My Dear Rena, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. I remember when working with you at Cedar Ridge in Mosinee, you mentioned what a wonderful husband he was and you felt so lucky to have him. Rena, I hope you are doing alright during these trying times. Thinking of you dearly, Carollyn

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. David said he has fond memories of their dear hunting group back in the 60's. He has a picture hanging in his shop of the group when they filled up all of their tags and got a red fox as well. Again, sorry to hear about Hugh!

I am very sorry for your loss. Hugh was a high school classmate of mine. I purchased my first car from Hugh. It was a 1940 Ford with a leopard skin covered dash.
