Condolences

The family of Steven L. Goblirsch has received the following condolences.

Sorry to hear about Steven's passing. I always wondered what happened to him after graduation. I'm a fellow '68 classmate. He was very good football player. I'll never forget his senior year's team. Undefeated 9-0 and ended up ranked third in Catholic schools. My deepest sympathy to his family and all the Goblirsch relatives. Alot of them that I know. My prayers are with you today and always.  Warren Cook.      Merry Christmas to you all and remember now his suffering is done. And he's with Our Lord in Heaven.

To Annette,  I am so sorry to read this.  God has taken way too many angels this year.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Sorry to hear of Steve's passing. We were both classmates at Sleepy Eye St Mary's. We always enjoyed him both in sports and in school. His family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Annette and family, we are so sorry for your loss.


We are thinking of all of you and praying for you.
