I can’t believe the Reimers family had to go through so much pain in such a short time and I’m very sorry I missed it. I’ll be close to the Reimers with my prayers.

Dear Family of Laverne, I knew your father because I worked at the FSA office in Osage from 1982 to 1993, then moved on to become a manager of FSA. What a gentleman he was! May he rest in peace. Julie Niess Vulk
