Karl, John,

I’m truly sorry to hear about the passing of your father. It’s been a while since I talked with him, but I always enjoyed his conversations. I still have the empty 16 oz Straub bottle he gave me one time at his house many years ago. I saved it because it was a bottle with the old white label on it, (a few labels out of date). I since saved every new labeled bottle since.

Again I’m very sorry,

Hi, this is Betty,
I would like to express my condolences to you and your family. I thought it was very nice that even after I got out of the family both of you would still stand and talk to me. It wasn’t that long ago I saw both of you at Walmart. My husband Kevin went to school with Patty. Both of us would like to take this time to express our prayers and sympathy to you and the family.

Dear Fidelis and Family,

Please accept our prayers and thoughts at this time and so sorry we cannot extend them in person but are out of town.

Del, Patty, John, Karl, Mary Ann, Edna & Ed and the entire Family:

May God be with you all during this time of sorrow. You are all an amazing family. We know that Bob is in Heaven with Our Lord Jesus. It is always harder on the ones left behind. Remember you will see him again in God’s time.
Happy memories will always continue. Laugh and enjoy them 🙂 and continue Bob’s tradition of saying the “Our Father and Hail Mary” after saying the “Blessing Before Meals” (I could never keep up with him).
With Deepest Sympathy and Love,
Diane & Family

Leave A Condolence
