314. We are sad to hear about Paul’s passing. It seemed to happen so fast and we are so sorry for your family’s loss. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely,
    Lisa, Tom, Taylor, Nick Smith

  315. Atef was like the Bible told us in Matthew 18:3( and Jesus says,”Assuredly, I say to you, unless you change and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven “)
    I have to know Atef as a cousin back when I was teenager , he like to talk , kept his smile and nice sense of humor! Unfortunately, after immigration distances kept us away from seeing each other but I have been always checking on his health and spoke with him few months ago and still remember the old memories during teenage time back home.
    Rest In Peace Atef and remember us when you are in heaven.

  316. I was so sad to hear of Bob’s passing he was such a wonderful man. I volunteered with him at Hudson hospital and he was always such a bright light with his beautiful smile and great sense of humor. My prayers are with Lorraine and family. Rest In Peace Bob.

    Pat Niccum

  317. We are so sorry to hear this news. We were neighbors of Jake for many years in Vadnais Heights. He was a kind, gentle soul. I will fondly remember our driveway chats. He adored his family and spoke so highly of his siblings and loved ones. We are so sorry for your loss.

  318. I remember Penny from school, we had good laughs in the lunch room. I know Bruce. And so sorry for the loss of Penny.

  319. Yacoub families, I am so sorry to hear of Atefs’ passing, he had such a gentle presence. I always enjoyed talking to him at birthday parties. May his memory be eternal.

  320. Bob and Loraine are two of the finest people Carolyn and I ever knew. I am proud to have known Bob and to call him a friend. We extend our deepest sympath to the family and wish them the best. Rest In Peace my friend.

  321. It was always a pleasure to see you at the golf course. You were one of the people that when looking out at the lot of the old course window, that I knew would brighten my day!
    Play well Mr. McGrew:)
    Tom

  322. Mark and I offer condolences and prayers to the family.
    Bob has gone home, but he lives on through his family.
    Rest in peace, God bless.

  323. Bob: You are missed terribly. But, you were a great role model for both me & Anne-Marie. We are especially happy to have known you & Lorraine. And even happier to know you got to see Grampa Lew’s work at the Red Wing pottery.
    Thank you for your service in the Navy & years of volunteering at the hospital. Always meeting people with smiles & your caring heart. May you rest in peace. You have more than earned it!

  332. Many good memories at the farm. Will never forget you Tillie. Love you always. You showed us all much love in many ways. Tell Tom hi .

  333. Dave was much much more than a close friend. He was family. Truman and Dave were more like brothers in so many ways, in how well they worked together, helped each other, and in their companionship. They knew each other better than most, and enjoyed a unique, very special “once in a lifetime” kind of friendship.

    Dave, we love you dearly and grieve for you. You will be cherished in our hearts forever.

    Tru and Deb

  334. R.I.P. Gordy Gilbs, you will be sorely missed, you sardonic sense of humor and quick wit can never be replicated, love you bro, forever and always

    Bill and Vonnie

  337. Carol and family I am deeply saddened for you all. My heart breaks for you and Paul will be forever in my heart. What a kind, dear man. Much love to you all.

    You are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

    Jay and Karen Schmechel

  339. All of my thoughts and prayers to Debbie’s children and family. I worked with Debbie since 2009. She was an inspiration to many. Always had a positive attitude and kept her spirits up. What I loved most about Debbie was her faith in our Lord. She taught me much and she will be greatly missed. She is in a beautiful everlasting, eternal life now with Jesus.

  340. To the Schiltgens,

    I am so sorry to hear this news. I had a nice chat with Maxine at my own mom’s funeral just a few weeks ago. I feel lucky to have known her and I have many great memories of her and with her and all of you.

  343. I worked with Bill in Menomonie 3m.He was a wonderful supervisor. I had a interview for a job with him and I came in and sat down.I told him I was a very quiet person and would sit and listen.He laughed and said you know this is your job interview and not his.Love to you and your family.

  344. Sweet Akers family, you were my favorite neighbors in Sebastopol, CA. Some of my best memories are of spending time with you. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. Bill always had a smile that warmed the heart. He was always calm even in the midst of chaos and angry bees. Even a sting to the nose didn’t dim his smile. My wish for you is that the hole his passing leaves in your hearts be filled with the memories of a life well lived.

    Marceen Pfaff

  345. To Ann and Laura and Steven,
    My heart is with you all.
    My memories of Bill include a perpetual smile, always a warm and opening presence and a talent for keeping the boys entertained! From that awesome clubhouse he built with the gliding rope swing to the obstacle courses for battles. He was always so present for his children and I know my son, Nick, benefited from growing up in his company. He gave so much to this world. I am so sorry for your loss.

  346. I wa so surprised, shocked to read about Helen. She and my mother (Harriet Christianson) were close buddies. I met Helen through my mother and we quickly connected. She was so much fun, so interesting to talk to. I had lunch with Helen, Audrey, and Marlene late in Novemeber. We had fun sharing memories of my Mom and of their memories of life before Wintergreen. Each of those ladies was full of life and wonderful stories. I will miss talking to Helen and miss her emails. I will treasure the little cards she had sent me, all stitiched with those little arthritic hands. A dear sweet lady.

    My deepest sympathy, love and prayers to all of you.
    Kay

  347. Love you so much Kay. You will always be my big sister. You always had the biggest heart and the most loving.

  348. Ann, Laura and Stephen, my heart is hurting for your heartbreak. Let the tears you shed stand witness to your love for your husband and father and to the depth of your thanksgiving for the gift of his life.

    Eternal Rest Grant Unto Bill O’ Lord. And Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Him. May He Rest In Peace.

    “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” -Psalm 34:18

    Much Love and Many Prayers.

  349. I had the honor of knowing Billy through my brother in law Paul Rose.
    What an awesome, kind, personable, and good hearted person Billy was.
    Thank you Paul Rose for bringing him into our lives.
    Pete Kijinski Sr.

  350. I will miss Helens smile. I was one of the Sunday church leaders from the Methodist Church. It was always so nice seeing Harriet Christensen and her come to services. I visited with her many times.
    Harriet

  351. Our condolences to the family on Margaret’s passing. She was a wonderful lady and special friend to my mom, Mugs Zillmann, when both resided at Wintergreen. They are now together in heaven.
    R.I.P Margaret.

  352. After spending my youth in the same church with Dan and his sisters…I was shocked by this news of Dan’s passing and can’t believe I never knew he was living just down the road from me in Roberts. My heartfelt condolences to the entire Krogseng family. From all I have read, it seems as though Dan had quite an impact in his community and was blessed with a beautiful family. My prayers go out to them and the entire family.

  353. Heaven got an awesome fun lady. We enjoyed spending time with her whether it was having lunches or playing cards. Will always think of her fondly. Bless her heart and soul.

  354. Isaiah and Family,
    I am so deeply sorry for your loss and the terrible heart break you all must be feeling right now. Please except my condolences and know that my family and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

  355. Even though it has been years since I last saw/spoke with Dan, I always thought of him as an incredibly nice guy. From the obituary, I can tell he never changed. I am so very sorry for his family’s loss. I know you all are incredibly close and he will be deeply missed. You all are in my heart and prayers. My hope is together you will find the strength to get through this difficult time. Love to all, Dawn

  356. Dear Danny’s Family.
    I am at a loss for words. Danny has been a long time inspiration to me and a person I can call a true friend. As we grew older and took different paths we still found time to stay connected. We would talk about guitars plus some other things, but most importantly about how proud we were of our families. Danny will always will be a very proud family man and a great friend. I will always cherish the fun and crazy things we did together. My heart goes out to you all.

  357. My sympathies go out to the family of mike although I have never met them in person I had talked with mike about his family on the tail gate of our trucks. I only got to work with him for s few years now but a great guy and will miss him on our job sites. Jeff howe construction in siren

  358. Diane I am so sorry this is still so unbelieveable when Greg told me of Dan’s death my heart hurt for you first and foremost I hope the love and support of the beautiful family you have helps during this difficult time.

    Lora and Bryan Bierbrauer

  361. There really no words to express how sorry we are to hear about Mike’s passing. After working together so many years we think of him more as a friend than a business associate. He was dependable, fair, caring and always left you with a smile. He will be missed. May love bring you comfort and time bring you peace. Dan and Karen

  370. Peggy was a truly wonderful person! She let me boss Bernard around when I was his town clerk! She always had a beautiful smile. I am so sorry I am living in Texas and cannot make her funeral. She and the family are in my prayers! I loved Peg! Rita Horne

  371. We all are so saddened bye the loss of such an outstanding Father, husband, son, brother, nephew and cousin. May almighty God give us all the strength to get through these difficult times. He will be missed by us all. We love you all !!!

  372. What a beautiful lady in every way. When I think of her the word gracious comes to mind. Obituary painted a picture of what a special lady she was.

  373. Maggie and your entire family- our condolences to all of you during this difficult time, I only met your Mother a few times “off campus” when she would be out stopping in at the HSO office or when I dropped the girls off at the “Sno-Park” (notice I remember how you spell that!). What a fabulous lady, even more so after reading her amazing life story.

    God Bless!

    “Blondie”

  374. Maggie, Katie and all of the Kinney family,

  377. Tom was Mayor when I first started working for the City of Hudson. Tom was also supportive of the Clerk’s office and had the welfare of the City at heart. It was my pleasure to have known Tom not only as Mayor but as a role model. Rest in peace Tom. It was a privilege to have known Tom during my lifetime.

  378. We know you are resting in peace, and yes, it’s too soon, for all of us left behind. May all of your family and friends find solace by grieving together and remembering you with smiles and tears on our faces, laughter in the air and love in our hearts.

  379. We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Leanne’ s Dad. Leanne, John a d family you are in our hearts and prayers. Sally and Lance Hermann

  380. Jeanne,
    Mark and I offer our most sincere condolences to you at this difficult time. We will keep you in our prayers.
    Mark&Karen

  381. We are glad we got to know and spend time with Tom. He was a pleasure to be around and will be missed. You could always count on him for a laugh when we visited. A personal memory of mine, Tom would make our trips to the gun range a great experience with several calibers and configurations to choose from. He loved to sling some lead down range. I am sad that we will not be able to make the services. You are all in our hearts and we are sending virtual hugs.
    Love Joe, Kris, Eric, Alex, Grace and Damian.

  382. I just saw this today. There are many memories with the Boumeester clan. I’m sorry for your loss. Bob

  383. I am so sorry for you loss and pray the happy memories soon override the sad ones! Tom was a wonderful man and I am glad I got to know him! I will miss hearing his voice in our calls! Love always, cousin Dawn

  384. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of Arthur. Please read God’s wonderful promise for the loved ones we have lost in death to be fulfilled very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth by his son Jesus Christ it will give you hope and comfort during this difficult time John 5:28,29; Revelation 21: 1-5.

  385. Please accept my condolences as you mourn the loss of your dear Arthur. Be assured that not only is almighty God keenly aware of your plight, he will indeed remedy all suffering on earth including death, as this video link clearly shows:

  386. Nate, my sympathies to you and your family. It sounds like your grandpa was full of life and fun. Kathy

  387. She had angels in her early life, to boost that inner strength and fierce determination to overcome the time, place, and circumstances of her birth. During summers on the Larkins farm, Grandma L taught her the essential non-school lessons that became building blocks for her strongest values. Donna and a handful of other high school girlfriends included and accepted her. And that guy who sat behind her in junior year history class: he listened to her dreams with an open heart, believed in her, respected her, loved her, and cared for her—her best angel, for 75 years. And after decades of ensuring women looked and FELT their best on important life occasions, she now expertly creates and mends angels’ wings.

