Kittelson Family,You are in our thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time. I remember your Dad as always full of laughter and smiles. My son, Nick, had the opportunity to meet your Dad a few years ago and he still remembers how your Dad would make him laugh. Those memories are what will help you get through this time. Thank you, Lisa (Myhre) Steinke
