Inscription.

Howard loved the water, sailing and knew all about ships. He was a sailor, shipbuilder, boat launcher, and a long-time DCMM docent. He couldn't wait to sail each spring.

Lou was a great supporter of Howard. She cared for their home, children, finances, and worked outside of the home. She was a founder of the Marine Men's Auxiliary, which did charity work in the community.

Lou and Howard lived on or by water all their lives. They were great parents, proud of their Norwegian heritage and active in Sons of Norway.
