To the Editor:

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who said a prayer, brought food, gave a hug, sent a card, and remembered our family in so many ways during this past couple of weeks, as well as the last few years.

You all showed up when we needed you. Mike would be so happy that you were looking after us.

Special thanks to Pastor Ryan Stout, those serving lunch, the music by Janel and Heidi, the VFW and Karvonen’s Funeral Home for their guidance and compassion as we celebrated Mike’s life.

Thanks also to the medical staff at the New York Mills, Wadena, and Mayo clinics and hospital for their excellent care.


“What a wonderful world!”
