    I think Roman was our dad Wallace’s friend for longer than any others. I will always remember our visits to the farm. I remember a horse named Tinkerbell, a dog named Shep and the cows. I remember Alta doing mom’s hair in her shop in the basement. I remember Roman and Alta coming to visit us. I remember smoked whitefish. I will always cherish the friendship of our families and the wonderful memories.
    My deepest sympathies to Alta, Claudia and family and Mike’s family.

    We were saddened to receive the news that Roman had passed but appreciate that God now has a good person to attend to his garden, keep the Knights of Columbus orderly and will be one more of our siblings to whom we can pray for guidence and strength. To many memories to list but they will always be in my heart.
