    Gerry Stange passed away this morning. Karl said no arrangements have been made yet. Gerry was out to Rollag last week for nursing home day and really enjoyed visiting and playing music. He was active for years and worked a lot with the Ortner. Karl will post more information when available.

    So glad Karl was able to get him out to Rollag recently. Gerry was an advocate of getting young people involved in the old machines and such a great mentor to many, including myself. People like him are hard to come by - he will be so missed. Thinking of you Karl and your family during this time.
