Please accept our deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved father, Sig. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this sad time. May he Rest in Peace with our lord and savior.
We are sorry to hear about Sig. We just got home from our oldest sons grad. from college at Bozeman, so this is a little late. We would have liked to have made it to the funeral, even though it is a long way, but we are planning a trip to Minn. I remember the hunting trips that Sig took the boys on when I first met them all at our ranch years ago. He and Darrell came out when we built our shop and wired it. I have fond memories of the trips they made here. They also wired our calving shed and machine shed. We would have liked to have been able to see all of you again.
Sincerely, Chester and Rona
So sorry for your loss. What a lot of memories.
I remember Sig as our neighbor way back in the 60’s. He would come to our house with cigar in hand to bring smelt for our family that we ate for days and days!
