I enjoyed selling real estate with Jack at DeForrest Malstrom Realty. Jack had a great laugh. And that along with his appearance reminded me so much of my deceased father. June, it was a pleasure speaking with you last week. When we get back to Fargo, maybe we can get together. Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. Deb Jacobs;
