|Message||I was feeling a little melancholy tonight and decided to do a search about Good Old Sibley. Doesn't seem to be many posts from us 'old timers'.. Anyone else out there graduate in '68? It just creeps me out to think how old we all are.. YIKES !!!!|

|Message||For those who didn't already find out, dear Mr. Gar Lockrem passed away on Sunday, May 21, 2006. |
He was a special influence in the lives of many of us who were in choirs and quartets and he will never be forgotten by us.
I know that I will never forget him standing in front of the choir at rehearsal and pulling down on his nose with his index finger when he was beyond annoyed with us all! What MORE could he possibly do to get us to shut up?? Ha!
I will also never forget seeing him tell/show us he got goosebumps in concert when we hit a great chord.
God bless you, Mr. Lockrem....
|Message||To All past Sibley Choir Members|
I just wanted to let you know that our beloved choir director Gar Lockrem's wife pasted away last night (she was battling cancer for a while). The funeral is going to be
this Saturday (2/4) @ 2PM at Easter Lutheran Church in Eagan (corner of Diffley Rd and Pilot Knob Rd). The Lockrem's sold there home in Park
Rapids a few years ago and moved to Eagan to be close to their family - Gar and Eileen are members at Easter Church. Gar would like to have
Beautiful Savior sung at the funeral. I know it is short notice. The rehearsal will be Saturday @ 1PM at the church. Please pass this info along to anyone you think would like to come. Gar meant so much to so many people this is just one small thing we can do for him.
I just wanted to take a minute and wish you all a super new year!
We all are or have been dealing with some level of bad things in our lives.
My hope is that you are all able to find the strength you need to make it through your difficulties and the compassion to forgive those who cause you aggrevation.
Remember to love those who love you and to love yourself as well. Set small goals as well as large long term ones and celebate your accomplishments.
Anyway, take care and enjoy everything you do.

And it was kind of cool to meet everyone from Ivy Falls area.
