Loren was the best Uncle a person could have. He and Ellen Jo were always a great inspiration to us and our family. Life was a joy for him.

Loren has known for several months what the outcome of his illness would be, but he didn't let down, and gave testimony of God's goodness every chance he got, and praised Ellen Jo for the love and care she gave him. He set the bar pretty high for those left behind. Goodbye old friend. Dorothy and Dwight
