In Loving Memory of
Earl M. Barsness
October 21, 1933 - December 22, 1997

My father died on December 22, 1997.  He died of lung cancer.  We took first took him to the emergency room on October 24, 1997 because he was coughing up blood.  We did not even have the time to absorb that he had cancer before he died.

I loved him with all of my heart.  He was the first man I ever loved and I was his little girl.  I will always feel like his little girl.  This tribute is to remember the love of a wonderful father and to give me reassurance that I am doing all that I can to never forget this wonderful man.  The nightmare of his death is with me always and I don't seem to be getting over his death like others in the family.  In my heart, I want it all to be a bad dream and that I will see dad, the way he walked, talked and smiled.

I will never forget him or the part of me that was born because of him. This tribute goes to my father.

I Love You Daddy,
Jeen Ruff
