    With sympathy to Allen, Evonne and Beverly. I went to see my grandfather on Thanksgiving and peeked into Margaret’s room, and she was not there. I suppose she was celebrating Thanksgiving with all of you. Your mother will be greatly missed by all.

    Sorry for your loss. On behalf of Mom, Dad, the rest of our family and myself. We extend our sympathies.

    Mom and Dad are not healthy enough to make the trip to Fargo to attend the funeral. They wish they could be there.

    I will always remember her laugh and great sense of humor!

    It was very hard for you, Mom. I am sorry you had to suffer so much. You are at peace and with God now. An angel was at your 308B door at Bethany Cares II, third floor, when I came to finish getting your things, I think, yesterday. It was Alice Eisner. I know God sent her so I would not have to be alone. It was so very nice to just have her there and she helped me too. She is a very nice lady. I will visit her some time. God took you home with him. I will, already do, miss you and all those phone calls. My love, Bev

    Orting WA. I loved coming over to Aunt Margaret’s house when we were kids because she had an indoor bathroom. Also for all the good food she would have. We will miss and have missed her at the Johnsrud reunions.

    Love to all Harley

    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. It’s always tough to lose a parent no matter how long you’ve been fortunate enough to have them.

    BEVERLY AND FAMILY—

    ALTHOUGH I NEVER MET YOUR MOM I REALIZE THE HEART ACHES INVOLVED IN LOSING ONE SO IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIVES.

    I LOST MY MOM 2 YEARS AGO AT 90 AND OUR ENTIRE FAMILY HAS REALIZED THE LOSS AND DO HAVE VISITS JUST TO KEEP US CLOSE AS SHE WOULD’VE LIKED, AND WE ENJOY JUST TALKING OVER OLD MEMORIES.

    GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
