Not sure what to say?

I was so saddened to hear about your dad / husband today as I listened to the First Lutheran church on TV. I did not see the obituary. What a wonderful man he was...heaven is a much sweeter place with him there to help everyone with all of their projects! My deepest sympathies. I feel very bad that I was not able to be at the funeral to see all of you. Please let me know when you are in Sioux Falls...I would love to connect with you. Hugs to all of you but I KNOW your faith assures you of...

Herb and Dorothy have been amazing mentors in my life since we moved to Sioux Falls. We are in Denver with family but close in spirit and God's presence. Phyllis Hanson

I want to extend to you and your family my sympathy for the passing of your father. He must have been an incredible man and role model to you all. I look at all the people of his generation and how selfless they were to their families and community. I worry that not enough of us take up the mantle of volunteerism and generosity of heart. I am so happy that you are on the Red Wing Arts board and are carrying the tradition forward.

Bless you and your loved ones.
