“Colby, Jon, Jeff and Dick's entire family,
My mother, Beatta, will be heart-broken to hear your dad passed away. Mom asked me to call him not long ago and so glad I did. He left us with more happy memories! Mom and Dad always enjoyed visiting with your dad - a few years ago in the park in Storm Lake on the 4th of July. Sending all of you our deepest sympathy. Ann”
