    Hi to all the Mattson family:

    Sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. He lived a very long life. I last saw him when he and your mom were still living near Fish Lake south of Mora, before moving back to Winsted the last time.

    It was either he or your mom that were recovering from knee replacement surgery, toughing it out, doing what was needed to recover. That may have been more than 20 years ago now. Your parents were always happy to see me when I stopped to visit and eager to share the news of all of you.

    It has been a very long time since we road our bikes to the store on Saturday mornings and spent a whole dollar on candy.

    I, especially, will never forget your mom’s kindness either; specifically the time I fell through the river ice, we ran back to your house, me coated in ice, and she dried me off and warmed me up, and made it all better!

    From Long Beach CA, my best to you all. I will be thinking of you on Monday, as I remeber both of your parents, as you will likely be doing as well.

    Bruce Arnold, childhood neighbor
