And most of all to Kari and her fami- ly for taking Brandon into their home to recover and for all the long hours it has been to take care of him. There is a special place in heaven for you, you're a special angel. Brandon is healing well for what he has gone through, but he still has a long way to go. We thank you for those who have kept him in your prayers, we have seen many miracles already and we ask that you continue as he can still use all he can get. He is still wearing his halo and his right arm is locked in an L-shape at the elbow, which can't be repaired at this time. His left arm is still numb and only has slight feel- ing. His back surgery was successful, but now we wait and pray that the neck will fuse and his halo may be removed, and eventually his brain injury will subside. He and we do realize he is a walking miracle and we are thankful every day that he is still with us. He is getting so excited to be with his sister on the most important day of her life, her wed- ding. There is and will continue to be a medical fund at Minnwest Bank Ortonville. Brandon will remain with his sister for a time yet. You may send cards to him at: Brandon Swigerd, 27706 Co.

Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found the place at the close of day. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee, God wanted me now, He set me free. So sadly missed by 13-1 Arlen, Kids and Grandkids IN MEMORIAM In loving memory of Cathy Jo Tina Acheson Krogsrud, who passed away four years ago on April 22rid. So many people have said, "Don't dwell in the past. No matter bow much you hurt, I promise, il won't last." I say to them, "The past is all I got. And about the hurt, It might go away, it might not." People have tried to comfort me. Obviously, it didn't work. Nothing can take away the pain inside. Nothing will remove that hurt. People are still there With a helping hand to lend. No matter how hard I try This feeling won't end. A Poison song says, "Life goes on while you're miles away." Even though that's true, I still would have liked you to say. I believe God had a reason For taking you up to Him. That light, for you, was so bright. For me, however, that light is still very dim. Even though you went away, 1 promise !'11 see you again, someday. Wait for me, For someday, I will be with thee. -written by Amanda Krogsrud She is greatly missed by Stanley and Linda Krogsrud, Kent, David and Amanda, Kristin and Bruce Mclntyre, Arielle, Donna and David Gibb, Nirdaola andDanica 13-1 ....

"These are the most efficient cows in the Hereford breed," said Craig Huffhines, AHA's Secretary. They have met the strictest requirements for early calving, reproductive efficiency, calving intervals of no greater than one year, and weaning weight ratios in the top end of the breeder's herd. Some 1619 cows were named to the prestigious list for this year. A complete listing of the cows and the 517 breeders who produced them is available from the American Hereford Association or the AHA's internet web site at http:/ An article reviewing Dams of Distinction is published in the April 2001 issue of Hereford World Magazine, the breed's official publication.
