My Sympathy to your Family
Posted by Kay (former work colleague) On Friday, February 3, 2017
I worked with Dr. Opseth in Porcupine Plain, and was saddened to hear he had recently passed, and his dear wife also, recently.

Grateful to have worked with him back in the day, and for happy memories of that time in the Health Care field.

Best wishes to his Family.
