Agnes, Linda, Ruth , Dan and Karin, So sorry for you loss! Know that Calvin is safe in his Saviors arms! I vividly remember fun family camping trips you you guys! I always looked forward to campfires with Pastor reading stories from Birdlife in Wington! I have that book and think of him every time I read it! Hopefully he now reading to Dad, Julie and Clint! This was a favorite of Julie's also! They are celebrating Christmas today with Jesus😇

Linda Tedlie on Dec 23, 2017

We have such fond memories of Cal. Cal and Agnes were so good to all of us in the youth group at Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Oshkosh. Recent pictures look just the same as I remember! Sending a big hug to the family. Love to all. Linda Tedlie