  388. Todd and family our prayers are with you. May your memories lift you up on the coming days.
    Deb and Zane Bollom

  389. So sorry for the loss to the whole Anderson family. I grew up with John and Jim, played hockey, got into trouble, and had the sweetest fort in their garage rafters where we spent countless hours. John was a natural hockey player with God given talent and always wondered what he could have done with that. Know that he is in the right place, and will guide you through your journey’s going forward. Rest in Peace John!

  390. Always a gentlemen and loving father / grandfather.

    I will always remember the times we had deer hunting and “up north” as a child and young man.

    My life was enriched by his kindness and wisdom

    RIP Uncle Art…

  391. My deepest love to Micki, Candy, Todd and Corey on the loss of their great husband and father. We all knew Chick as an affable and exceedingly kind fellow who worked diligently at Zillmann’s for all of those many years, married to the most wonderful woman in Micki; but, I was able to see up close and personal beneath the veneer of the man, into his heart and soul. I believe it was the summer of 1972 when my family was without a place to live for many months. Showing the ultimate demonstration of love for friends in need, the Places offered for us to come and live with them while we were without a home. Who would do that? Now that I am a sixty one year old man with a family of my own, I’m nearly astounded when I reflect on that most generous showing of support to my family. The entire Place family treated us with great respect and consideration during our plight; and never complained about us infringing upon their space and imposing on their lives.
    God rest your soul, dear friend. I know that you are already looking down on us from your rightfully-deserved place in heaven.
    Much love to all,
    Garry Landowski
    Houston, Texas

  392. I am so very sorry for your loss, Micki and family. I pray your special memories will be a comfort to you. God Bless you all.

  393. When I moved to Hudson many years ago, one of the first people I looked forward to meeting was Bill, the stories and his reputation preceded him and he did not disappoint. He lived up to his most appropriate nick name without question. Bill was bigger than life itself always smiling and bringing cheer to those whom he came into contact with. He leaves a tremendous legacy of family, friends, and loved ones. He will live on in a happier place and be remembered by all. God Bless rest in peace. Thoughts and prayers for family members who all loved Bill so much.

  394. Jeanie and family,
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    May your memories lift you up in the days to come.
    Blessings
    Zane and Deb

  395. May you finally be at peace and pain free. Uncle Bill you were like non other. You will be missed by many. Prayers and sympathy to you Aunt Jeanne, Don, Larry, Jimmy and Suzie.

  396. So many fun memories of my uncle Bill growing up – whenever he was around there was so much laughter – especially when he’d take his teeth out and try to scare us kids! My heart and my love goes out to his wife, my aunt Jeanne and my cousins Donny, Larry, Jimmy and Suzie and all their children. Take comfort in knowing my dad, Tom is there with him and I’m sure they are pulling some sort of shenanigans in heaven!

  397. Aunt Ruth was a wonderful mother and wife. I remember spending time at “the farm” visiting Grandma and Grandpa during the summers. She was always up for another child to join all of hers for dinner and sleepovers! My fondest memories as a child were spent with all my cousins, Aunt Ruth and Uncle Jim.

    Bob and I were able to meet them for dinner in Arizona numerous times as adults. I will always cherish the memories of them. My sympathy to all of you, Kit, Jodi, Carrie and James. May your memories sustain you through your sadness. Love, Kim

  398. My first husband, Sonny Pankow would not let anyone but Gordy work on his vehicles….it was like Gordy “walked on water to him”. Sonny was so particular with his cars, I can’t remember all the times we drove from Hudson to Zillmans just so Gordy could work on them….and if he was busy and he had someone else do it, maybe even Todd…Sonny would be sure he knew what to do. Sonny died in 1997 after spending 17 years at Christian Community Home in Hudson. My condolences to you all. I also worked at the Hudson School with Shirley. Bev Nuessmeier

  399. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. John was such a trooper and a fighter through all the physical plagues he endured. My fondest memories of him are being up at the cabin and watching him tinker on a tractor, truck, lawnmower or whatever needed a tune up at the time. He was an incredibly intelligent man who had a humble heart and loved the outdoors. I learned so much about how to survive in the woods from John and Sam. It saddens my heart that his spirit is gone from this world, but I know he is finally at peace and pain-free. Blessings to you all and I will be in continuous prayer for you. We miss you already Papa John.

  400. We didn’t know Bill, but we highly esteem his younger brother, Jeff and family. But for all who mourn his loss, we offer these words:

    And so the number of saints above is increased by one, leaving behind an empty space that will never be filled except through the gift of memory. We celebrate with you Bill’s life and the many lives he touched.

    May you miss him deeply, forgive him often, and always claim the best of him in you. Our sympathies, thoughts, and prayers remain with you in your grief even as you reflect on the promises of God to provide a reunion in heaven.

    Liz and Dan Bruch

  401. My deepest condolences to the family and friends of John. When Jesus Christ was here on Earth he performed all sorts of astounding miracles. Jesus Christ cured some of the people from whatever diseases and infirmities they had Matthew 9:35. Jesus Christ also brought back to life some of the people that had fallen asleep in death one of them was his friend Lazarus that had been dead for 4 days John 11: 11-44. These astounding miracles that Jesus performed while he was here on Earth is a foreshadow of what will take place very soon right here on a brand new Paradise Earth under his kingdom rule Daniel 2:44 that he taught his followers to pray to come in the Lord’s Prayer Matthew 6:10 no more sickness pain or death Life Without End Revelation 21:1-5.

  402. Charlie,
    We will miss you every single day and love you forever. We will carry you in our hearts, always.

    Troy, Michelle, and Max,
    There is nothing we can say, but we love you very much and are here for you always.

    ♡Aimee, Sydney, & Jeremy

  403. John was a great brother! He would take me with him on many fun adventures as a kid and an adult. We made wonderful memories hunting and fishing together at “the cabin.”
    He was such a smart man. John could figure out how to fix anything.
    I will miss him so much.
    Sorry for your loss Diane, Erica, Holly and Eydie.

  404. Troy and Michelle, I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that you find peace and healing during this very difficult time. God is good, even when we don’t understand it.
    Take care
    Tom and Tamara

  405. Dear Barb and family,
    I am so sorry to learn of Ken’s passing. May God bring you peace and many happy memories. Barb Lewerer

  406. RIP Uncle Glen. I’m sorry I never got back there to fish with you.

  407. We shared so many wonderful times together with Bev, Doug, Robin & the Torgerson Family, the most recent being Christmas Day, 2017. A rather riotous Christmas Day and dinner filled with laughter and memorable stories. We are blessed to be embraced as members of Bev’s extended family of extries!! We rejoice in the beauty of her life.

  408. I remember Mrs. Torgerson well from my days living in the “Highlands” and being friends with her daughter Kathy. I had the pleasure of seeing Mrs. Torgerson every day when I worked at Highlands School on summers home from college. Mrs. Torgerson was a very sweet, kind, loving person. My thought and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time. Rest in peace Mrs. Torgerson. You will be missed by many. xo

  409. Mr. Torgerson and my Dad both worked for 3M and that’s how we first got to know the family. When they moved into the neighborhood, Mrs. Torgerson was a member of the same woman’s groups my Mom was and they were good friends. The Oldest daughter Kathy and I went to school together through high school. There’s something about being from “THE HIGHLANDS” and being a “Highlands Parent” or “kid”. I Imagine that Mrs Torgerson is sitting at the table with a lot of the Highlands Moms that have gone before and the “Bitch and Stitch Club” is welcoming their newest member! The lady knew how to wear fashion on a salesman’s budget! She was one of a kind!

  410. Dear Kathy,

    My thoughts are with you and your family as you mourn the passing of your mother. I think our parents’ generation is leaving us with a wonderful legacy of the importance of family, loving homes, and tradition. Will be keeping you in my prayers and thoughts.

    Nancy Meyer

  411. Bev Torgerson was unforgettable — talented and determined. Thinking of you all and remembering the house in the Highlands.

  412. As I sit here blurry eyed thinking of my Uncle Glen I think about how much he liked to fish. Just about every time I go fishing I think about how my brother Jack and I must of recieved the fishing gene from my uncles on both sides of our family. Our dad used take us fishing but he wasn’t passionate about it. He rarely fished after we got old enough to go on our own. One memory that is etched in my mind is when I was about 12 years old and we had driven the 500 + miles from Michigan to Baldwin and it was getting dark and we were getting close to my grandparents farm we came around a corner and there were 2 fishermen by a bridge putting there gear away when my mom says ” that’s Glen and Everett” . We stopped to talk to them. I asked if they caught any ? Well Glen opened his creel and showed me his Trout. Wow! I had never seen Trout that big! From that day on I thought of my uncles as fishing legends. RIP Uncle Glen

  413. With extreme regret hearing of Sandy’s death at such a young age.
    Hadn’t seen her since we were both much younger, but always kept track of here through my Mom, Arlene Quarderer and her Mom Velma Lindow.
    My sincere sympathy to her Mother, husband and children.

    Cousin Kathleen Quarderer Maciejewski

  414. Bev was such a wonderful lady. I always enjoying visiting with her about her sewing projects, among other things. She once made a navy crepe sheath dress with a flowing navy chiffon scarf down the back for me to wear as a bridesmaid in my sister-in-law’s wedding – it was beautifully constructed and fit perfectly, and the fittings were so much fun! My sympathies to the whole family.

  415. We loved her smile. She befriended me when we first moved to Hudson. Loved her beautiful hats.

  416. Barb and Family – We are so sad to hear of Ken’s passing. Our hearts and prayers are with you. We know this has been a really difficult time and pray for peace for your hearts and rest for your selves.

    LuAnne and Paul Larson

  417. We lost a wonderful lady & dear friend. She left us with many memories to hold on to. The world seems a little dimmer without her. All our thoughts and prayers to her family whom she loved
    so much.
    Rest in Peace, dear friend. Say hi to Tom.
    All our love, Dick & Jane Gosselin

  418. My sincere condolences to all of Nancy’s family and relatives. She was a wonderful person. Praying for all for peace and heart healing.

  419. dodinsky – Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said “i’m here for you” and proved it.

    ABBY, JESSIE, CUDD FAMILY …. A TRUE SPIRIT. THE CREATOR & THE, OL’ FLAME ‘BOB’ WERE AWAITING. THOUGHTS BE WITH YOU ALL THIS START OF JANUARY 2018. — JEVON —

  421. I went to high school with Nancy. She was probably one of the kindest people I have ever met. Her family was always extremely kind to me as well; they were just those rare “good folk” you always wanted to be around. I’m so very sorry to hear about her passing as I’m sure everyone else is.
    My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family this week.

  432. My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. May God’s loving-kindness comfort you during this time of sadness.

  433. Uncle Keith was a very good man. A truly nice man. Very friendly and thoughtful and always ready to provide a laugh, smile, or funny story. I will not remember him as an 80-year-old man, but will choose instead to remember him very fondly as a much much younger man, and an uncle who very much liked to laugh. My sympathies and condolences to my cousin Mike and family on his passing……………Greg M.

