    Lois and Family: I just saw this in the Moville Record and was so sorry to it. My thoughts go out to you and all of your family. I remember Wally from our wonderful school days and when you got married. Please email me at the email given here. May GOD be with you all at this time. JoAnn Hunwardsen — I lost Earl 1 yr. and 3 mos. ago when he passed on Christmas morning. I didn’t know if you knew that or not.
