  1. Grand Haven michiganSally called me last night about your Dad’s passing, she saw it in the Bismarck Tribune. My sympathies to all of you. Your parents were so good to me.I spent alot of time at their kitchen table. Your Dad would tell his stories about his life, and the most recent jokes he heard at the club. He was a good guy. I miss your Mom too, she was my good buddy. Gosh, just thinking of her-those good homemade rolls and kuchen she used to make and share with me-YUM! They both loved you all so much. Always talked so fondly about all of you. Miss you all-Sue Martinez

    Dear Indergaard Family,
    We were saddened to read of John’s death. Our children, especially Ian, had a lot of very fun times with Grandpa John and Grandma Hilda. I remember being surprised to learn her name was Hulda-she let us all say it wrong!! John had that smile that was always there and there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or so it seemed. I still live in the neighborhood and think of them everytime I drive or walk past the house. They were wonderful people and really special adopted grandparents. We just wanted you to know we are thinking of all of you. I would have sent a card but I have no address for any of you. Take care. Barb and Russ Emery and family
