CARD of thanks

Thank you to all who so kindly and whole-heartedly stepped in to help us during our time of sorrow following the loss of our dad, Gene Nelson.  Our special heart-felt thanks to Pastor Dave and all the members of First English that lovingly stepped forward to greatly assist us with the funeral and the provision of lunch for everyone afterwards; to Kathy Haukos, Ronda Sellin and Brent Zahrboch for their beautiful gift of music shared during the service; to Tim and Kari at Mundwiler-Larson Funeral Home for seamlessly orchestrating everything from Colorado to Minnesota; and to all our beloved friends and family in Minnesota, especially Big Stone County, for your comforting presence at the visitation and funeral, the comforting words, and the outpouring of sympathy cards, flowers, and memorial gifts.  “Home” was always Big Stone County for our dad!  A special expression of gratitude to Sid and Jen Randleman for making arrangements for a place for us all to stay together in Ortonville, coming from all corners of the country.

Thank you to the Ortonville Independent and the Ortonville and Big Stone City merchants for the wonderful Christmas gift of scrip money.  My heart skipped a beat when I heard my name called. I have been having a lot of fun shopping locally to spend it.
