Grandpa I am so blessed to have you in my life. You have touched my life like no other person has, with the wisdom of being positive no matter what life through at us, We had lots of long talks during the day when everyone was gone. Bringing your coffee to you every afternoon made me feel so special doing this for you. Because you have helped us when we were down, you brought hope and faith back into me and Shawn. You were there when we wed and you talked to me as a father would before we went to tie the knot. You are going to be missed by all of us I know that in my you are where you wanted to be

Were do I start to talk about Cully and Marie and the whole Selig Family. I was picked to write to and about the memories we all have of the good times our family had with yours. One of my sisters wanted me to tell you she remembers the dances that the Selig Family would have in the basement of there home when she was younger and how much fun she used to have at your home. If you wanted a drink of water you could go out back to the hose and get a drink. If you needed to use the bathroom you could walk in the back door and Marie would be sitting at the kitchen table and tell theme to go ahead so they would not pee your pants. My other sister told me of a story were Cully came over to the house because our tub was leaking into the basement, he fixed the leak with our Dad and than Dad asked "what do I owe you?" and Cully just5 responded " one beer " so him Dad sat at the kitchen table and had that beer. She also said there was always someone to play with in the neighborhood from the Selig Family and you always knew you had a safe place at there home. I remember Cully taking my Mom and Marie and Mrs. Ognie and Edna to the Fire Alarm for a drink and they would get Marie out on the dance floor in her wheel chair and all the ladies would be dancing away and Cully would sit down and just be smiling away. I still wonder what was going through his mind. As for me I don't know were to start. After my father died Cully watched over me as a father. i will never forget, and he wouldn't let me forget that he took me out for a big steak dinner when I graduated, and brought me back to there house were I had my first beer. Well he always reminded me that I drank that beer with him on the front porch and than through up my steak dinner. There is a lot to say but my eyes are too filled with tears. That was one home that you knew the door was always open, for my sister and I and our whole family. Oh yes and the neighborhood parties our parents used to have together. Steve was my first crush and Sharon taught me how to swim. Bill used to play his guitar with me as I would play the drums or my flute. You just don't find people like Cully and Marie any more and families like the Selig family and Cully was the base of that family and a wonderful man.
So with our love and prayers for all of you today and in the future I know Cully is up in heaven having a beer with Marie and my Mom and Dad. Love you All Fancy Nancy
