  3. Alver and Evenna have my dad and I a chance many years ago and have me a home when I was very young, I will never forget the love and kindness they have us. I have so many good memories and love for them. Alver’s smile and kindness was true and honest. With much love and respect for the family, from Bobbi (larson) Nelson

  4. Uncle Al and Aunt Evenna were my caretakers when I was very young, for that I am grateful. Alver was a good man, rarely did you hear him speak unkindly of others. As years passed, I thoroughly enjoyed hunting and fishing with Uncle Al and his sons. Alver and Dad can now search out the fishing and hunting hotspots together.

  5. Sorry for your loss. My husband, Jody, often talked with Alver about the hunting season and any bear sightings. He was a very kind man.

  6. Alder was a very kind man. His dedication to family and church was admirable. Condolences to the family in their loss.

  7. Condolences to Alvers family. I worked with Alver at ECEA for many years. He was a very good guy, and we became friends both at work and after we both retired.

  8. Alver was a very kind caring man. Growing up he made me feel like family. Thinking & praying for all you.

  9. With deepest sympathy to the entire Lindberg family. We have known Alver and Evenna ever since moving to Braham in 1976. They have always been caring, thoughtful neighbors. They have tirelessly given many hours of their time to support our church’s programs as well. May you all be surrounded with love.

  11. Alver was so welcoming when John and I moved back to Minnesota ~ he was gentle and generous. He was especially kind to our family when my Mom was battling cancer; always asking about her with genuine concern. I’m sad for our earthly loss of this sweet man, but am thankful he is free at last.

  12. So sorry to hear of your loss.
    Alver and I worked at ECE many years together.
