I have many memories of Lawrence and Dolores as they were our neighbors near Osseo for 9 years of my life. Lawrence always had a million dollar smile for me and told me some story of when I was a "little girl. " The last time we visited in the Assisted Living in Faribault he was just as bright as could be. We are sorry to hear of his death and know you will miss his quick wit and sharp mind. He and your mom came to our wedding in 1966 in Buckman <mn, and Lawrence and Dolores both are on a couple of pictures in our wedding book. Good memories! I remember the morning that their barn burned down. It was quite early and I still had my pajamas on so I just quickly put my jeans on over them and ran across the fields to your house to get in on the action. Your dad and mine(Truman) did custom silo filling together in the fall. That was always a very busy time. but your dad was a worker. I'm not sure if he ever walked, I think he always semi-ran. Our deepest sympathy to you all. If at all possible I will be at the internment on Sunday. Judy Terhaar

I recall very clearly picking milk up at your family's farm in Maple Grove on Sunday mornings when I relief hauled for Ken Kalk on the Burshville Coop route. When I arrived for the milk pick up, Lawrence and the kids were all still in the milk house finishing up morning chores. By the time I left ten minutes later with Lawrence loudly encouraging everyone to hurry up, the whole crew was in the car beating me out the drive-way headed for church! I also recall Lawrence's valient comeback following a stroke when he served as chairman of St. John's Congregation. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Fred P.
