i am very sad to report that my father has died. his name was DEAN HAALAND, but we lovingly called him “DEANO.”
i wrote a lot about him in recent years on the blog, and this past saturday afternoon, he died at the age of only 68……he had some health problems in recent years, but had been having a very nice few months until he left us. so, it was kind of a shock to get the call. of course, it’s a shock even if you know it is still coming.
my dad lived a great life….was a very loving father, husband, grandfather, and great grandfather. the tributes that are coming in about him are just staggering…..
here he is at a young age….
we spent today at SPITZER MILLER FUNERAL HOME in ABERDEEN making arrangements….tough tough day, but we share a ton of laughs as well………
someone who reads the blog has already asked me for my address, so here goes….
if you want to correspond with me, i will give you my address:
Jay Dean Haaland
p.o. box 306
Warner, S.D. 57479
i would appreciate your prayers….prayers in this world mean EVERYTHING…thank you so much…
*****(keep watching…i think the blogs will continue!!!)
