Heaven got a little more crowded - with the arrival of Inez. I will also remember Inez's laugh, and her Lefse. She will be missed, but she is in a much better place now.

Inez and Eli were good friends with my parents, James and Alice Borgen. They had lots of good times before my dad passed in 1975. I will always remember hearing all the laughter when they were visiting at our house in Viroqua. Inez had a great smile that will always be remembered. Thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

We extend our most heartfelt thoughts and Prayers in this time of deep sorrow. May God grant peace and comfort in these words... "In sorrow He sends comfort, to take away the pain. In drought He sends the power Of love, down with the rain. But through the darkest valley, Or on mountains highest rim, Give thanks and praise to Jesus We owe it all to Him. Gods Love and Blessings to you All" Rick & Kris Richveis

.....Too often we say things like, 'Well, I guess it was her time,', or 'At least she doesn't have to suffer anymore!'
But, there is a better message to share with the family. One that celebrates what made this individual significant, And that's what Lois and I intend to do!
Janice's devotion and dedication to the children in her class was unwavering. We have fond memories of the years we spent at Mt. Calvary and the majority of those memories included Jan!
So, in closing, we chose to say, "What a blessing....what a gift Jan was in our life!" We will not be able to attend the funeral service, but we pray God's word will comfort those who mourn her passing!

In Christ,
Lee and Los Robbert
