  1. Jeannie and family, we are sorry for your loss. I'll never forget the fun conversations and stories Emmett and Abbie would share on our visits or the weekends they would go to Reno for Indian bowling. I never missed an opportunity to stop by when I was in town.
    Even after moving back here, it was good to hear from him and retell those old stories.
    Somehow our conversations always ended on wild rice.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Jason, Jessica, Jasper and Abigail Loons
