My thoughts and prayers are with the Manthei family this week with Uncle Dwain's passing. Have fond memories of our trips to Nebraska when we were growing up. I'm glad he is no longer in pain and with his siblings and parents. We will not be able to come up for the service but we are thinking of you. Safe travels to anyone coming for the service.
