Not sure what to say?

Dear Betsey and John,
Warm memories of both your Mom and Dad always come to mind as I remember our many summers spent at Luanna on Gull Lake. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Cacky

Betsy and John,
I am so sorry Jack is no longer here with us. Time with him always brought back my dad to me too. You must miss both your mom and dad terribly. I loved your parents too. As my godparents, they were always very special to me.

I got such a kick out of the stories your dad would tell once my dad had died - he spilled all of (well probably only a few of) the tales of their junior high and high school antics. The best was hearing they both skipped over a month...

Dear Betsy and John, What a great time we've all had together. So many fantastic memories with the Eastmans and Lyman's. No regrets. We loved them both and life was good. Treasure your happy memories, as I do. My love to you both. Aunt Cynthia

Betsy, I just read of your dad's passing. I am so sorry to hear of this terrible loss and I send my sympathy to you and your entire family.

I am saddened to hear of Jack's passing. The Eastman's were great neighbors and friends. I visited Jack in October and he was a delight to spend time with. My thoughts and prayers go out to Betsy as she continues to be his rock in life and now in death.

Like father, like son. Yes, John we have to get up at 4am and get to the duck blind to get the "right" spot! Or else we'll go home duck less! Ok dad

Jack was my mother's (Grayce Engquist Laughlin) first cousin. I remember Jack and Anne very well and their 2 "little" kids. Jack and Anne came to visit us often when we lived in Deephaven and Vinehill. I remember them as so kind and sweet. Grayce's mom was Ruth Carlson Engqist, younger sister of my aunt "Madge" (Mabel). Mom spent many, many summers at One Eye in Brainerd during her teen years. I am the oldest child of Grayce and Chuck, so I remember very well Hattie,...
