  • Herbie and family, we are so terribly sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this difficult time. - Posted by: Daryl Richter (Cousin) on: Oct 17, 2018

  • I grew up in Dacotah and spent many days at the Weidman's farm as that was originally my great grandparents place I believe. But I remember helping Mrs. Wiedman with some household chores and the talks we had. I know my dad spent lots of time visiting with them as well. So many happy memories there. I'm so sorry for the families loss - Posted by: Linda Goldsborough (old neighbour) on: Oct 17, 2018
