The family of Donna Rabe would like to thank everyone who attended her 90th Birthday Party in July.  She had a great day and enjoyed visiting with you all.  Thank you all so much for making her day so special.  Unfortunately, Donna became ill and passed away shortly after her birthday.  We want to thank everyone for their prayers, food, flowers, gifts and cards during this difficult time.  Special thanks go to Pastor Melanie, Tim and Tana Mundwiler, the church ladies for serving the lunch and also the staff at OAHS and Fairway View for their compassion and care.  We have great health care facilities in Ortonville and we are so thankful for all of them.  Donna was definitely “one of a kind” and will be greatly missed.  Blessed be her memory.

I would like to thank everyone who remembered Delhart at the time of his passing. A special thank you to Dr. Bob Ross, the staff at Fairway View and Northridge, Mundwiler Funeral Home, Craig Danielson for providing transportation, and Pastor David Tonn and First English Lutheran Church for the special service. Delhart had many wonderful friends who helped make his life full. Thank you for caring.

A special thank you to Wes Herberg for talking me into finally going to a Chiropractor. I said I would never go to one. Secondly, thank you to Dr. Chance Haugen for fixing a problem I had been having for five months. It took only one treatment to take the pain level down more than half and get my arm moving again without problems.  After three treatments, I don’t even remember how bad it was. I am leaving for Texas with full use of my arm. Thank you again, both of you. Next time I will be at Big Stone Chiropractic Health Center seeing Dr. Haugen before things get out of hand.
