From: Don Doerr Sr.
Thank you, John and Fran Edstrom, for using the Winona Post to fight to keep Winona honest for so many years. If you could have been here from the very beginning, we might still have Central Park, the Winona Post Office, Winona High School, and a healthy and thriving Boller Lake, among other precious Winona-area treasures. My hope is that the day will come when your names will appear in public places with a greater honor than that given to those who have harmed our city with their misguided concept of progress. I had the honor of thanking John in a chance meeting at Danís Bar shortly before he died. Now, I want to thank Fran. May God hold you both, along with your family, in his arms.
