  1. My condolences to the Ellenson family. Mere words cannot take away the sadness that comes from the loss of one so dear to you. So I hope that you will find a measure of comfort in remembering all the good your father (and mother too) brought into your lives, leaving you happy memories that can never be taken away. In God’s loving care, they now rest. John 5:28, 29; Psalm 37:29

  2. So sorry for your loss. He was a great man and friend . I always enjoyed going to page and seeing him at work.

  3. Such fond memories of you from high school Gordy. Although we live many miles apart,we connected on Facebook. Condolences to his family as I knew how much they meant to him. A man with many great qualities.

  4. From Doreen Decker, LaVerne and Margie Schelske,
    We attended the funeral service on line and I have to say the music was very touching. The
    speaker was very good, she was able to personalize the words she spoke. It was great to
    have someone who actually knew Bop, who really spoke with him and the family give encouraging
    words to us all. Our prayers and hearts are with the whole family! May God bless you in this sad
    time and lift you up when you think you will see him again in heaven!
