Bob, Steve and Joan -
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. We are so sorry we couldn't make it to the funeral. Thank you so much for putting the video together and sharing it on this web site. It was very special.

We sure are glad we had the fun times with your dad since we moved back to Wisconsin. We loved spending time with him and he seemed to love seeing us and spending time with us. Last year at Aunt Ethel's funeral we sat with Stan and Aunt Margaret, it was so special; what a wonderful family we all have.

Please know that we are here for you if you need anything or just to talk.
Take care and God bless.
