    Scott and Grant,

    Sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. She was a great home maker and I have many good memories from the times I came to visit or sleep over. Remembering lunches and dinners around the dining room table in Valley City bring back a smile. I also always liked how she would give you heck when we she caught the both of us doing something wrong. Janis and I have you in our prayers.

    My sincere condolences to Lyle, Grant, Scott, and the entire Archer family. As a friend of Grant’s for over 40 years, I got to know Lyle and Sybil. They were such nice people and even opened their home to one time when I was doctoring in Fargo nearly 40 years ago. Sybil was a classic lady whose friendliness and warm personality. May she rest in peace.

    Archer Family,
    I just read that Sybil had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. She and my mother were such great friends, and I always enjoyed visiting with her when I got home to Valley City. She was such a kind and caring woman and treasured her family. Sybil was always so positive in her approach to things. She was a wonderful friend, mother, and wife. She was a cutie. Keep all of your memories close. Love you all.
