We were five brothers and one sister. We were taught to be independent and self-sufficient. We all went our separate ways. Ron, Merle, Stuart, Alan and Wanda are now together waiting only for me. I miss you Ron and wished that you hadn't left us so soon. We were finally getting to spend some time together. I'll see you again in due time. Carl

Pat, Chris, Paul and Karen, Deepest condolences to you all.
We asked our Lord to wrap his arms around you and to comfort you all in these difficult days. He touched many during our days in Milan and Madison. Now, he is safe in the arms of Jesus.
