I received this note from Nature Soc. News-"Voice of the Purple Martin". Thank you for writing to let us know of the passing of a dear colleague. You are quite correct. The photo of the raccoons hanging from a bird feeder is definately a favorite. His photography skills were outstanding. We are saddened to learn of the death but rejoice in Heaven's gain. Editor-Karen E. Martin.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Dad. He was a nice man. I miss seeing him in his stocking cap at the grocery store and working in his yard. I used to listen to him on the radio talking with his friends. He will be long-remembered.

I'm sorry that I can't be with you at this difficult time to offer my sympathy and support. I'll be helping my daughter move this weekend from Menomonie to Sun Prairie. I remember being proud of my cousin whenever his pictures were published in the newspaper! I remember one in particular of Grandma Deno and a birdhouse. My thoughts and prayers are with you today and in the future. I will life up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made Heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
