    Dear Clyde, Gwen and Adickes families:
    Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to all of you as you mourn the loss of your dear mom. As both you and your mom were our Lester Prairie neighbors for many years, we still drive by the farm and know that is the “Adickes” farm. Good memories, great neighbors. God’s blessings always.
