What a wonderful man Mr. Lechli was! I had the pleasure and privilege of spending many hours with Opa, who I called Papabear, especially in his later years. Besieged by medical issues, he was never bitter or self-pitying. His patience and abiding love for his dearest Mary was profound. To see them together, their evident love and devotion, was very touching. Where he ended and his dear Judy began I'll never know, they were so close. His love for all his family was deep, abiding, and unconditional. My deepest condolences to his family, friends, and all who knew him. I will miss our time together terribly but I let him go with the certain belief that he will be in the next world what he was in this, a great man with a good and kind heart, an unshakeable faith, and an abiding love that endures forever.
