We smile with our memories of crazy ol' Al & Hazel and how much we enjoyed our visits with you both each trip home to Mitchell. You have meant so much to our family over the years. I'll never forget marching with the MHS band in a parade in Brookings, and there was Al waving and supporting me from the sidelines. You were both always there for mom, too, and for that I will be forever be grateful. Thank you. Please publish the memorial service date and time when arranged. We would love to attend.

Hazel you have our deepest sympathy - I can briefly remember
Albert as I was small when we left S.D. I remember Del and
Ethel well. They lived east of us on a farm, and was there
several times. Del had a brown and white mule team, and I
have a picture of Del with white mule. In the obit I see where
you and Albert were married at Geneva, N.Y. I have a daughter
at Greene, NY. and it is cold there. Willis Strong, PO Box 275,
