    Fargo N.d.My condolences to the Ohnstad family. When Harvey was a young teenager, one of his best friends was my hubby Mickey Holler also of Argusville. We have known the family for many years and also a friend of Arnies. God bless you all. She was a good friend.

    I remember standing in the middle of the street between our homes in the dark looking up to the sky looking for sputnick’s. Millie & my mother were with me & we alway’s saw them. That is just one of the memories I have of your mother. My condolences to Dan, Vernie, & Pam.
