Fred Salzman left a message on August 4, 2010:
Dear Karl, Thank you for the memo regarding your father's death this past Sunday. My deepest sympathy is with you and the Ilg family. Joe was a true friend and will be sadly missed. I've known Joe for about 40 years and worked with him at the Graber Company many years ago. I maintained contact with him as he was a very intelligent individual and held many top manufacturing positions. Throughout the years, he has given me advice with regard to manufacturing. Outside of work, he would pay me a visit at my cottage in Winchester, WI, not too far from where he grew up in Rest Lake. I enjoyed listening to him on any topic, but especially when he talked about John Dillinger, the bank robber. Joe was always a top caliber guy and always had time for the other person. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Fred Salzmann

Dearest Emily, Thank you so much for sharing the news of Joe's death. Death is always a shock and I hear your grief and sadness. I'm so grateful for the presence of you children I"m sure you all bring great comfort to each other. You've made me feel great love this morning by sharing your loss and I hope you can feel the love I'm sending your way. You touched my heart when we met in Africa and I'm sure you added this love to Joe's life as well. I am sorry that I can't be with you and your family this Wednesday- I'd love to show my support with my presence but I am in California right now and it's not so easy to come. I will be thinking of you and your family and I look forward to when we will see each other again. I'm going to foward an email from Jenny with what I hope is news to make you smile and feel some love. All my love to you and your family, Cathy

David Debus Family left a message on August 3, 2010:
Karl, Sara, and Annie, My parents got word to me about your father and I just wanted to let you know that we are thinking of him, and of course, all of you. Even though it has been a long time since I have seen you, you have always been great cousins, and your dad was a big part of it. My parents have always had kind things to say about your dad, and personally, I feel it has rubbed off on all of you. In the next couple of weeks, when you think of your dad (and yourselves) in any way with the Debus family, please remember that our memories of all of you bring a smile to our faces. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. David
