I heard about Loren’s death from a new residentl. Her name is Agnes and I don’t know her last name.She said she live near all the Lindquists until she moved into the same apt. building you live in. She moved out of here after a short stay into assisted living.
    Loren and Bobby were born only 2 months apart so he had so many wonderful memories of Loren.
    Bobby died in 2000 at the age of 80. Please accept my deepest sympathy in your loss. My phone # is763-689-3854. You can call me for no charge. .
