Diane, Pam and Dave, sorry I couldn't attend your Moms funeral but I (we) had to be in Devils Lake to take care of a couple of grand kids for the weekend. Jim

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. We can remember when Amy came to Borg with her children to visit my Father and your Mother was always excited to see our grandchildren. Cherish the memories that you have with your Mother and Grandmother.

Diane, I am certain that you do not remember me as many years have passed since the days that your parents visited my aunt & uncles in Bathgate and Pembina, ND. The names of my aunts & uncles were Herman & Evelyn Thom, and Harold & Phyllis Tisdale. I always liked your parents as they were so friendly and very attractive. The picture of your mom on this obituary is very nice. I am sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Carol Lunde Olson
