My mother grew up on the farm, but my sisters and I did not. While we all have our memories of Grandpa and Grandma Christianson’s farm, we don’t know everything about the history of the land use, wells, and topography. Thankfully, our Aunts and Uncles live nearby and share their wisdom and experience with us. Their knowledge and mentoring is priceless!
It’s a delight to spend time together with Uncles and Aunties when we are in Bemidji. We miss Mom and Dad so much, and we get great comfort from connecting with their siblings.
Our newest generation is also a source of joy for us. We have had 6 new babies born into our family since Mom and Dad passed in 2015. I’m sure that they are smiling down on all of them!