  434. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I hope you can find some comfort in knowwing that your Dad is with your Mother. I didn’t know your Dad, but I knew your wonderful Mother, Mary Ann who really loved your Dad.
    I babysat for the six of you while you lived in Thorp. I often thought of the ‘Lasiuk Family’ and wondered how to get in touch.

    On Sunday I read the obituary in the Thorp Courior. My t houghts are with all of you.

  436. Danny was a friend to all and I felt his friendly nature the first time I met him. Though I didn’t know him for all that long, I saw how he impacted many people who were drawn to his kindly ways and his sense of knowing when to give an encouraging word. I personally heard more positive things from him than negative in most of my encounters with him.

    So, he will be missed and it was a blessing know Dan and to be one of his friends since moving to the Hudson area some 16 years ago.

    God bless Dan Wittek

  444. Mr . Hotujec was my 7th grade math teacher. He was amazing in every way. When I sat and cried because I couldn’t do math he told me I could and he promised to walk me every inch of the way through 7th grade math. He made math fun, he made class fun and he made people laugh and smile. He was a wonderful man, a wonderful teacher and a prime example of what being a teacher is all about. He genuinely cared for his students. He loved his job and it was quite evident. Without him I never would have made it to where I am today.We have lost a wonderful person.

  445. I had Mr. Hotujec for 7th grade math, like Lora Filipiak Bullert, in 1977-8. I was in the section that was the last class of the day. I remember his great sense of humor – applying the nickname “weasel” to one of my closest friends and classmates due to this person’s habit of playing practical jokes on Mr. Hotujec. He never got angry or upset, and you could see the hint of a smile or smirk each time this would happen, reflecting both a wry sense of humor as well as being somewhat impressed by the creativity of the practical joke. Most of all, I remember the timed multiplication drills – and continuing to work and practice until I was able to finish one within the time limit. I credit you, Mr. Hotujec, for helping to develop my love of mathematics. Thank you so very, very much. You were an incredible teacher and human being and will be missed.

  446. Mr. Hotujec was my 7th grade math teacher (I am 31 now!) and I have never forgotten his kindness or his patience. I was one of those kids who was convinced that I would never understand math, but he always was around during lunch to help me (even when I was in 8th grade and struggling, I would still go to him!) I am honored to have known him and been taught by him. There are so few teachers like him in the world, and I hope that all of us who were blessed to have him teach us can pass on a little bit of his goodness. My thoughts are with his family, and I pray that Mr. Hotujec is at peace, and that peace will come to all those who miss him.

  447. I will have many fun days with Duke and Betty to think about at PVH. So glad I could be there to meet him, and say goodby at the end….

  448. I had Mr Hotujec for math in about 1977. He was one of the first to encourage me that it was cool to like math. He was a positive role model. My condolences to the family.

  449. We would like to send our prayers and condolences to Lomoine family . He has been a family friend for a long time and always had a great time with him. He well be missed.😢

  450. My heart is hurting for the loss of your wife and mother. I have been blessed that Mary has been a very dear friend to me for many years and I am so sad to hear of her passing. I’m sad for us–her family and friends–but happy for Mary because she is now resting in the Glory of God . . . always her end goal. We shared many hours of talking and companionship and I will miss her more than I can express. She was a woman of the GREATEST faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and our Blessed Mother Mary and she was an example and teacher, not only to me, but to anyone and everyone that she met. I am confident that her Lord’s work and witness on earth has earned Mary a special place in heaven. I will keep your family in my prayers. May Comfort and Peace be with you.

  451. We will miss Tim’s jokes. We often stood around laughing and joking with him. We got our dogs around the same time and would laugh and compare what they learned as if we were comparing children. He was proud of his family and often boasted of them. He could talk to anyone and was a great neighbor to all. We enjoyed helping him when he needed it. We will miss him but we know that he is with the Lord. We will keep his family in our prayers. God bless all of you.

  452. We are so sorry for your loss. I had brief contacts with Florence throughout the last few years. We shared an interest in genealogy and she was most gracious and helpful.

  453. He was such a nice man! I’d forgotten the “keep smiling!” but great advice for all. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  454. Some of my best memories of Duke were when we would meet with him and Betty Lee at Denny’s in Menomonie or the Hearty Platter in Wilson. We shared a love of pancakes. We also shared a bond of being the support for talented spouses.
    He was a man of quiet wisdom.

  455. I’m 40 now and had him as a middle school math teacher. Never a dull moment. Silly guy and great teacher. He always said “keep smiling ” praying for his family. He will always be smiling down on those he loved.

  456. Florence was a great Lady who was an example of compassion giving of her time and her love to so many people and causes. She was a great librarian who built a great library for the children of Saint Patrick School. She was a great friend and mentor. I will never forget the wonderful discussions we had about Jerusalem and peace in the middle east and the future of the Catholic Church. As someone who had traveled to the Holy Land it was wonderful to have the opportunity to listen to her words of wisdom. The greatest treasure Florence leaves behind is her wonderful loving children and grandchildren. There is now one more star in heaven and I will pray for her and to her because I know she is there waiting and watching over us.

  457. Sandy and I send our condolences to the entire Simon family. Florence (Flo to Sandy) will be remembered by us for her love and care for her family, and her obvious love of life. Seems she always has a smile and a kind word for us. We did not get to spend a lot of time with Florence but those time we had will become cherished memories. The loss of a mother is among the most painful of all, and they will always live on in our hearts. Our prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.

  458. I hugely admire Floyd for his unselfish care for his dear wife. Floyd was not exactly spry in his last years, yet he somehow managed to continue provide a loving home for Cathy. I’m certain that being with Floyd and living in familiar surroundings was comforting to her.

  459. Chuck was our friend… he was our son Brian’s Godfather. Please look out for us from the other side. We hope to go fishing with you again someday. Thanks for the memories. Rest In Peace.
    Love,
    Linda and Scott

  460. I always enjoyed seeing her when Pete brought her to Ace Hardware with him. She always had a smile and would like a little laugh once in awhile. Bless you Peter for taking such good care of her. She was always dressed nice and her hair was fixed just so. Prayers for you and your family. Jo

  461. Kay will be missed dearly. She was my mentor. She hired me over 28 years ago and I remember the day well. I admire her for her strength, knowledge, kindness, and hospitality. I remember her beautiful Magnolia tree in her backyard – this tree was not meant to withstand rough Wisconsin weather but I believe it’s standing to this day . I also remember her garden – full of beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables. It was a favorite day for all when she would invite us to her home for lunch. When she first moved to Wisconsin and she and Bob opened the business in the 1950’s, she was a pioneering woman for her time. She was an equal partner in the business and as her reputation grew, peers sought her knowledge for help. She lived her life exactly how she wanted to live it and nothing stood in her way. Although she will be missed, her legacy will live on in those she loved.

  462. Beautiful lady that whenever I saw her had that twinkle in her eye that made you wonder what she was thinking. Irene and I will miss her.

  463. Troy and Wendy-
    I’m so sorry to read this. Your dad was such a good man. Your parents were incredibly kind to me.

  464. I just wanted to express my condolences for your loss. Losing a loved one and a Father is always a painful experience. May God give you grace and peace in this sad time. Blessings always.

  465. Ken and Dawn our thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad and painful time.

  466. So very sorry for your loss. Our son played hockey with Matt and we remember his happy go lucky attitude. Our prayers are with you at this this time.

  467. Having been Sandi’s friend I spent many hours in their home during the years we attended Saint Patrick’s elementary school . I think I knocked when I came to the door but it was a lively household and Sam seemed to be the quietest .Sandi and I were not quiet. I’m so glad I got to see Sam at our 50 year high school reunion where he did not seem to have changed a bit . I wish I had talked to him longer of course. I always remembered their birthday but since leaving Hudson I never knowledged it until last year when I called Sandi. I wish he had known that every March 3 I thought of them. I’m so glad that he enjoyed his retirement am so sorry that he passed away so young . Family is in my prayers . Love and sympathy .Carolyn Ross Buntrock

  468. Kim and Heidi,
    I am so devastated to learn of Trenton’s passing. The sky has gained another star. I loved getting to know Trenton and you both. I always admired his strength in whatever was thrown at him and you both for being wonderful parents faced with many hard decisions. I miss watching Elmo with him and hanging out in the morning before one of you would get there. I saw you all on the news and I was so happy that he got to fly. What an awesome memory! I am unable to come on Friday but please know my heart is with you and that I am thinking of you both. I will never forget Trenton or his wonderful smile. Also, every time I see or hear Elmo, he’s there!

  469. Dawn, Ken, and family I am so very sorry for your loss. No parent should have to go through this…. you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  470. MATT was a very quiet, polite young man. I had him as a student several times while I was a sub teacher. He will be greatly missed by many close friends and family.so sorry for your loss.

  471. So very sorry for your lost of your grandmother.
    My God hold you close in this time of sorrow to comfort
    your hearts. It is so very difficult to loose a love one
    but always remember she will always be with you and be waiting on
    you for the day you will be reunited.
    Don’t cry for your grandmother she is in a great place.

  472. I am saddened to hear of Marie’s death. She was a sweet little lady and I enjoyed visiting with her at CCH when my mom was a resident. She enjoyed playing bingo, as did my mom. They may be celebrating at that giant bingo game in heaven! My sympathies.

  473. I am very sorry for your loss. I can’t even imagine your pain. Trenton touched my life and heart! I am proud to have known him. May you find comfort in knowing how amazing of a little boy he was. Thank you for having me in your lives.

  474. Beverly, Janet and family

    So sorry to hear about your mom passing away. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. She was always so friendly and bubbly. She will be missed by all.

    Nancy (Veenendall) Haines

  475. With deepest sympathy to Shari and all the Haroldson family. I first met Tom back around 1976-77 working with him at Gould Inc. in Eau Claire where we shared Christian tracts, of which I still have those and later worked with him for a time at PPMC. Tom truly was a Disciple of
    Jesus Christ. There are many verses which express his commitment to the Gospel, he certainly lived this one:
    1 Timothy 6:12
    Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
    The Lord be with you,

  476. Shari and family. Prayers hugs and sincere thoughts. Tom was a great man. His smile was contagious. You both will have a special place in my heart. Julie and Mike Gerber

  477. My Deepest Sympathy. Losing a family member is difficult, but your precious memories will stay with you forever. Thinking about them and talking about the good times as a family is comforting. As the days pass sometimes the difficulty rises because of really missing our loved one or being overwhelmed about “what now” or “I didn’t get the chance to say . .” There is an encouraging Scripture I want to share, “When anxieties overwhelmed me, You (God) comforted and soothed me.” Knowing that God is there for you is a real source of comfort. I really hope these words bring you peace and solace. (Psalms 94:19)

  478. So sad to lose Jeff. I am so happy my son Matt got to visit him prior to this. My fondest memories in life were when we coached the SSP traveling baseball team. Will never forget those times or you my friend !!!

