My name is Judy Johnson. I grew up in Albert Lea. My father was Merton Bickford and Nina Morreim was his sister. I was very sorry to hear that Merton Morreim had passed away. He was a great person always enjoyed visiting with him. Unfortunately, most of the time we were meeting was at sad times - funerals. I had 4 sisters and of course, Merton knew all of them and was at their funerals.
Your family is in my prayers and I am sending my sympathy..
