Dean Mark and Dan,
I am not sure if you remember me but I am Sandy Olson from Greenbush, MN. Your grandmother, Ida was my great aunt and probably my most favorite ever. I loved her so. Anyway I knew you both when you would stop by and visit her. I think of your Dad and I wondered about him so I looked up his name and saw that he had passed a couple years ago. I have such good memories of your parents and our visits in Greenbush and in Belvidere. I hope you and your families are doing good. I still live in Moorhead, MN with my Husband. My 3 children are all married and live her in Moorhead and Fargo, ND. Please take care and I hope our paths cross again some day.
Love, Sandy

Dear Mark and Dan and all of Nick’s family, Please accept my sympathy for the loss of “Dad”. It’s tough losing one’s parent no matter how old. It’s certainly the end of an era. An era where one can live one’s life near where they were born and work for the same employer for all one’s working career. Nick was certainly a steadfast man that was happy with what he had. May you be as proud of him as we all are. God bless the soul of Nicholas Bellich and may he rest in peace. Amen.
