Memories of Julius "Ed"

To Janet (my classmate) and sister Barb and all the younger siblings, so sorry for the loss of your father. I had not heard of the passing of your mother as my mother has been gone for 17 years and had kept me posted on the news in Forest Lake. All your good memories will sustain you in this time of grieving.

 
Ron Miller, Legion Post 225 Chaplain

On behalf of the Forest Lake American Legion Post 225 we give thanks for Julius's military service to our nation.
