    To the Sorgatz family: Know that the my heart and the hearts of many Minnesotan’s go out to you during this time of loss. How tragic that they are both gone. I can only imagine the hole that will exist forever for the surviving family members. May you somehow find the strength you need to help you deal with this tragedy and find peace once again.
