Condolence & Memory Journal

I never met Mr. Berogan but was friends with his daughter Brenda and knew Bryan and his wife Lori throughout school. My condolences to the family.

I had the privilege of attending school with Mel and of being one of the wrestlers on his high school team at Amboy. In the past 15 years, we both served on the committee for our class's yearly reunion. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to have shared these times with him.
Our sincerest condolences to Mel's family. He was so proud of each of you. God bless each of you and may He support you during this loss.
