  1. Mary Heidebrecht :

    I am so sorry that I cannot attend Erna’s farewell. My thoughts have gone back to the many things John said about his younger sister Erna. They had so much fun growing up. John pushing her down the hay loft or coming home from work and beginning the sibling pranks. At times this included their mom as stories have been told of water fights with her. Erna was filled with laughter but could be feisty when necessary.

    You will miss your mom but I’m sure she will be visiting with her big brother John. Our prayers are with Len as he is now alone.
