I will also always remember visiting the homestead back in 2004 when he showed us his hogs, more a hobby than anything else as I know how much he cared for them. I remember climbing into the pen and being surrounded by noisy, inquisitive pigs with Uncle looking on as us city kids enjoyed the company of those wonderful animals. These are two of my favorite photos of him, the one with my son as the two of them were walking along the path towards the pen.
We send much love to our family in North Dakota and to those who live in other States, which includes my dear father-in-law who was very close to his brother, our deepest sympathy for their loss. He will always be with us in these wonderful memories we have of him and forever in our hearts.