    Kevin and family

  479. Miss Mable was one of the most thoughtful and kind ladies I’ve ever known. She and Bud were my next door neighbors for many years when my kiddos and I lived in the apartment on Cedar Street. She always looked out for us and my daughter called her Grandma Mabel. My son was too little to know her well, but whenever I voted, Miss Mable always asked about both of them. She will be missed! My deepest sympathies to her family.
    Chris Johnson-Bohl 🙏🏼❤️

  480. To Mabel’s family –
    I never met a more faithful election worker, Republican and volunteer in my life. She was a treasure to so many, and always close in my heart. We had many great discussions over the years, but none more special than when I ran for County Treasurer. Mabel and Tee Heiser – supported me more than anyone I had ever known. While she will be missed, her spirit of love, kindness and volunteerism will live in all of us in days to come. My deepest sympathies to Mabel’s Family.
    Cheryl & Dan Slind & family

  481. This was such an unexpected loss. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family especially Cody. We had the joy of knowing Jeff and his family for the past 24 years. Our boys grew up with Cody. We know that Jeff is at peace in Heaven with his loved ones gone before him and with God. One special memory that Jeff always joked about whenever we were together was the time that he fed our German shepherd Sadie tequila under the kitchen table so we wouldn’t see. All of a sudden Sadie couldn’t walk straight and Jeff fessed up to giving it to her! Rest in peace Jeff, you will always be remembered and thought of as part of our family.

  482. Tom remains in my memories and heart as a true loving man of God. His kindness and love for his family. Although he may be gone in the flesh his spirit will forever remain and live on through his wife, children, grandchildren and everyone whose life he has touched. ❤❤

  483. We got to know Dolores here in Norway when she came on a visit with her husband. They and my parents, Johan (Altons cousin) and Margarethe, became very good friends and visited each other in Norway and in the US. Later my husbond and I visited them in St.Paul and in Ft.Myers. We have many happy memories from these visits.
    Dolores was a wonderful lady.

  484. One of the kindest, thoughtful and generous people we have ever known. He was married to Dave’s cousin Myra or June as we always knew her. Bud will be remembered for all the things he did for other people. We want to express our deepest sympathy to Robert, Thomas and Gary. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this time.

    Dave and Jane Petersen

  485. Delores was a class mate of mine. (Class of 1944) She always made it a point to be at our Reunions. She was a wonderful,beautiful and caring person. We will miss her. Please except my sincere Sympathy.

  486. Our parents give us life. Our grandparents give us a sense of who we are and where we came from. Grandma impacted my life in so many ways and influenced who I am today. I will love you always and save a special corner of my heart just for you.

  487. Bud and their family lived in our neighborhood on 7th street in Hudson where our children grew up together. I am sorry I am not physically able to go to your dads funeral. My deepest sympathy to your family.

    Saw and talked to Bud at length at church each Sunday. We all loved him. What a wonderful and kind man. He never failed to ask about Bruce each time. We exchanged many conversations about our children . He will be missed by many.

  488. Eddie,

    I love you dearly & cherish the friendship we developed as teens! I will never forget how we got each other through one of the most difficult times in our lives. I will never forget the laughter, the tears, the hours spent walking in the park, how you saw the perfection in me I didn’t see in myself and I saw yours! I won’t forget our 8th grade banquet, almost getting beat up because a girl liked you & thought you liked me, our trip to Silvercliff, the graduation trip to Dallas with concerts & clubs, and all of the other stories & memories we shared! We were such dreamers! I pray that you are at peace my prince & all your dreams can come true in heaven! I love you so much & am so thankful for every moment I had with you and even more grateful we reconnected when we did! Rest In Peace Love! 😘😘😘

  489. Those we love don’t go away,
    They walk beside us every day.
    Unseen, unheard, but always near,
    Still loved, still missed and very dear.

    Goodbyes are not forever.
    Goodbyes are not the end.
    They simply mean I’ll miss you,…
    Until we meet again.

    Rest in piece cousin. I will never forget the memories. We will see each other again one day!
    Love April

  490. Kay was so good to my mother when they lived across the hall from each other at Wintergreen. She was solicitous and generous. Her nursing skills reassured me. And she was so proud of her family. My deepest sympathy to all.

  491. So sorry to hear of Eddi’s passing. He will be greatly missed by all of his family. Rest in peace cousin.

  492. Bud will always have a special place in my heart as I have many fond memories of him during his many years working with my dad. My first childhood memory is when he and June lived on our farm… I loved visiting them and spending time with their new baby, Bobby! Bud was always so upbeat, friendly and kindhearted. One of dad’s biggest pleasures in his later years were his phone conversations with Bud as they shared so many memories. He lived a long, honorable life and will be missed by all who knew him.

  493. Dear Judy and Family. So very sorry to hear of your loss. My brother Bill from Arizona just called and told me of her passing. What a beautiful person she was and a real asset to and representative of Hudson! She was gifted and just plain lovely to be around. And funny, yes, she could put a smile on your face for sure. We called ourselves “old cheerleading buddies” and that we were. My love and condolences, Mary (Danielson) Martin.

  494. So sad to hear that Eddie is gone home !!! He always had a beautiful smile and those bright eyes!! We share ALOT of sweet and funny memories growing up as neighbors in Lubbock. Our Condolences to your family whom we love and respect, lots of prayers for all the pain they must be going through.

  495. It took me a little time to decide to write this. Not because I didn’t want to nor because I don’t know what to say. But because I have so much to say and it all just wants to come out at the same time. I loved u very much Eddie. You were my double cousin, people thought we were twins growning up. Our DNA was closer than brother and sister. And I remember a time or two we just went along with it when we got asked. Growning up u were the closest thing to being a big brother even tho I’m only a few months older. I know as we got older we lost touch of what family really means. I hate myself wondering if u knew how much u really meant to me? I’m angry because I let you down for not telling u enough. I know in my heart that you are with my dad and ur dad and y’all have so much catching up to do. I hope u are smiling down from HEAVEN to help ease the pain of all these nice people you have impacted over the yrs. Love you to heaven and back……..
    Angel

  496. We met Eddie and the rest of his family when my mother-in-law was in the hospital on Lubbock. This precious family took care of us and our kids enjoyed being with them so much. What a great memory. Sadness all around and yet the Lord provided joy in it. Love y’all!!

  497. I hope all your family will know they can leave you a message here. Know we are all praying for your family in this difficult time. We are here for you, whenever you are in need us. Please, do not hesitate to reach out to us when you need us. We’re right here in Abilene.

  498. To Eddie you were a shining star in a dark world. You my precious nephew were a free spirit with a beautiful soul. I’m sad that my name was not mentioned as your aunt because out of all my nieces and nephews you and me were very close and had a very special bond. For that relationship i will forever be grateful. Thank you for all of our talks and the laughs. I’m forever grateful that your Mom taught her children to actually love and respect your aunts and uncles and to call me Aunt Jovon. My heart hurts that you have left me behind but so grateful you are in a better place with your Dad Eddie and your Granny Joy. Just thinking of that makes my heart jump for joy. I know Jesus and your Granny met you at the gate and gently walked you in. Sour with the Eagles precious angel. I love you so much!!!! To my sister Donnora you are strong and your son loved you dearly. I know you will miss your baby but please remember there is no tragedy on this earth big enough that heaven can not heal. Sincerely Aunt Jovon!!! Until we meet again you keep watching over us.

  499. My deepest condolences to Eddie’s family who loved him so dearly. The world has lost such a kind a beautiful soul. I remember when I met Eddie for the first time when he visited Lubbock a few years back, it was if we already knew each other for a very long time! There was just a loving presence in the air that made that moment full of laughter. We’re sad you are no longer here, Eddie, but you will live forever in the hearts of those who had the privilege to call you family or friend.

  500. Regina, Tom, Jonathan, & Sarah:
    Thinking of you and your family with much love. Take care –
    Becky & Steve

  501. Dear Donora and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Eddie. Please know I am praying for you all. There are no words that can heal a broken heart. Again I am so very sorry for your loss. Thinking of you.

  502. Eddie Salas was a sweet and incredibly kind man. He had a very gentle way about him that allowed others to feel they could trust him completely. Anyone could depend on Eddie because he wanted to be there to support you. More than that he wanted to help build you and help you become a better person. Through a lifetime of widely varying experiences, Eddie learned the exceptionally rare ability of being unbiased. He did not judge others and refused to take sides. The reason for that was Eddie was a side of his own. He was truly unique in many ways, yet he made sure to let everyone around him know they were special. He had a spirit and energy that literally filled the room and even though he had serious medical issues he remained happy and felt blessed until the very end. His positivity and ability to focus on the good in the world and within people has changed who I am and left me a much better person. I will forever be grateful for the many ways he enriched my life and I will always love him.

  503. Eddie had an amazing laugh and beautiful soul. His inspiring advice and loving compliments made him a joy to be around. He had a spectular sense of style and his humorous wit made me laugh until I cried. His spirituality encompassed his body and soul and his helping hand edified my encaved spirit. We met at a crossroads when we both needed each other’s help. He was my Knight in shining armor and my pearl white angel. I will always him remember his clever wit and short get-to-the-point commentary. He was educated and full of wordly wisdom. His knowledge was useful, simple, and kind. I will miss him dearly. The passing was bittersweet; I am so happy he is in Heaven, however, I am so sad he is gone. I love you Eddie, pray for me, and watch over me.

  504. Wayne, Julie & Family-
    I am so sorry to hear of Ray’s passing, he was a wonderful man! I will never forget one Saturday afternoon, he pulled out his clubs and showed me how to properly hit a golf ball! I am so glad to hear from Sue, that he was happy at his new home in Hudson and that they fell in love with him just like we did! Prayers to you all.

  505. Eddie was kind, funny and outgoing. I still remember seeing him the first two times. Once was a random encounter and the second I finally got to talk to him. He had a strong faith and believed in Jesus as his Savior and is in heaven. We were blessed to know him. You are all in my prayers.

  506. Dear Doonan Family,
    I am so sad with the news of Janice’s passing. She was a friend to all and a wonderful representative of our Hudson High School 1961 class. She had the most outgoing personality and everyone liked her. We are all so grateful to her for organizing our class reunions over the years.
    Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely,
    Sharon Ulman Brown

  507. Eddie Don, You were a joy and highlight to my life. You loved people and gave the greatest of gifts. Your calls, jokes and just the beautiful soul that you are and we’re will be greatly missed. I do not know what I will do without being able to hear your voice, your laugh, and hugs. Your memories have decorated my heart in such a way that is so precious and dear. I will carry you as I always have in my heart and memories. I love you so very much. I know you are with God as you and I have talked. You shared your faith, Jesus is your Lord and I do know that you achieved the greatest gift which is love. Thank you for loving me and for being a wonderful son. I will miss you. Love always and forever, Mom

  508. To Eddie’s family,
    I am sorry to hear about Eddie.
    He was a wonderful and very kind man.
    I have many memories of him that bring a smile to my face. I am a richer man for knowing him!! He has had a big and meaningful impact on my life.
    I hope that your family can take comfort that Eddie is up with the Lord. Eddie truly is soaring with the eagles.

  509. My heart hurts for this loss! My thoughts and prayers are with everyone that Jeff touched! Prior to him moving to Washington Jeff told me that I would always have a brother in MN since mine didn’t live here anymore. I will miss the time we spent at the bowling alley laughing and enjoying the time. You have always been there for me and I will always be great fun for that and miss you more than you will ever know. Cody my thoughts are with you!

