December 05, 2017

dear Mrs Jones, sorry to read about your loss.... My thoughts are with you during this time ~ Lindie Fink / Gibson (Livingston, MT)

November 29, 2017
My condolences to your family on the loss of your father Merlin. He was always a big man to me when I was a child in Glendive (and Sam was the best dog in the world). I remember when he, my father Marvin, his brother Gordon and I were antelope hunting in eastern Montana. We had just finished lunch and the next thing, there is about 100 (or so it seemed) antelope stampeding thru our camp site. It was quite the thing to see. God bless you.
