Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
The children of old friends, Verner and Dorothy Norlund, (Rainy River) wish to extend to Gaylene, Debbie, and family their deepest condolences in the passing of their dad. Ed will always be fondly remembered, a wonderful man, for his sense of humor and great letter writing to our parents. Ed always kept in touch! He stopped by for visits many times over the years. We became friends with his children, Glen & Debbie, and Susan bears Gaylene’s name. Our parent’s friendship is one to be admired! Ed will be reunited now with loved ones! Rest In Peace Ed.
