My sympathies to the family. I am the daughter of (the late) Elsworth Brekke. When I was young we visited often with Tena and Andrew Jacobson--two of my favorite 'great' aunt and uncles. Peace be with you.

I remember nothing but kindness in delivering papers to the Morris Jacobson house in my younger years...4th grade...Class Act.

Claudia, I noticed the obituary of your Dad in the Grand Forks Herald. It is always hard to lose a parent. I hope you and your family are well. (Paul Mueller, you would remember me from East Grand Forks Tech school)
