Dear Charles, Ellen, Amy Ann, Elaine, Brenda and families. What a beautiful, happy, fun, kind lady your Mom was. Our family often talks about the fun times we shared with your family! While our parents played Norwegiann whist, the 10 of us were having a good time! I loved tobogganing when we were at your house. Or learning how to play Rummy from Ellen. Not sure if she ever told us all of the rules! There was always lots of laughter! So, enjoy all of the good memories your Mom provided you with! Hugs to all of you!!

I will remember your mother as a smiley person with a big heart. The whole group of Nelson and Lorenson kids had such fun tobogganing and playing monopoly at your place. Your Mom always fed us before we left for home. I remember the years that she spent living at the Elk Point lodge. It was a comfort for Mom to have her there.
