Peter Lemmer on Jun 9, 2020

Lose Family, So sorry to hear of the physical loss of Uncle Tom. Uncle Tom is of such a character that he will never be forgotten, and his presence will always be felt. God blessed all of us with his wonderful nature and enthusiasm for life. He was after all the greatest fisherman Echo Lake has ever seen - a Legend of Echo Lake. His boisterous and gregarious laugh would always generate a smile. May that smile he leaves behind for us all find a way back to each of you as you grip and overcome the grief of loss. God bless you all Lose Family. Love, Peter Lemmer

With great sadness I feel for the entire Lose family, I thank you for being able to share in the funeral of your dad. Mr. and Mrs. Lose were friends of my parents since they moved to Fort Dodge. I believe they worked "Bingo" together on Thursday nights and their friendship grew form there. Everyone knew when Mr.Lose was around with his loud laugh and smile in his eyes! His pride for his children and their successes in life were told to me by my mom for many years. Thank you for posting the pictures you did! I am happy to see the 65th celebration of their marriage and the bench that will always represent the life well lived. Mary Koch Morrow
