I worked with JR at post office for six years and I remember him fondly as a quiet man who had a good sense of humor. Rest In Peace and may the Lord comfort your family.

The Nauert’s were the sweet people who introduced George and I, 28 years ago and we have lots of great memories! Road trips to different quilt shows and quilt stores, Mexican food and What a Burgers! Our first cruise was with Johonas & Carol and we got the ride of our life on the beach in Mexico!! Thanks for the memories and may you Rest In Peace until we meet again🙏🏻😍

Oh my. We have so many fond memories of Johan, otherwise known as “Doug” to our family!! He always enjoyed good Mexican food, Kim Phung and Whataburgers! He was amazing at Trivial Pursuit. He acted like a big ole bear at times, but down deep, he was a pussycat. He loved teasing his beloved Carol and had a heart as big as his stature. We will miss you, big guy. Carol, Phillip, Ralaine and MichelAnne, our hearts are with you.
