    West Fargo I am sorry that I was not able to attend either the visitation or funeral service of Mr. Lisburg as I have the flu. I brought him communion on Sundays from Blessed Sacrement and I always enjoyed our visits and his talk of life on the farm and the importance of family. He shared photos of family members and told me stories about each photo. He was proud of his family and that he farmed. I told him with all those girls he probably was kept busy. He told me that he and the boy had to go out in the fields at times to get away from the girls. He laughed about that. May the thoughts and prayers being sent to you during this difficult time help. May Mr. Lisburg rest in peace.

    We lost a great man and a big part of my childhood, back when times were simple i recall Bernard and Dad (Paul) watching us kids wrestle in the front yard and recall the laughter and joy the two of them were getting watching there kids. Bernard will be missed

    Sending prays and comforting thought to the entire Lisburg family.
    Though I haven’t seen Bernard in quite sometime, a smile always crosses my face when his name comes up. He always made me giggle growing up. The rides to CCD with Beanie when he drove were always memberable. His little hissing laugh always was worth a laugh even if you were not in on the joke.
    Take care to all
