    Renate and family

    We are sending our deepest sympathies for the loss of Ed. Dan enjoyed his years of working with Ed. He was an honest hardworking man and always did his job to the best of his ability. We are unable to join in to share memories as we are out of the state. Please know our thoughts are with you. Dan and Joyce Malterud

    Dear Kenny and family:
    So sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. Your family was a big part of our childhood. I always remember how your dad stacked his wood pile like a perfection. I also remember that big boom when his wood pile fell. I think you guys were the only one’s in the neighborhood that had a paved drive way so we could play basketball.