  510. We’ve lost touch over the years but I will always remember Jeff fondly, for his sense of humor and honesty. My first memory of Jeff was from when I was about 10. We were at a fancy restaurant and he made me laugh until I cried. I remember seeing his face through the tears and he just wouldn’t let up. Next was a time we visited the family in Minnesota and he introduced us to the Simpsons. Finally, one of the last times I spoke to him, he told me how important it was to him that our family would always stay in touch, despite the distance and the loss of Grandma Betty. You always think you have all of the time in the world. He was a good man with a good heart and an ornery streak. Love and condolences.

  511. I have wondered in the past how Jane was doing since the days at St Joe’s Academy. I will keep Jane, Julie, and the rest of her family (both in community and her Winkler sisters) in my prayers.
    May she rest in the Lord’s peace.

  512. I have known my friend Jane since college. Kathy Meyer, another UWRF student, and I often studied with her at the university. My memories are of a dear lady who loved being the “sunshine” of everyone’s day. Even though I have not seen her for several years, I have carried her in my heart. We were all blessed to have known Jane.

  513. Locke’s & Loe’s and More…
    I am so sorry to hear of this loss. He was a funny guy and the world will miss him. Cody, my heart aches for you. All the loves guys!!
    Love, Katie and Fam

  514. I met Jane in 1970 when I was looking for a college to attend. She met my grandparents, my parents and me that autumn and showed us all that U of Wisconsin – River Falls had to offer. She later became my dorm Resident Assistant (R.A.). From that time on, she referred to me as her “Little Sis.” I loved her like a big sis and deepest heart friend. I will carry her in my heart always and forever.

  515. Please know that Jeff was an inspiration to our team throughout high school football. I got to know him during that time and would always appreciate his encouragement when times were tough. During his time at Mankato, he was the same individual. When most people are refining themselves at college, Jeff was defining himself. Please try and find some peace during these troubled times. Jeff would too.
    Deep regards,
    James

  516. Gordy and Jean were wonderful neighbors in our E.P. Rock neighborhood. So very sorry to hear of Gordy’s passing, Sending love and prayers to you and your family Jean.

  517. Sorry for your loss, Jeff worked with my husband. I hope you are able to find peace after the huge loss you have endoured. Let your angels guide you.

  518. Wendy, Justin & Bryce my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I had the privilege of working with Brian, a dear friend and colleague. I am having a difficult time acknowledging that he is no longer with us. We worked together in so many projects at the bank, and he was a true team player and always led by example. A happy go-lucky individual that truly cared for others. Customers were his priority and excellence is rule. The word NO was not part of his dictionary; everything was possible in his eyes if we gave it our attention, time and dedication. This year, we worked so close together to deliver two major project initiatives for the bank; the outsourcing of our core system, and the debit card system conversion. As always, he was willing to go that extra mile giving it his full attention and dedication. He never got to see it materialize since the transition of both systems happened the weekend of his passing. I will miss him dearly, and will make sure his legacy will continue in everything we do going forward. During Hurricane Irma, I gave him a new nickname Jesus because he was everywhere just like Jesus making sure things got done, helping in every which way he could; the goal in his eyes was getting the job done! I will miss him dearly, and he will always be in my heart, my dear Brian. Love you! Terri B.

    P.S. I would like to share with you a collage of him with all of the good times that we shared together as team mates. You can email me or call me at 305-304-7808. Thank you! Terri Bethencourt

  519. I still remember laughing with Brian the most. Even with early morning hours and late night evenings when I worked at the bank he never failed to bring a smile to our faces. Many times he and I worked together on an important task, upcoming deadline or helping a customer obtain need funds when stranded out of state. He was wonderful both in and out of the office. Many relays he worked with my husband Chuck and Co-worker Chris on helping set us up and clean up. Even though Chuck and I are no longer with the bank he is still in our hearts and inspires us to be better people. Our condolences to Wendy, the boys and all his family. Our hearts go out to you all. May God Bless you and watch over you.

  520. Wendy, my heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
    May God surround you with love and strength.

  521. Wendy and Family, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers are with your family at such a difficult time. God Bless.

  522. Gordy gave years of service to the Phipps Foundation and was instrumental in bringing forth and supporting numerous grant requests that benefited our community.
    We are thankful for his dedicated and committed support of our community.

  523. Gordy gave years of service to the Phipps Foundation and was instrumental in bringing forth and supporting numerous grant requests that benefited our community.
    He was a dedicated and committed servant of our community.

  524. Wendy, Justin and Bryce, I am so sorry to see this. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Big Hug

  525. I met Brian when I began at First State Bank 2 years ago and feel fortunate to have known him as not only a co-worker but as a friend. Brian was always willing to help even if it wasn’t his “job”. He was also someone that could be counted on to share a laugh with even when things were stressful. His joyful energy and can-do attitude will be missed and he will always be remembered for his spirit for life.
    Sending thoughts and prayers for peace and healing to his family.

  526. Dear Shefland Family,

    We were very sad to hear of Wally’s passing. We liked Wally. Know that you are taking comfort in knowing he is walking streets of gold. He was a faithful believer. We pray the peace that passes all understanding in this difficult time.

    Blessings, Quinn & Lisa Seaman and kids

  527. Brian was one of the sweetest, hardest-working people I’ve ever met. He was tremendously dedicated to his role here at the Bank, to his staff, and to his co-workers. Generally, he was the first person I’d see coming into work in the morning–he always had a smile on his face. We would often stop and chat about what a crazy little town we lived in, and he always made me laugh. Brian truly had a “joie de vivre”–even at the most stressful times, like after the hurricane, he still was joyful. My deepest condolences to his family and friends, I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Brian will be greatly missed.

  528. Brian was truly one of the best people I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with at FSB. He will be greatly missed. My condolences and prayers for his family.

  529. I have been fortunate to have worked with Brian at First State Bank of the Florida Keys and can say he will be greatly missed. While I didn’t work directly with Brian, you could not help but feel his enthusiasm for work along with his genuine enjoyment in working with people. It didn’t matter if it was close colleague he had worked with for years, someone new to the bank, or a customer with a service question, Brian always effortlessly reached out with genuine heartfelt support and compassion. He always took time for life experiences. Whether arriving at a carefully considered solution or just having a friendly chat, Brian celebrated people and took any chance to make a new friend.

    Our thoughts of peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and wonderful memories to forever hold in your hearts.

  530. I was very saddened to hear of Wally’s passing. As one of Wally’s former driver’s I always enjoyed talking to him about anything. He’ll be greatly missed. I’ll always remember Sally.
    Steve Hoffmann

  531. So sad to hear about Gordy – what a wonderful man and wonderful family. Our prayers are with you. God bless.

    Kevin and Sheila Fox

  532. Wendy, Justin and Bryce, we were shocked to hear of Brian’s passing. I can’t begin to imagine what you are going through. I hope in time you can find comfort in knowing that he is in the loving arms of Our Father and you will one day see him again. Our thoughts and prayers are will you all. Rest in peace Brian.

  533. Jean and Jeff shocked and so sorry to hear about Gordon. He always had a smile and hello for us at church. We will miss his smile and handshake.
    Deb and Zane

  534. He was always a Go to Guy for questions, concerns or just for a laugh and a smile or cookies. A better outlook on life and what really matters few had. He will be missed by us here at FSB; the void he leaves is great in our hearts.
    Wendy, Justin & Bryce my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  535. I send my deepest and heartfelt sympathies to Brian’s family and loved ones at this time, Brian and I worked together at First State Bank for many years, I will say there was not a more dedicated, spirited, hardworking friend than he! he always was willing to help no matter what the task was and who needed help. He always gave excellent customer service and was the GUIDING LIGHT of the Online Banking/Call Center Department. His life was a blessing, his memory a treasure, he is loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.
    Mia

  536. I was only able to work with Brian for 2 years. He will be missed not only for his tremendous industry knowledge, but for his gregarious personality. I always enjoyed talking with Brian.

    Prayers to his entire family and friends.

    Greg

  537. I don’t think I will ever have the words to describe how I feel losing this man. He was a co-worker, close friend, confidant, and an all around good man and father to Wendy and his sons. I will miss him dearly and always have him in my heart. My condolences to the family and you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending my love…

    -Bobbie

  538. As President & CEO of First State Bank of the Florida Keys, and on behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to recognize Brian as one of our most valuable and beloved employees. He cared deeply about our customers, co-workers and humanitarian causes alike. He was often one of the first to volunteer to help whether it was for our Bank-sponsored Relay For Life fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, an employee event, a complex Bank project or as one human being to another. Immediately after Hurricane Irma, Brian’s efforts directly contributed to the reopening of several of our branches and he also extended himself on a personal level, helping other employees including myself with our post-storm recovery efforts. No job was beneath him; in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma he cleaned out refrigerators and freezers of food gone bad from the electricity being out for days, mopped flood waters out of our branches, and went out of his way to think of ways to help customers who were in desperate need of funds. Customer service was his priority and he taught his department its value through his actions each and every day. His caring knew no bounds. He was dedicated, selfless and genuine in his actions. Brian will be greatly missed, thought of often and forever in our hearts.

  539. Wendy, Bryce & Justin ~ I really don’t know what to say. Nothing I say will make the hurt in your heart be any less or make your sorrow disappear. Brian was such an AMAZING person/friend and loved you all very much.
    I want you all to know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Dennis and I are truly very sorry for your loss. I still can’t believe he’s gone.
    Sending you lots of love ~
    Tracy & Dennis Tollers

  540. I worked with Sharon at Phillips Plastics and I fondly remember her quick wit, sense of humor and friendliness with everyone. She loved talking about her kids, her grandkids and their activities and the memories she was making at the cabin with Kent. She was truly a strong and beautiful woman. God Bless all who loved her. Rest in peace, Sharon.

  541. Brian was my nephew and we loved him dearly. Donna and I were very Blessed to have Brian as part of our family. He was an awesome person who loved life to the fullest. We will miss him greatly. Rest In Peace Brian. Our thoughts and prayers are with Wendy and the boys.

  542. I have known Brian for nearly 30 years and honestly have not known a more considerate and caring . Will always remember his generousness, kindness and his great attitude. Many, many… good memories and will miss Brian. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  543. Dear Uncle Wally, there are things about you that I will never forget. Your Sweet Disposition, your love for your Trucking, your love for your three daughters and all your little grandchildren. I’ll never forget your snoring when we spent the night at your house when I was a little kid. Give Aunt Mae a hug for me and my mom and make everyone laugh!

  544. Brian was such a caring person. I sure do miss the Wizard at Securian. I worked with him for many years and respected his hard work ethic. He could do anythiing with reports and was able to provide a lot of insight working on our inventory and procurement systems. We worked tirelessly as a team when we went through name changes. Brian loved his boys and Wendy. I recall him talking at work about Wendy’s busy days at the hospital and how tired she would be. He would have dinner ready, draw water for a bath and have candles lite so she could relax. I know Wendy did a lot of great things for Brian too and they both really enjoyed each other’s company. Brian will be truly missed by anyone that knew him. Rest In Peace “Wizard”. I will miss your smile and fun loving spirit.

