  6. Julie and I send our deepest sympathies to the entire family. I have such wonderful memories from my youth of the annual family canoe trip on the Crow Wing & time at the cabin on Leaf Lake. I remember one especially painful sunburn and Lila “mothering” me as she applied aloe vera to my badly burned back & shoulders. Lila always made sure Greg & I were well fed after a long afternoon of water skiing with Frank/Dad (he always had time for another lap around the lake). Lila was truly a gift to all of us that had the privilege to know her.
