On Wednesday, March 26, 2008, Hospice of the Red River Valley Chaplain Karin Moberg walked into her office and found a package lying on her desk that contained a special CD.


On the disk was recorded just one song. The words to the song, called simply "The Mosquito Song," were authored by Lake Park native Loren Lindstrom, and had been set to music and recorded by Akeley musician Fran Gack.
