Dear Setterstrom Family,
Thank you so much for your wise and caring gift in Brent's name that brought the "Pure Performance" program to Northfield's high school athletes, coaches, staff, parents and community members. This information was needed, enlightening and will make a difference as our community continues to move forward with broad, consistent information and action to help keep our young people healthy and safe.

Larry told me after we left the Schmeichel's on Saturday and I did not know before then. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you all.

Setterstrom Family,

Setterstrom Family-

I'm extremely sorry for your loss of such an extraordinary individual. I had the honor of knowing Brent during my time at UWSP.

Keith, Vicky, Ryan, Chad, Mark and family -

His presence will be deeply missed but his memory will never be forgotten. Again, my...
