Mrs. Guntert & E.G. My Dad Bill told us about his friendship with Emil and the good times they had when they were younger. Dad always considered Emil a close friend. My sympathies for your loss.

From Gary Tollefson...

I was really saddened to read of Emil’s passing. I remember him well from the bowling alley and when he and dad and Dick George were bowling together. He was always the center of laughter, and fun. May you find the peace that passes all understanding, found only in the heart of God, through His Son, Jesus Christ. Gary Tollefson
