Alfred was born on January 17, 1929, to Aili (Tapanila) and Hjalmer Juntunen in Perth, ND. He grew up on the family farm and attended school until the 8th grade, at which point he joined his father in full-time work on the farm. In addition to a strong work ethic, he developed a deep and abiding love of music and cars in his youth. He began playing mandolin as a teenager, played music with his two younger brothers for much of his life, and continued to perform well into his 805. Ask him I about any life event, and he would tell you when it occurred based on the car he was driving or had just purchased. ». ‘ In 1958, Alfred married Hazel Johnson of Wolford, ND. They set— tled on their farm outside of Perth, where they lived until 1989. There they made a happy and satisfying life with good friends in the community, in a cozy home where visitors were always welcome and the coffee and cookies were always ready. In addition to being a busy farmer, devoted husband, and loving father, Alfred was an active member of the community, serving on the Rolla Ambulance Board and Our Savior’s Luther Church Council for many years, as well as being a founding member of the Borderland Auto Club'.

He was an active volunteer in the community, and in 2010 was recognized as one of “8 over 80” North Dakota residents who make a difference in their commu- nity. . Alfred and Hazel also enjoyed traveling and spending time with their children and grandchildren dur- ing those years, and he especially en- , joyed a good train ride [and I the opportunity to meet new people as he traveled cross country. Alfred had a lifelong devotionto education, and earned his high school GED in the 1970s. He always en- couraged his children to pursue col- lege degrees, and both attended the University of North Dakota. Alfred has donated his body to the» UND Medical School, and he noted with a laugh as he signed the paperwork, “I always wanted to go to UND.” Alfred will be remembered by all who loved him for his big heart, his modesty, his love of art and music, and his “sisu” (Finnish for grit). His wife of 63 years, his children and his grandchildren will always be grateful for the deep love and valuable wis— dom he shared freely with them. 1 Alfred was preceded in death. by two infant daughters, Susan and Bar- bara; parents, Aili and Hjalmer; and brother John.

The groups on Thursday an- nounced the so-called fn‘end—‘of-the- court filings on Thursday. A trade group representing phar— macy benefit managers filed a federal lawsuit in 2017 challenging a North Dakota law that sought oversight on the managers and required disclosure of some financial information. Pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs, negotiate with drug makers on behalf of health insurers, employ- ers and unions that cover medica— tions. A federal appeals court later ruled North Dakota law regulating phar- macy benefit managers is preempted by federal law. The case is headed back to the ap- peals court after the US. Supreme Court upheld a similar Arkansas law late last year that said federal law doesn’t prevent states from regulat— ing reimbursement rates.

'—2 Thessalonians 3:10 he nineteenth century British philosopher John Stuart Mill argued persuasively- for a variety of social reforms, and especially for'state-supported public education, ‘ on the grounds that it “is help towards doing without help.”That is, education makes people more likely to be able to take care of themselves and live healthy, independent lives. It may be easier to just give people food or money to meet their immediate needs, but in the long run this may only foster a state of dependency, whereas if we take the time to teach the person how to fend for himself, he might fare better in the long run. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day but teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. There are lots of ways in which we can help others to help themselves, whether it is teaching them a skill or trade, or teaching them’how to drive or to read. Reading opens doors to a Whole world of help, because once you teach someone how to read, it gives them access to the entire fund of human knowledge. We should consider how we might help the people in our community, or even in our own families, to be more independent. -— Christopher Simon The businesses listed below sponsor this message and urge you to regularly attend the church of your choice.
