    Dear Don &a Ann, So sorry to hear of Judy's passing. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We didn't realize that you were living back in Iowa City. It must be a comfort th have each other close by. The happy memories help us through times of sorrow. Your mom was a special lad, Ann. I hope her PEO chapter is included in the memorial service. It is a very nice tradition. Bob &Jacquie Lier

    Dear Don and Ann. So saddened to learn of Judy's passing. I have so many happy memories of picnics and other events enjoyed with the Reter family when we were young. It's difficult to realize that all are now gone save Ann. My love and deepest sympathies are with you in your loss. Dorothy Kynett Carbee

    Don, (To me you are still Mr. Kolsrud.) I took your Accounting class in high school. It was because I admired you so much that I decided to major in Business Ed. I taught business classes for 27 years before retiring. I now live in Bettendorf so just learned about your wife's passing. I know you made a big difference in my life so I just want to offer you my sincere condolences. I remember when I was in your class you received a note from your wife a couple of times. I could tell how very much you loved her. It was so cute! I hope you have lots of wonderful memories. Jesus walked among us so that we might better see the breadth of His compassion. Jesus understands how much it hurts to lose someone you love. I hope you find comfort in the coming days. Sincerely, Pam