  545. I considered Brian as my and great friend. I am fortunate to have known him as long as I have. I will truly miss you my friend, my brother.
    Scott

  546. We will miss Brian. He was a good man and a caring father. Our daughter Wendy and grandsons know we all will miss him much and just as shocked at his passing. Our prayers are with & Wendy, Justin & Bryce.

  547. So very sorry to hear this sad news. Our thoughts of deep sympathy are with you and your family during this very sad time. Daily may God (Ps.34:18) give you the needed comfort and strength as you try to cope with such a great loss. Sanden will be missed and always will be fondly remembered.

  548. What a wonderful lady Nora was always pleasant and so easy to
    talk to. I loved seeing all the sister’s together Irma and Arlene and
    Nora you could see the love between them.
    If you ever need anything I can do for you let me know. You will
    be in my prayers.
    Bless you, Donna Christensen

  549. (From my gratitude journal I keep to remember my great blessings from God)

    Cathy Jacobson,

    A light reflecting God’s love so beautifully
    I am most blessed to call her family

    In illness we found a path to closeness
    That only God could have prepared

    She made less of her terminal condition
    To console and encourage me

    Like rediscovering a friend
    And wishing we connected sooner

    Cathy, selfless, loving, putting others first
    She amazed me in the depth of her faith

    I pray for the family’s comfort
    That the God of all comfort seem near

    May God choose me to share
    Even half of the love Cathy gave to all

    Cathy, sweet child of God
    Rest in the presence of your Father

    Until that glorious day
    We reunite in Christ

  550. Your beautiful smile, love of life and family was infectious! You will be missed by us all! We will see you on high when we all gather with our Lord and Saviour!

  551. Sanden, I watched you grow from a 4 year old when I first met you to the bright young man you were becoming. My heart breaks that there was nothing I knew to do to help you. Your bright shining light in our life is missed. To your family I can only grieve with them and for them. God Keep you and protect you. Your leaving us is leaving a hole in our lives. Mark

  552. My deepest sympathy to Linda and the family. I served as an elder with Pastor Al for a few years and appreciated his faith and focus. God bless you Linda and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  553. We are so sorry to hear of Nora’s passing. We remember the great times we shared with Nora as her neighbors on Summer Street, and could spend hours chatting with her on the stoop of her house. Throughout the years, Nora was like a grandmother to my daughter Brianna in the years of Brianna’s childhood. We could not have asked for a better neighbor than Nora! Nora will always be kept in our hearts and memories. We wish your family the deepest of condolences.
    Regards,
    Michelle and Brianna Albertson

  554. Shirley (and family),

    We are sorry to hear of your mother’s death and are lifting you and your family up before the throne of God. May the Lord surround you with His presence in Christ and draw you near during this time of grief.

    We love you!
    In Christ alone,
    Levi, Sarah, & Boaz

  555. Mrs. Swanson was such a special person. Always kind and willing to help.
    She raised a lot of us over the years. She always kept a beautiful yard!

    Regards,
    Dan and Roxane O’Keefe

  556. Hi Arlene and Irma, So sorry to hear of Nora’s passing. My deepest sympathy to you and your families. You three have had some wonderful years together at Wintergreen.

  557. Al was our Pastor for several years while serving at the Stockholm Baptist Church in Stockholm, Maine. He became a close and dear fiend! He always had a smile on his face. He loved people, and most of all, he Loved his Lord and Savior! Now he is at rest and in the presence of Jesus!
    What a day that will be when my Jesus I shall see! When I look upon His face, the One who Saved me by His Grace! What a day ,Glorious Day, that will be!! Now he has experienced this very Joy. Our prayers will continue for Linda and the entire family. God Bless and keep each and everyone of you.

  558. I am very sorry for your loss and offer my heartfelt sympathy. May you find comfort from your precious memories of your time together and strength from God’s loving promise at Isaiah 41:10.

  559. I grew up with Dorene as my next door neighbor. We were children together with her older sister Denise ,playmates, forever friend’s with memories too numerous to mention. Although we lost track of each other, we shared the same birthday and always wished each other a happy birthday sister message. I am sorry I didn’t get to see her and share memories and show our pics of our kids and grandkids to each other. But we shared our early lives. I know Dorene is watching over her family and will live on in our hearts! Miss you Red…love Elaine

  560. We praise the Lord for all the years we were able to be ministered to by Pastor Al Nasman he has fought the good fight he has finished the course he is experiencing God’s glory our condolences to each of the family members Our love and prayers to each of you

  561. Dave: so sorry on the loss of your dad. May he be your angel from above forever and always. Take care – thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family.

  562. Was sorry to hear of Pat passing away. She was a neat lady. She would always give me that look whenever I had to do her blood sugar and insulin!! I loved her smile! She will be missed.

  563. Our condolences to the family of a wonderful man. Don gave our son Aaron his first haircut in the special chair he used for children. Aaron was teary eyed in the beginning, but warmed to to this wonderful man and was talking up a storm by the end of the haircut. We have pictures of Aaron crying the looking more curious and then smiling. He touched our hearts 💕 and many many more I imagine. Thank you Don for a wonderful memory you gave our family.

  564. Sanden, you will be missed around the bonfires at the swap meets and engine shows where we first met you as a little boy tearing into a watermelon on a hot August day in Portland, Indiana.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Geoff and Oz you guys don’t know how much my heart aches for you all. Wish there was more I could say to help, just know that your extended “family” is here for you.

  565. Donna,Dianne and families. So sorry to hear about Margie. We had so many good times together. Will miss seeing her at CCH. My sympathy and prayers to all of you.

  566. Penny and Larry were very special people. They were patients of our dental office. I am so sorry for your loss. They are together again.

  567. Penny was a very special friend. She will be dearly missed by her friends. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family. I’m so glad I got a chance to see and visit with her a couple weeks ago.

  568. So sorry to hear of your loss. Your mom was such a sweet lady and did such a fine job raising you kids. So happy she had many years on this earth. She will be a great loss to your family.

  569. This is sad news to hear… I knew Dorene from our Red Cross days… she was a wonderful person… and… a wonderful person to work with.

    You will be missed Dorene.. in many ways… this is how much, you have touched all of our lives!!

  570. I am still trying to come to terms with all of this news. I knew Dorene from the ARC. I worked many a mobile with her, she was a feisty, wonderful woman. She always had a smile on her face and enjoyed working with all the coordinator’s and volunteer’s as well as the staff. She was such a joy to be around, she loved her kids and grandkids always talking about them. This is such a hard time for everyone who knew and loved her, our memories will always be there for us to take out and remember all the little things that made Dorene such a special person. I choose to think Dorene is looking over all of us and still has such a sparkle in her eye, Till we meet again! Much love sent to her family and know she was very much loved by everyone who was fortunate to know her.

  571. Dave and the Cahoy Family

    Your dad gave me my first real haircut in about 1952. He continued to be my barber for over the next 50 years until he retired. I always found Don to be a pleasant and kind man and enjoyed visiting with him in later years when running into him around town.

    May all your good memories make this time a little easier.

    Bill zappa

  572. Donnie and family so sorry to hear about Olive I enjoyed working with her at the telephone company.Donnie you were a wonderful daughter to your mother happy she enjoyed her time in AZ. Sorry I cannot make it to the service hope we can get together next time you come to WI.

  573. For many years, Marge lived across the street from my family home in St Paul. She was a good neighbor, always greeting us with a smile and a wave. You could count on her to be there for you. My memories of growing up in a caring community, with sense of security included the knowledge that Marge was just across the street. She like watching her soap opera, but when I found myself “locked out” of our house, she was there for me and the TV was turned off. I will not forget her kindness.

  574. To the Dahlberg family in their time of grief and loss,

    …. I counted Aaron as a friend as much as I count 101 and the Dahlbergs as my family, which is greater than I just words can express. I met Aaron and the Dahlbergs for the first time after Tom knocked on my cab door @ the Air-Lite terminal where I was sleeping till the holiday was over and told me I was going to Thanksgiving at his house. What a nice kindness Tom extended which it turns out he has done for others his whole life.

    Aaron was to me exceptionally gifted and bright but seemed looking back to lack purpose, something he wanted to do in life. That drive I believe has to come from within. It seems that the demon that got a hold of him and so many young people nowdays was something with which he could not come to grips. I have talked to Jody about a similar situation with her son and I am sure she is remembering and grieving not only for you but has re-opened an unhealable scar. I have talked to Tom about Aaron and my daughter Lindsay who is also on that path. She rides the bike and then falls off and each time you worry it is the last. I have been divorced over 20 yrs and the only time I have spoken to my X was when I went to Denver for what I thought was to bury my daughter. Turns out she got back on the bike but you always wonder if it is inevitable. It is always there on your mind. I say this now because I am so sorry and know something of your tribulation and anguish.

    I am honestly writing this because I feel the need to tell you how remorseful I feel about your tragic loss and I don’t know how to come to terms with this and I am truly heartbroke and so sorry this tragedy has happened. A deep sadness follows in Aarons wake for all those he touched.

    I do believe that hope springs eternal and I know that Aarons heart was always in the right place even when sometimes his thoughts were not. Grace can only help him now and I am sure it is and will. I know that his new direction is all positive and good.

    Respectfully, Bob

  575. My heart goes out to Aaron’s family and loved ones. I pray that Aaron has found peace. May the memories you share with one another bring you comfort during this difficult time.

  576. Dear Dawn and Russ, We pray for God’s comfort and we extend our sympathy to you both. I lost track of Virginia when we first moved to Mason City, IA and we have moved several times since then. We are in northern WI now and I have often wondered where Virginia had moved since we lost contact and I could not find a trace. What a very kind person and kind friend she was and the most giving and generous person I have ever met. God bless you and your family, and I am so happy to know that Virginia is now with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We will see her again someday!

  577. Aaron was our favorite “serious” nephew and cousin! And we think without knowing it, he had an incredible ability to make the person he was talking to, smile. We will remember Aaron as a darling baby, an absolute “hoot” as a child and a musically talented young adult who along with his other talents, had perfect comic timing! Aaron was a gifted young man and reminded us so much of our father, who also took reading as a serious business, and spent many, many happy hours in a book!
    We send our love, hugs and blessings to his mother Deanna, his father Tom and his sister Nancy.
    God be with you, till we meet again.
    With love, Karen and Ken Schlesinger

  578. To the family if Virginia you have my deepest sympathy. Though I didn’t know her, I now some of her siblings and my sympathy to to them. I’m sure she was a wonderful mother and sister..

  579. Dear Darryl and family,
    What a patriarch your father must have been! And what a wonderful long life he enjoyed. May God’s peace surround all of you.
    Diane

  580. My Deepest Sympathy To all of you.. I live in Bradenton Fl. and if Mom is still here.. let me know I would love to talk with her..as I have many memories of the old days.. I mean really Old..

  581. Although it has been several years since we spent any time with Stephanie, we remember her for her laughter, gentle spirit and joy of life.

    Our deepest sympathies to Mary and Stephanie’s Family.

  582. Those few times spent in Stephanie’s company, although several years ago, were filled with laughter and joy.

    Our deepest sympathies to Mary and Stephanie’s Family.

