    Dewey OKPaul, my sympathies to you in the loss of your dad and to all the family as well. I have many, many great & fun memories of your folks as they were the best of friends with my folks, Joe & JoAnn Engen. I remember all of you out at our farm, and also remember all the times we stopped at your house in town. I know we spent times at the lake more than once. I am pretty sure your dad and my dad’s friendship started when they were boys. Now the four of them are together again and laughing & reminiscing the good times over a cold beer!
    Rest in Peace Haakon, you were a good man! Take care Paul!

    Sandy Lake MBI have fond memories of visiting Delores and Haakon when they lived in South Fargo. Then when I was old enough to go to the VFW I have more fond memories of visiting with them on a more adult level. I am sure there is a reunion of sorts going on in the great beyond, as I know Mom and Dad always enjoyed spending time with them.
