In memory of Ardy Pederson, Wife/ Mother/Grandmother A Death Has Occurred By Paul Irion A death has occurred and every- thing is changed. We are painfully aware that life can never be the same again, that yesterday is over, that relationships once rich have ended. But there is another way to look upon this truth. If life now went on the same, without the presence of the one who has died, we could only conclude that the life we remember made no con- tribution, filled no space, meant nothing. The fact that this person left behind a place that cannot be filled is a high tribute to this indi- vidual. Life can be the same after a trinket has been lost, but never after the loss of a treasure. Peder Pederson Bob & Peggy Haken Rh0nda Klein Michael & Kate Peders0n Jeff & Morgan Peders0n cussed to hold off on pur- chasing the turn out gear until we can apply for the safety grant with the League.
