  2. Interesting that you found a photo for the memorial service. I almost want to grab a hymnal and see what hymns were scheduled for that service!

    How difficult that service must have been for family.

    I found a military record at Ancestry that listed Otto's next of kin as his mother, Mrs. Pauline Weeks Anderson, living on Newton Avenue in Minneapolis. I couldn't find anything else, other than a few military records.
