Aunt Marge and Uncle Buck were always such good, solid people, and I was sorry to hear of Marge's passing. When I would visit my grandma and grandpa when I was young, I was always happy if it included a chance to see the happy go-lucky Uncle Buck and his generous bride. And in their later years, I was lucky enough to have a few dinners with Grandma and the brothers and sisters that always included Buck and Marge of course. It was truly special and moving to see how tender and caring our elders were and are. The patience with one another and the love they passed around was really something to witness, a privilege, truly. My condolences to the Ring clan. God be with you in your time of mourning. Love and prayers, Sue from Sioux Falls
I remember going to Buck and Marge's when ever we went to see grandma. We would go to the house, have dinner, and then we would make ice cream with Buck. My brother and I would have to take turns turning the crank, while the other one would be on the tire swing. When I told grandma that I wanted to learn how to quilt, it was Marge who taught me. She will be deeply missed. My sympathy to all.
I remember your mom and dad always doing things together. Praise the Lord now they are together again. I still have hanging on my wall the post card (wooden frame) of old Trinity Lutheran Church your father gave me many years ago. I will always cherish it. Know that our prayers and thoughts are with you in the days to come Sincerely, Pam and Roger Heiden
