Dear Bolte family,
How sad I was to hear of the passing of Inga. She was one special lady. I remember how kind and compassionate she was when Linda and I were growing up. (We actually have still not grown up!! )I remember a few years ago, when I looked out the window at our lodge and saw her walking across the deck!! My goodness....what a surprise. I don't believe I had seen her since they moved to Luverne!!! She still had her sense of humor and looked GREAT!!!!

I was also sad that I could not attend the celebration of life for her due to a lodge full of hunters. It would have been great to see the whole family again!! Please know that I was thinking of all of you, and that you have our sympathy. I know how much you are going to miss playing Bingo every Thurs. Linda, and also spending one day each week with your Mother. You have many great memories. God Bless her memory!!
Love, Linda

Talked with Mom (Ollie) about Inga, she said, she would write her letters
but, Aunt Inga would call her cuz she liked to talk instead of write. Mom will miss there talks.
