Visitor brings gift of a lifetime
Bernetta "Bernie" Probst, 93, said about her Valentine's Day surprise, "When something beautiful like this happens, we should share it with people."
Probst, a River Falls native who lives at The Lutheran Home, said she was about to eat lunch Feb. 14 when a handsome young man came and kneeled beside her. He asked her if she knew Michael Probst.
Bernie acknowledged that he, a Marine, was her grandson but had been killed in action Feb. 14, 2006, in Iraq.
