  1. Trom family, I send my condolences and a beautiful scripture of God’s loving care for us during such difficult times, Psalms 34:18.

  2. Thornton CODear Doris,

    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of George. He was one of my dad’s, Carl, favorite friends. I remember talking to George when I was about 4 or 5 years old. We always went over to visit with him when he was in town visiting Cy and Grace. Like all of the Troms, he always had a smile waiting for his friends.
