Hello Doug and family, One of my favorite memories of your wife/mother is the day she and Doug came over to my folks house when my brother Jerry was killed in a auto accident. It was typical of Alta to do something and she brought over bread, butter, cheese and meat and my dad asked her if she had made it fresh from home and she said " why of course" it was all still in the Cash Wise bag . They all laughed heartly, She always enjoyed visiting with my parents and they certainly enjoyed her and Doug, all the years that they were members at Trinity Lutheran in Medford. When I saw she passed away. I knew my folks would meet her at Heavens gate. God bless you all. Nancy and family
