My condolences to the entire Werkhoven family! I have many memories of your parents going out for a date when I babysat for the family. They are together again in peace. The Larose family sends our prayers.

My favorite Uncle. ❤ Sad to see him gone but happy he isat peace. Most of my memories are from when I was young, before we moved to Florida, before he was married and with Uncle Leroy and Mam Maw. And then after when he visited Florida to see us and when we visited Memphis and saw your family. Much love and hugs to my cousins. I know you miss him terribly but the gift of sense of humor that he gave you will see you through. Love all the pictures. They really show his personality. My mom, his sister sends her regards also. He had a very good long life and you luckily have the memory of that. Love you all.
