  1. We just found out that our old friend Ed Uptegrove has passed on. We are so sad and we’d like to hear from Annette to express our sympathies and friendship. Allen had known Ed since early grade school and I knew him since high school. You’re all in our thoughts and prayers! Love in Christ, Margie and Allen Dirksmeyer
