So sorry for your loss. Sharing a favorite verse from Psalm 34 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted. May you feel His nearness as you deal with the loss of your Mom. I am home on the family farm now. Wish I could be there. May God give you His peace. Gail Ancelin nee Mohning.

I am sorry to hear of a former friend of Merrill. Delores was in Tops with me when I lived in le Mars. she was also at the United Methodist church. I remember one time I rode my bike all the way to Merrill from Le Mars. Delores wouldn't hear of me riding on Highway 75 home-- so she loaded my bike and me in her van. Delores loved a good joke with a hearty laugh. I'm sure she will be missed in the community. I shall be in prayer for her loved ones, and friends
