    Dale, Glenn and Families: sending our sincere condolences in the loss of your Dad. You’ve dealt with a heavy load this year with the loss of both your folks. Perhaps though Ed especially just wanted to be with Shirley – a broken heart. We’ll remember them as our good neighbors, installers of good carpet in our house and always a friendly hello passing by.

    Sincerely,
    Rob and Pat Biswanger

    Glen and Dale,

    So sorry for your loss. I recall our dog chasing your cat into your house. A great deal of yelling later your dad appeared chasing the dog out of the house.
