The family of Dayna Mortvedt cannot begin to express their gratitude for all the kindness shown to our family during and after the tragic events of the last few weeks. We have been overwhelmed by the compassion and generosity of our friends, family, and others we didn’t even know. Thank you to everyone who took the time to come to visitation and the funeral. The number of people who have reached out to us has been unbelievable. We are truly blessed to live in such a caring community, and surrounding communities as well. We are grateful to everyone who sent flowers, provided food, and memorial gifts.

Through your expressions of sympathy, kind words and deeds, it has become apparent to us, that in her young life, Dayna touched the hearts of many. She will live on forever in our precious memories.
