Reply from Traci (Pritchard) Zahn: Judge Ketterling married my parents (Shirley Pritchard). I can remember mom talking about what a great sense of humor he had. My thoughts are with him and his family.
Traci, I believe your mother was Shirley Pritchard, daughter of Robert & Dorothy. She has passed on and is buried in Ackworth. I do not remember your dad’s name though.
You requested to be added to our distribution list some time ago. I added your name to the master email list, but I don’t see where I’ve added you to our daily distribution. I have added you now, so please let me know if you are receiving it twice. For our records, where are you currently living? Gary

I just read your newsletter; I see LeaRae mentioned Judge Ketterling. This is his CaringBridge website if anyone would like to have it.

Many of you may know of the wedding celebration that will happen March 6, 2010 in LA. Ashley Noel, daughter of Gerald Pilkington and Evelyn Gottbreht will exchange vows with Gavin Phillips Witzer, son of Mr and Mrs Marc Witzer. All eight of Dale and Alma Gottbreht’s children will be together for this happy event. I am posting the fine photo of George who was in fine form on the occasion of another family wedding, that of Ivan Shen [Victor and Sharron] to Nora Obringer [Bob and Lauran] 24 Sept 2005 Detroit, MI. George danced the night away with his many nieces. The photographer captured Jenny Gottbreht daughter of Bill and Jean; DeAnn Gottbreht daughter of Ernie and Brenda and Ashley Pilkington daughter of Ger and Evie with there Uncle George Gottbreht. Priceless!Sharron

I think I sent this picture awhile ago. Someone might have sent an address where I could mail the picture, but I can’t find it. I have the picture right beside me RIGHT now, so if anyone has a mailing address for Allan/a relative, I’ll mail the picture as soon as I have an address. It’s a small picture, but Allan/a relative might like to have it.
I’ve been battling a cold since February 16; I haven’t been out of my apartment since the night before when I arrived in Bottineau. I don’t have much energy these days, but I’m going to scan/send a few articles from the Courant to you for your newsletter. The good part about having no energy is I’ve watched much more of the Olympics than I usually do.
I enjoy all the pictures/stories/etc. (if I know the people, or if I don’t know them) in your newsletters and also the picture/info you include about life in Cebu.
