Hello Strom boys. Your mom had quite the impact on my life back in the early 70's. She directed the handbell choir at 1st Presbyterian Church in Fargo, ND and took us to our first festival in Winona, MN.
We road tripped there - I road with Randy and his cousin(name's not coming to mind) and also took an evening side trip in Rod's yellow and black Maverick with Tom Crowe, Brad Schlossman, Tami Blanich and Jan Roy - but I digress . . .
I have continued playing bells and directing choirs to this day. Her smiles and laughter are the first things that come to mind and her love and respect for music.
I was blessed to know her.
