    Nancy, Steve and families,
    I am so sorry to hear your dad passed away. He made the best wrought iron railings and clothes line poles. He had a great sense of humor, too. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Ferne Peterson

    You have my condolences. Cy was an attendent at our wedding along with his
    wife, Mildred. I’m sorry I am not able to attend the services.

    Steve & family – you are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. I don’t believe I had met your dad before he came to Elim but thoroughly enjoyed visiting with him. With a clear memory, he reminisced about people and places from years gone by in Buffalo, even remembered my Grandpa who was born in 1905. May you feel God’s presence and work in your lives in the coming weeks and months. Sincerely, Todd Lundeen

    p.s. What a surprise it was for me when I heard Cy was coming to Elim as Steve and I were classmates for a number of years in school.
