    Deb, and your entire family.

    We are sorry to learn that your dad died. We are at the lake and, sometimes, learn in a belated way what is happening in Stillwater. We have such good memories of both your parents. We always enjoyed seeing you and your dad!

    I’m sorry to hear the passing of Herbert Berger. Herb and his wife Maxine were great people and wonderful neighbors back on old Falhstrom lane in Oak Park Heights.
