Dear Ken and Marcia, and Jerry and Cathy, I was sad to hear of your Mom's passing. Even though I had not seen her for many years, her loving smile and always pleasant greeting has stayed with me. I see that she was blessed many times over not only with children, but with grandchildren and great grandchildren. Thank you for the beautiful picture of your Mom and Dad. Ken and Jerry, It also brings back great memories of your grandma and grandpa, Bob and Helen. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family members. Love, Charles

Dear Ken and Jerry, I was so saddened to read of your mom’s passing. It is hard for me to believe that she was 92. Her youthful nature and continuous smile are forever fixed in my memory. I loved that our parents shared a special friendship long after we lost touch. You have my deepest sympathy.

Woody and Louise put their heart and soul into building the Harney Community, as members of: St. Paul's Lutheran Church, and the Harney Volunteer Fire Company, Inc., and the Harney VFW and (the early years) of the Harney Baseball team and field. Woody has been greatly missed since his passing in 2010, just as Louise will be greatly missed now. Kenny and Jerry and families, you have our heart felt sympathy, may God pour out his blessings on all of you. Woody and Louise have left some big shoes to fill in Harney.
