    Our sympathy and condolences to you all on the passing of your Dad, Zane. We are so glad we were able to visit him in Hillsboro last summer. There were some memories shared of Stigen / Carl and Adeline Aamold friendship days. We are glad to hear he had Hospice support and comfort in his final days. We will not be able to attend the Celebration of his Life Saturday, but we will be in thought and prayers for you all. Curt and Sandy.
