My sympathies to Sherri and Dwight. Both your mom and dad were great people! I remember your dad helping me learn to ride horse back in the day. He loved working with horses. I saw your folks a lot when visiting at Gjelleriet's. Our families go way back. Blessed be their memory.

My sympathies go out to the family. My dad (George Brustad) and I went and visited Harris a few years ago at the Hatton home. Dad and Harris reminisced about their days with the horses and down at the Rockin
R Ranch. You could see in their faces that it was a time they both enjoyed. I know my dad was there to welcome Harris HOME along with his family.
