    Jan we never had the privilege to meet your dad but just from being your friend I have no doubt that he was great man. Especially the fact that he was Norwegian.
    I’m sorry that we can’t share his memories with you with my being on a job out of town.
    We miss you and hope that you can now get some rest knowing that your loved one is in a better place.
    Wally & Phyllis

  4. Jan, we are sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. We never had the opportunity to meet him but knowing you we know he was a great man. Especially the fact he was Norwegian that’s more than enough. Sorry that we cannot share your memories of him, with me being out of town working
    Hope you can now get some rest knowing that he is in a much better place.
    Wally & Phyllis
