Dear Gene, I have so many great memories of you and have wondered many times when I have come to Faribault, if by chance I would happen to run into you, always hoping I would. My heart goes out to you especially now at this sad time.. It's a new chapter in ones life, but because we know our loved one is now at peace, it goes quite well. Aren't we thankful for our families. God has wonderful plans for all of us. I looked for your address in the phone book but to no avail so am going the email route. Just know I'm thinking of you and that many of your friends care. One of your Kenyon friends, Gladys Barsness
Gene and family: I was saddened to hear about Ed's death. He was always such a "gentle" man and a joy to talk to. Not only will he be missed by you, his family, but by so many others too. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I am so sorry to learn of Ed's death and so happy that I got to visit with him at the wonderful first cousin reunion at Perkins last fall. You have my deepest sympathy. God Bless - Lila D.