  583. Way to young. Our mother was way to young.
    Bless the Parslow family and our prayers are with you.

    Jerry

  584. 2 1/2 years ago I had the pleasure of spending a few days with Stephanie at Mary’s home in Florida. I found her to be such a funny and wonderful person. We spent the days having a great time at all the local tourist attractions (I have a pic of her on her hands and knees with her head stuck in the mouth of an alligotor statue), and our nights playing cards and the 2 of them talking about their childhood antics. (Sneaking beer on family camping trips and stashing it in the river to keep it cold.) She told me these stories with a gleam in her eyes, and a mischievous grin. That’s how I always think of her. I am so glad I got to spend that time getting to know Mary’s best friend, and so sad there will never be more. Rest In Peace Funny Lady

  585. Thank you Steph for accepting me as your friend. Whenever I see glitter confetti, I will think of you…fly free with the angels sweet one…sending love to Marc and the kids…You live on in our hearts…kathleen

  586. Aunt Emma I just want you and the family know I’m sorry that I didn’t make it back to see you. You are and always will be my Favorite Aunt. Sending my love, thoughts and prayers to the whole family.

  587. Stephanie was a treasured member of our NET cancer support group in Minnesota. When she first joined us, she used to help me set up meetings. She had the most wonderful twinkle in her eye. We hadn’t seen her for a while and I just reached out to her last week. I am shocked and saddened by her death. I won’t forget her kindness and fierceness. Heaven got a good one. With deepest sympathies, -dm

  588. Linda and Greg and families
    Thinking of you at this difficult time. I remember
    your Dad well. I didn’t realize they lived in Hudson
    all of this time.
    Sincerely–Sharon

  589. Dear Barbara and Sisters, and families,

    Sorry to hear that your father has passed away. Such a life well-lived, and a wonderful legacy to pass on to the next generations of your family.

    You school friend, Mary

  590. Just saw this Nancy and I was sorry to hear of your dads
    Passing. I enjoyed knowing him. Nice nice guy!!

  591. I did not know Peter, but working with Tori the last six year I know he and his wife must have been very special. They taught well and Tori learned very well from them. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.

  594. I wish I could make it to his service. I loved Peter! He always made me laugh – I loved his snarky comebacks and comments. He was a joy to be around. I miss visiting with him each morning and his passing leaves a hole in my heart. I won’t forget him.
    I am praying for the family.
    Love,
    Moneybags

  597. To Bonnie, The family and friends.
    I am saddened at the loss of Jim. We had many a good fishing trips over the years and nobody enjoyed them more than Jim. Fish fries in Pop Kings Back yard. with all the families and friends.

    Curt,

  598. Bonnie and family of Jim, I’m mourning with you for your loss. Love you, Bon, and I’m praying for you all at this hard time. – Jannie

  599. Dear Caponi Family,

    I am very sorry to hear of Ann’s passing. I have many fond childhood memories, playing as kids on 62nd St. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  600. Many memories of Grace….bowling at the old Purple Door lanes in Woodville. I still have a piece of her Amazing Grace ceramics. My deepest sympathy to the family. Continued prayers.

  601. Gina & Cherrie & Family,
    My heart is heavy with the recent news of your Dad… and my dear Uncle Jim – I want you to know how fortunate I was to have been able to not only grow up with an awesome Uncle like him but to also be able to have him as an employee in my department while working for the City of Hudson after he retired… He started mowing grass in our city parks and boulevards back in 2004 and truly became one of our “GO TO” guys who was Dedicated and always making sure our parks looked beautiful… He would want to get a head start in the Spring and kept on for many years… As fr Your Dads love for his family… well that goes without saying….. he would stop by my office regularly to check up on My Dads health, as well as making regular stops by his place to check in on him and also the sisters and others… He will be deeply missed and I pray that the many memories you have will fill your heart with a love like none other….. Love to all, God Bless, Deb

  602. I have great memories of Uncle Jim…. from causing chaos at the house playing with his girls, my cousins Gina and Shari to watching him play softball with my dad… I know they played for a few teams and it was always so fun to lay the blanket down on the grass on the side of the park and watch them play. Then after the games we were privileged kids to go to the local bar and enjoy an ice cold soda and a bag of chips … that’s only if we were well behaved during the games of course!

    My thoughts are of the family and I pray that they are comforted during this very difficult time.

  603. Auntie Grace you will be missed by all the people that you have touched in your life. You are in a sweet place now and you can start your next journey. One day we will see you again until that time peace be with you.
    Love you with all my heart. Julie

  604. Grace you will be missed by all the people who m you touched. You will always be in ours ❤💞&prayers lovely lady that you are rest in paradise, Grace! We will all see you soon, in heaven. Sweet lady.

  605. My condolences to the Family of Grace Solum. You will be missed by all of your family members and all of those friends that you have touched in you long life journey. RIP Auntie Grace Love You forever. Grace fly as high with your wings look down upon us and keeps under your wings my wonderful woman God bless you and a good journy in heaven.
    Love your Nepew Danny❤❤❤❤

  606. To the family of Grace, my deepest and sincere sympathy. I remember Grace when she lived in Woodville. She babsat my son. She always made me feel like family. RIP dear Grace.

  607. I was a nurse at Elmwood and enjoyed caring for Grace. I felt so bad for her that she had so much discomfort. But she made me laugh everyday with her sense of humor. I’m sure she is in better hands now. God’s blessing to your family.

  608. My sincere condolences to the family and many friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29). Oh how we long for the time when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-5).

  609. I enjoyed working with Lee. Very shocked to hear he has left us so early in life. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

  610. I will not forget the musical foundations Paul provided when he started me in piano lessons and directed our 5th-6th grade band. Even his occasional subbing for the high school choir was so notable, I distinctly remember it. Only a few people probably knew how amazing his set building skills were, particularly in BW’s production of Wizard of Oz. His abilities were so diverse—he was skilled as an organist, visual artist, carpenter and business owner. Those who had their piano tuned by Paul would hear his amazing rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow as the finale. I remember listening as a ten year old and thinking, “I want to be like that.” Baldwin will deeply miss one of the most remarkable people it has ever known.

  611. May the God of all Comfort be with you at this difficult time. Keeping all family members in my daily thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed watching Paul play the organ/piano and sing in the First Presbyterian Church throughout my childhood years. Paul’s music store was always a great adventure I shared with my mother. Later in life, he also helped restore my mother’s childhood piano. His passion for music was contagious and know that his is enjoying heaven’s great music right now. Deepest sympathies.

  612. I always appreciated the way Lee could be serious about the needs of the people around him, even while he was making sure we never took ourselves too seriously.

  613. Lee, you are one of the kindest people I have ever met. Your life on earth was cut way too short! Hold the doors open for me and maybe you can finally teach me how to two-step. ❤

  614. Deann, Collin, and Alayna, Deann and Lee were always willing to open up their home for the get-togethers and family reunions. He was such a fine young man and much too young to leave this world. He certainly will be missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.

  615. Lee was always such a presence in the family. I absolutely loved his stories. He always had a way of making you laugh. The banter between him, our cousins and the uncles was something to behold. He will be sorely missed. Give Grandma LaValley a hug for me and save me some of the “green stuff” too. All our love, Karri, Anthony, Aidan and Logan.

  616. Although Lee will be deeply missed but his laugh, his smile and crazy stores will live on in our memories. My heart goes out to Deann and the kids, Uncle Bob, Auntie Brenda, Heather and Jason. Love you all!!!

  617. Lee, you will be greatly missed by our entire family. Your early departure has left a huge hole in the family. Your sense of humor, crazy stories, and funny commentary was always a great part of the family get-togethers. We don’t regret the time we didn’t get to spend with you, just treasure the time we did. Say “hi” to Grandma Lavalley and save some “green stuff” for us. We are here for your family and will give support when they need it. See you on the other side. Love from the Stang Family.

  618. I am so glad I got to see you at our last class reunion it was 25 years. Your jokes will be missed dearly. I love my friend. RIP buddy we will see each other again.

  619. I miss you Digger!!! You were the best friend anyone could ever ask for!! Thanks for the 35 years of great memories. Deanne, Collin and Alayna and the entire family have our prayers and deepest sympathy!! Till we meet again my friend, remember its your turn to buy!

  620. Moose. Was one great guy. He was a wonderful classmate and friend. He is with God now and free of all of his earthly problems.
    I realize though how hard it is to let go. Your family has my utmost sympathy.

  621. One of the most genuine guys i’ve met in my life. Always willing to help. You will be sadly missed Lee… aka “the valley” aka “the Gorge” aka Gorgeous! Ill take good care of the yellow snowmobile you sold me!!

  622. Lee, how we will miss your stories, your laughter, your advice, your ideas, your colorful commentary and your larger than life personality. 4th of July and Labor Day weekend will never be the same. We luv you. Luv, hugs, thoughts and prayers to Deann, Collin, Alayna, Uncle Bob, Auntie Brenda, Heather, Jason.

  623. Lee will definitely be missed! So many great times with all of the sporting events…coaching…bonfires…you name it! Glad we were all able to become good friends a well as the kids. Lots of LOVE and HUGS to Deanne…Collin…and Alayna. Fly high Lee!!! <3

  624. I had the pleasure of working with Lee. He was a genuinely great guy and we will miss him. Our thoughts and prayes go out to Deean and the children.

  625. I have so many wonderful memories of this special man; a family friend, my band teacher, father to my friend Paula, and a loving community member who shared his musical gifts with so many. His impact was great. My sympathy to his family, he willl be so missed.

  626. Paul and Thelma were both my favorite teachers. Wonderful mentors that believed in me. They live on not only in the memories and hearts of their family that love them, but also in the many, many they taught in love. God bless.

  627. So sorry to hear of Pastor Peterson’s passing. We were blessed to have him serve as interim pastor at St John’s in Spring Valley while our daughter Kara was in confirmation and at the time our church burned. We were honored to have Carmen and Virginia at our home for celebrations, and so enjoyed them both.
    Our deepest sympathy goes out to Virginia and the rest of the family. Prayers to you all….
    Karen and Earl Gunderson

  628. When I think of Doris I think of beauty, warmth and class. I will miss her welcoming smile at church on Sunday mornings. Rest in peace Miss Doris and know that your family is surrounded by the prayers of many friends at this time of grief and sorrow.

  629. My sincere condolences to the family and friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29). Oh how we long for the time when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-5).

  630. Rich was a kind and gentle soul who will be greatly missed. We had some great conversations over the years and shared a passion for the natural world. I always admired his sense of fairness and positive attitude that was reflected in all he did. The world has truly lost a good man.

  631. Carmen, Was referred to as “Pastor Pete” by my confirmation class at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Atwater, MN. This was in 1973. He was always a kind man who indulged our spirited confirmation class. I am truly sorry for Virginia and the rest of the families loss. May you accept my deepest condolences. Milt Westlund, Jr.

  632. “The Biggest Little Town in Wisconsin,” lost one it’s community Pillars!

    May you Rest In Peace, “Mr. Willink.”

    Condolences and God’s Speed, to the family.

  633. My heart goes out to Virginia and family on the death of Rev. Carmen. May the family find comfort in knowing he is at peace with his heavenly Father. I thought very highly of him while he filled in at Our Savior’s in Amery. Love and healing hugs to your family.

