“Albert was our landlord when we moved to Ida Grove and what a good one he was. If we forgot to drop the rent in the mail, he just send us a card,....."just a friendly reminder...." Gracious. At that time he had a cute little black puppy and he would bring around and show us. What a nice man! You have our sincere sympathy. Dean and Karen Hammer”
