    Prayers to your family….we will surely miss seeing Mentor at the Class of ’49 Reunion for Clarkfield this fall.
    He was such a wonderful person and our Class Valedictorian. He will always be counted as a good friend!

    Hi This is Gordie Rosengren. I sent a card to Mentors address but it was returned. I am glad that I was able to see Mentor one more time. Jessie my granddaughter brought me to see him after I heard he broke his leg. He was in a lot of pain that day so we did not stay ling,I used to visit Mentor and Donna when they lived across the street and in the Grammy Bldg. How life can change. I totaled my car last fall so I no longer drive. Age sure changes us as my health has been declining for the last few years myself.
    My thoughts go out to all of the family. You had wonderful parents and it was my pleasure to know them both.
    The best to you all,
    Gordon O Rosengren
