  • I know best

    sorry for the loss, bring in O.S.H.A. to figure out what happened because WCCO can’t report on much of anything


    My husband Robert Dahl was a foster son of Ursi and Eddy Kramer but did not know Patrick George. Since Patrick’s activities are so common on a farm and Arcadia/Trempealeau is such a small area he would like to send his condolences to his family anyway. May God open his armsfor Patrick and give comfort to his family and friends.
