  1. June and I became friends back in 1968 when we lived in apts over Stanton Hdwe in Braham. We were so young back then and had some good times. I got to know Ev and “Go-Ya’ as my daughter called Junie’s sister Gloria and made many visits to the Park Cafe. Growing up and moving on with our lives we lost touch but I always remembered June, our kids and the days over the hdwe store. Will miss you June…thanks for the memories. Diane Christensen

  2. “God is our refuge and strength; a help that is readily found in times of distress.” (Psalms 46:1) My deepest condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. And may the above words give you some peace knowing that the Almighty God is with you to comfort and sustain you through this difficult time.

  3. Dear Evie and family:

    My deepest sympathy in the loss of dear June. My thoughts and prayers are with you all to get through this sad, sad time.

  4. Sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed going into the Park Cafe when she was working, which seemed like all the time. She even spotted me some money if I had forgotten to bring some. I hope I remembered to pay her back! I’m sure she’d let me know if I didn’t.
