Gloria and Carol So sorry to see that you lost your Mom. Please know that you are in my thoughts and hope God will guide you thru the journey you have ahead. Haven't seen either one of you for so long - I hope that you and your families are doing well!! Hugs to you both!! Sue
My deepest sympathy to all of you. Being Christians, we have the comfort of knowing Marie is with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have fond memories while growing up during our childhood when your family, Marvin and Martha Wegner, and the Blume family took us on our yearly fishing trip to Lake Kitchie (Sp?). This happened a number of years as I remember and looking back, these were such carefree, joyful and memorable times; I often think about them. I am sorry I didn't get to her visitation or funeral service. It would be fun to see you all again. May God give you comfort during this sorrowful time, Howard Blume 45458 561st Ave New Ulm, MN 56073
Carol and Lois, sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Bruce Degen
