Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you at this time.  We wish we could be there, but are unable to make it this time.  Both of your parents were great people.  We enjoyed all of the time we got to spend with them on their trips to Wyoming and our trips back to Minnesota to visit.  I know they are dancing together in heaven now and drinking coffee with all of their friends.  Love to you all!

My heart goes out to all of the Reiter family.  Louie was a great man and will be missed by all, sorry for your loss.  It was a privilege to know him.  Louie and Rosemary are reunited again, god bless from the Aug's in Two Harbors, MN.
