Thank you to the beautiful town of Edinburg! My father Alfred Flaten was placed next to my Mom in the Trinity cemetery this past weekend. Such wonderful people to work with to make this happen. The Mielke's were so wonderful to have a coffee reception following our service...Rita, those caramel bars were AMAZING!!! Driving away was bitter sweet as the family had such amazing memories. Thank you to everyone that took care of us as only a town like this can do!

Thank you for this site!
I live in Seattle and read about Vernon Gestson's service in the Seattle Times and represented Edinburg and the Wallum family at his service.
Wanted to let you know that Vernon Gestson passed away Friday, feb 10. He was 93. He was my uncle and was the oldest of the six children. Just Dolly left of the family, so sad to lose another family member.
I received word last week that Alfred Flaten had passed.
He had been retired and living in Florida for many years.
A good friend from Fairdale, Marlys (Chally) Sorbo, had stayed in touch with Al's kids and relayed the information to me - - -
Al had been dealing with medical issues for several years, apparently.
Best to all,
Happy New Year to all friends and family in or from Edinburg! Always enjoy this site. Thanks Rita! I now live in the Vancouver, Washington area. Enjoyed my last visit to Walsh County about a year ago and really enjoyed it.
I was browsing Google maps and spotted Edinburg in ND. It's great to see other places named after my hometown

Gib (Gilbert) Jensen called me last Sunday to let me know that our good friend Dan Hayes had passed away. I, subsequently, checked 'The Crowsnest' and you also mentioned his passing. That may have been where Gib heard about Dan. It was good to hear that Bonnie was in a good place and being taken care of.
Please keep us posted as to any plans for a memorial service - I am not sure if I will be able to come, but would appreciate knowing any details.
I have sooo many good memories of growing up in Edinburg and the people that helped our family during difficult times.
My very best to all,
PS: regarding the grocery store - who do we make a check payable to?

Check in every year or so. Pray for Crossroads often. Hope the store stays open as We remember Jif working there. Edinburg has a special place in us.

Hi Auntie Reets! Thanks for keeping up the website. It's fun to check in periodically and see what's been happening (even though I talk to my parents so often!). Plan on heading up in a few weeks, hopefully in time for the Walsh County Fair. Maybe the kids could mutton bust this time!

I wanted to let people who knew Sylvia Lowe (Gestson) that she passed away Oct. 6th. Sylvia is my aunt and was such a wonderful person. She will be missed.
