Memories Timeline


  1. Charlotte, I am sorry for your loss. Your Dad, Mom, Aunt Lucille and grandparents were dear friends as well as patients of Doctor Logan, and I worked for him the last 24 years he was in practice. Your Dad spoke of you often, and the last I knew, he planned to move to the Cincinnati area. Had I known he was still in St. Cloud, I would have kept in touch. We always enjoyed seeing your Dad, and he invited us all over one evening for the best black walnut ice cream I\’ve ever eaten. He was a good, loving man, and he took such good care of Izora all those years. My condolences to you and all your family. Jenny Stephens

  2. I wish to express my deepest condolences to your family. The God of all comfort can bring you hope during this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
