    Our sincere condolences to our cousins, Ron, Carol, Joan, Tom, in the loss of their Father and our Uncle Norv. The last time we talked was in November 2018, his Birthday when he turned 91, a milestone of life of Country living, doing what he loved to do. He will be missed as we lose another family member from the past generation. One memory of mine was the tunnel building in the hay loft by us kids, never thinking Norv would fall through them carry bales to the Hay chute to the barn. If my memory fails me, I think he said ” One busted bale, one busted kid” probably joking. We never got busted and were careful with the bales. A lot of other memories but thank God he had a good sense of humor. ” Lest we Forget” Love Ann, Malorie, Kent Hoverstad family.
