Dear Al, Mary Jane, Ruth, Donnie and the entire Falter Family,
Lainey and I are very saddened at the news of Grandpa Falter's passing.
Matt and I treasured our visits to Ohio and the time we spent with "Poopsie".
I absorbed as much as I could from the wonderful stories he shared with us and I share those stories with Melaina. Grandpa Falter will go on forever as I and the other Falter grandchildren pass what he taught us on to our children and our children's children.
With Sympathy,
Stefanie and Melaina Falter
