Memories

I remember how kind both Mary Ann and Herb were to me. They took several of Holly's friends (myself included) to away basketball games to watch Faribault Falcons play and see their son Randy as a part of the team. They were wonderful people to know. I am saddened by Mary Ann's passing but know the Lord of us all has accepted her home to Him. A new angel is looking down on us from heaven. God bless this family and give them peace.

Memories

I attended McKinley school in the sixty's and I have such fond memories of your mother working there. All the kids just adored her. She was so friendly and often comforted us when we were not feeling well or scared. She was a dear sweet lady. The world would be a much better place if there were more people like her! May she rest in peace. God's blessings to all of you.

I just wanted to say that my thoughts and prayers are with the family. I know that as we (the class of 68) age, our parents are aging and facing their final days here on earth. It is good to keep in touch and to remember those who go before us. Peace with all of Mary Ann's family. God bless you and keep you Kathi

Memories

It is with great saddness that I read of your mom's passing. I always enjoyed talking with/to your parents. I own a picture of Herb, Weasy, Hockey, and my dad in a bus getting ready for deer hunting. Please know that another little piece of my heart died as we slowly lose the people from this wonderful generation. Take care!
