We send our sympathies to the family. We were good friends through nursing school and she and Al were in our wedding. We lost touch over the years but never forgot her.
Also so sorry for your loss of your Dad. We didn't know he had passed away. We visited him in Florida and he came here one summer.
All of us had a lot of fun together in Mankato. Wishing you peace and healing on your losses.
