JAYNE & DEBBIE,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your father. We can be thankful that your parents had a long happy life together, and made great memories for your family. Marge Scheurer
Love you Uncle Sonny! Thank you for my childhood memories visiting you and your family. All of the boat rides, picnics and snowmobiling over the snowy fields of Wisconsin. I still remember the many spaghetti dinners cooked by aunt Lenore, which remains my favorite meal. My thoughts and prayers go out to my Cousins, Uncles and Aunts that are saying good bye to a brother, father and grandfather!
David. R. Boehm
