God Bless Harry Exner

A great young man with tremendous potential who died much, much to early.  My sister flew back to Minnesota to represent the Edstrom's from Northern VA.  His Funeral is today.  Last night there were over 700 people who attended Harry's wake.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Harry's family, friends and relatives.  Very, very sad....

Below is from the Red Wing Republican Eagle Newspaper.

Harry Raymond Exner, 19, of Red Wing, died Tuesday, Dec. 7, in Denver, Colo.
