Dear Inglis Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Orville was a wonderful man. Visiting with him at North Border was special, especially enjoyed seeing him at the puzzle table. His sense of humor was ever present. Our families go back many years with lots of wonderful memories. You are all in my prayers. Janis Eagan Gustafson
