MessageYour Mom always had a smile and was ready to share a cup of coffee with our Mom, Marilys. They had such good fellowship even into their latter days. We do not always understand the pain and loss of our Moms but we trust that God's way is perfect. With deepest sympathy.

MessageAs we age, the visits to nursing homes become a priority and attending the funeral of friends more frequent. I’ve concluded that the better way to manage this period is to reflect on what good the Lord has brought to these lives and the extended families…. Art and Maurine had a great few years together ministering to each other in ways that fit this period of their lives. I was blessed by consulting positions that allowed me to be in/out of Minot and share time with them. For that, I thank the Lord. They both now rest comfortably in the Lord’s presence for which we can all be eternally grateful. Jim Wolf

Message"A mother gives us life and teaches us how to live it. Her love will always be a part of all we are." Your mother was truly a kind, loving soul that gently touched everyone who knew her. She was such a blessing in my dad's life. Know you will miss her but also know you have many wonderful memories of her to recall and remember.
