Lots of fond memories of Luverne spending time at our farm through his work with DHIA. As a child, I loved how he would take the time to let me name all the cows for the records. As an adult, I enjoyed the many hours working with him and Betty at church. I know my Mom was one of the first to welcome him to heaven, and I'm sure they are busy making all sorts of wood projects to paint and stain. Out families thoughts and prayers are with you all.
