We were so sorry to hear the news of your Dad's passing. We certainly have many wonderful memories that involve your Dad and Mom especially the numerous cookouts in my parent's gazebo. I know that they are all dancing a Polka together again.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

Dear Patti,
Mom and I are so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was such a spirited awesome man. I will always remember his contagious laughter and light hearted humor. Your family and mine really shared some wonderful years together and he was one man that my Dad so highly respected and admired. I'm sure they are together now sharing their police stories and laughing together once again. He was a wonderful man and you were so lucky to have him in your life for as long as you did. Your memories will get you through.
Love to you always,

To The Antlitz Family,

I had the good luck to be paired up with John in the early 70's and we worked together for about a year. I was transferred and didn't see him again till we accidentally ran into each other about 30 years later 2001 or 2002 at BWI. He hadn't changed a bit. Very Sorry to hear of his passing. He was a really Nice Guy, and a Great Partner. I know he will be missed.
(As I live in Florida I will be unable to attend the Service)
Please accept my Condolences.
