So sorry for your loss George, Diane and family. Your family was the best of friends. I remember working in the fields with George when I was a young boy and Pat always had lunch waiting for us. I remember babysitting for them also. We will say prayers for you and let Pat rest in peace. God Bless you all.
I was saddened when I saw Pat’s notice. I worked with her at People’s State Bank for two summers before heading to the Twin Cities. It was a great group of co-workers. Thoughts to her family members.