  634. Pastor Carmen was blessed by God to be a blessing to all whom he served in Christ’s Church and the world. As a son of First Lutheran Church, Williston ND, we are blessed to have been a small part of his life in Christ’s mission. Thanks be to God. As you walk through the dark shadows in the valley of death, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Shalom, Rev. Martin Mock, serving as Pastor of First Lutheran Church, Williston

  635. The Gorke family sends our deep sympathies on Carmen’s death. We have many fond memories of his involvement with Campus Community Players and as our pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Marshfield. We wish his loved ones our best at this sad time and as you all renegotiate a world without Carmen’s special presence. He certainly leaves a legacy of goodness and godliness behind. 🌹

  636. My deepest sympathy to Norah and the family as well as his brother Robert and sister Mary and their families.

    Richard was an awesome man and a good friend. My prayers are with you. May he rest in peace.

  637. Whenever I think of the times some 50 years ago when got to visit my grandparents farm in Baldwin , Wisconsin I can see my Aunt Doris and her what seemed like a never ending smile. And with all the kids and animals running around she never seemed to loose that smile . I was amazed. When I visited for Aunt Maxines funeral I instantly recognized her and introduced myself , The look on her face was priceless! Same smile . And as I sit here trying to right this with blurry eyes I see that beautiful face and smile. I just wish I would have lived closer and regret not just taking the time and driving to Baldwin to say hello.

  638. Pastor Carmen was a welcomed visiting Pastor at Trinity Lutheran in Hammond. His message, his spirit, his sense of humor and his voice were such an inspiration. He was a true joy. May God bless his memory.

  639. Sorry to hear about his death. He was an interesting man, and always enjoyed visiting with him, and his stories. May you rest in peace.

  640. Sweet, sweet lady!! Always happy to stop and visit with us whenever she saw us! Beautiful smile, beautiful soul! She leaves a legacy in you, her wonderful family. It was very obvious that she loved and had great pride in each of you She will be gone from your sight, but never your memory; gone from your touch but never your hearts!! Thoughts and prayers are with the whole family and our sincere sympathy as you face the days and years ahead!! We share in your loss and are heartbroken!! Fond memories of times spent with our own mom, Stella and dad, Harland, together again!Hugs and love from Daryl and Susan Frank💞💕🦋

  641. Sorry to hear of the passing of your brother, Sharon Wess (Zezza) and Judy send their sympathies for the whole family.

    Sharon & Judy

  642. So sorry to hear about your mom. I am so glad I got to see her a while back when I was in Hudson. I have such great memories of her and your family back in the day on “Pine Street”. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

  643. Edrys was an amazing woman. I had the honor of sitting with her, holding her hand, and talking to her the day before she passed. I work in the Business Office at CCH, so you would think I don’t have much interaction with the residents. However, I have been able to help out at Pine Ridge many times with meals, with fire drills, with bad weather, with holding hands of residents while we wait for a nurse or family. I had many conversations with Edrys and enjoyed each one. She is missed.

  644. So sorry for your loss Deb, Pam and family. Your Dad sounds like he was a great man, hard worker and very generous through life.

  645. To the Abel Family,

    Please accept my deepest condolences on your loss. I was an ex-field engineer with AP, and had worked with Tom on two projects, known him for 3 years. Tom was a great friend to me. He treated me well since we’ve met. I will never forget that he was the one who taught me how to ride a bike. He was always a vibrant and optimistic person. He will be missed.

    Sincerely,
    Sharon Wong

  646. Dear Hofbauer family,

    Truly lost a great woman inside and out. So sorry for her struggles but glad you took care of her just like she would of wanted. We truly had a great childhood full of memories. Your mom was always an inspiration to me.

    Love, Honda Rider

  647. Dear Abel Family-
    Please accept our sincerest condolences on behalf of LSE Architects. We worked with Tom on the new Webber Park Library. Tom was the heart and soul of the project with his wisdom, incredible sense of humor and friendship. We will miss him very much.

    With sympathy,
    Josh Weinstein and the entire LSE team

  648. So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and Prayers to Mary and family. Did not know Tom for long but you guys were my neighbors on First Street for a brief period and the Wallace family is well know by all who grew up in Hudson. Loved by all. Tom seemed to fit right in. He was friendly, personable and always seemed to have a smile on his face and willing to give a helping hand. God Bless

  649. It was a great pleasure to know Tom. He was a vibrant & out-going person who always had a smile on his face & a willing hand when asked to help. Deepest sympathies to Mary, Tynan Tyler, Tysons, & his many relatives.

  650. I am Barbara and Gene Nelsons daughter. I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember when I was little always doing such fun things with your family. What I remember most is the kindness your dad always showed and his smile. I remember him always smiling. My prayers are with your family through this difficult time.

    Prayers

  651. After going through this similar time with my dad just over a year ago, I know how hard it is say “goodbye” to someone you love so much. However, there is certain type of “peace” in knowing that their struggle is over and they are now a part of heaven. Bruce was so lucky to have such a big family!! OuR prayers and hearts are with all of you!

  652. We’ll miss you Vi😥😥 You have been a really good friend and a important part of our family. It won’t be the same without you.

  653. You all have my sympathy. The death of a loved one causes us deep pain. At Jeremiah 31:13, God has promised, “I will change their mourning into exultation. I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief.” We can look forward to the fulfillment of that promise. Until then, turn to “the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” in prayer. 2 Corinthians 1:3

  654. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to family and friends. May all your good memories outweigh your sadness during this difficult time. (Isaiah 25:8)

  655. Our heartfelt sympathies to Ginny and the family. You were the best neighbors ever, and Dave was always up for anything! We enjoyed our trips up north with you, and learned to love the north because of you. It was always fun to travel with Dave and Ginny; Dave was so tall and he kept track of us, and we could always see him. And Ginny’s laugh was always a great reward! They just don’t make people with a sweeter disposition then our friend Dave’s. We already miss him. Love you all’

  656. ‘As for grief, you’ll find it comes in waves. When the ship is first wrecked, you’re drowning, with wreckage all around you. Everything floating around you reminds you of the beauty and the magnificence of the ship that was, and is no more. And all you can do is float.
    You find some piece of the wreckage and you hang on for a while. Maybe it’s some physical thing. Maybe it’s a happy memory or a photograph. Maybe it’s a person who is also floating. For a while, all you can do is float. Stay alive. In the beginning, the waves are 100 feet tall and crash over you without mercy. They come 10 seconds apart and don’t even give you time to catch your breath. All you can do is hang on and float.
    After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, you’ll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know what’s going to trigger the grief. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything…and the wave comes crashing. But in between waves, there is life.
    Somewhere down the line, and it’s different for everybody, you find that the waves are only 80 feet tall. Or 50 feet tall. And while they still come, they come further apart. You can see them coming. An anniversary, a birthday, or Christmas. You can see it coming, for the most part, and you prepare yourself. And when it washes over you, you know that somehow you will, again, come out the other side. Soaking wet, sputtering, still hanging on to some tiny piece of the wreckage, but you’ll come out. The waves never stop coming, and somehow you don’t really want them to. But you learn that you’ll survive them. And other waves will come. And you’ll survive them too. ”

    Doug seemed to have a zest for life, an unforgettable spirit of fun, and he was courageous soul.
    May the peace and love of God be with you all, Lori and family.
    May the waves be gentle.

  657. Edrys was truly a special person; kind, smart, and thoughtful. I have lots of good memories of her during my youth and in the past few years visiting her both before and after my mother died. I know she was ready to leave this world for a while and am happy for her because of that, but boy, I will miss having her in this world.

    My condolences to the entire family

    Jeanne Bourget

  658. Violet, you will be missed very much. All my love goes with you to Heaven. We had many great years together and many great laughs. Love you very much….Angel

  659. To all of Edrys’s dear family,
    Please know how much you have been in our hearts and thoughts ever since we heard the news that Edrys had passed away. Oh, what a loving presence she has been in our family’s life for so many, many years. What wonderful memories we will cherish. She was a blessing to everyone who knew and loved her and will live on in our lives and hearts.
    Much love, Mary Beth & Gary and Barbara

  660. My condolences to Rich’s family and loved ones. My interactions with Rich began when I was an emergency room patient and he was some type of medical orderly in attendance there decades ago. He literally held my hand and gently let me know that things would be alright,,,they were. Ever after that I found Rich to be true to that initial meeting. Kindness, love of nature and gentle behavior from a gentleman were the hallmarks of what I learned about Rich. We had fun fishing too. Good Man, glad I knew him.

  661. I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Doug’s family. For right now, there’s no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry, or that we forget. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28 which says, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, “… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow. For the Bible’s answers to life’s big questions please visit JW.org.

  662. It is with such sadness that I learned of Edrys’ passing. After we bought her house on Twelve Oaks Lane she and I became friends. It was always a pleasure having her for a lunch or dinner. And she was such a gracious hostess when I visited her at Wintergreen, telling me stories of her travels and her family. We shared a love of chocolate covered orange rind which was a tradition each time I visited her. Edrys was a remarkable woman in her spirit for life and her love for her family and friends. I will truly miss knowing that she is of this world and remember with fondness our times together. My sympathy for you loss.

  663. It was with sadness I heard of the passing of Mrs. Heywood. She held a very special place in my heart because of the very special person she was. She made everyone she met feel as if they were dear to her, and she was truly loved for that. She warranted complete respect and love. Please accept my sympathies.

  664. Your mother has reached an impressive number of years, an age we
    desire. I often think of her friendliness and the way she welcomed me
    in her home full of warmth.

  666. Tom & Liz,
    Extending our thoughts and prayers to you and family on the loss of your Mom. Although we did not know her, knowing you tells me she must have been a great person. Hope your memories of her will be full of smiles and warmth forever.
    Take Care…

  667. Sending so much love to Mr. Johnson’s family. As one of the many students who had Mr. Johnson as our biology teacher, I can attest to the great love and passion he put into teaching about the natural world and its beauty and complexity.

    He inspired me with his creativity as a teacher and his good-natured, calm, and thoughtful way of being. As a teacher at a high school now, I can say that he was one of those who inspired me to give back by becoming a public school teacher. Truly, he is one of those special people in the world who gave us his endless patience, kindness, and curiosity as young people exploring life. I have registered as a bone marrow donor and will be donating to the Friends of the Boundary Waters in his honor. Thank you, Mr. Johnson, you are remembered love and high regard.

  668. A very good and strong man. He was viewed as a faculty leader by all Memorial teachers who were privileged to know him. His passing is very sad news. My sympathies to his family. He was taken too early.

  669. Lori and family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I don’t know what to say but you’ll be in my prayers. I send my love!

  670. Doug was a trooper. He was filled with guts and glory. I am very sorry for your loss and hope that you are able to find comfort in beloved memories.

  671. So sorry for your family loss. He sounded like a great guy, husband, Father, brother. He will always be with you in your hearts. I went to school with Allen.

  672. Lori, Tanner and Kayla — so sorry to learn of Doug’s passing. He fought a hard fight! Enjoy the many great memories you made and let them make you smile!
    Your old neighbors,
    Sandee & Jim

  673. Praying for all of you during your time of loss. Praying that God’s loving arms are wrapped around each of you and that you find comfort in the knowledge that Ray is already in God’s presence.

    Sending the family love and light.

  675. So sorry for your loss. Remember always visiting with Doug when we were out and about. A good friend from the past. May his many memories live on in your hearts. Our sympathy to you all.
