    Roger I often wondered what happened after you left us here at A&J Electric in Cannon Falls and the fishing trip we shared to Canada which was one of the best fishing trips ever! You had an accident near Cannon Falls and I remember visiting you at the locate hospital here. Rest in Peace! I might have pictures of that trip for your family to share if they are interested?
