Dear Tony
Charlie and I would love to have been there tomorrow. As you know things are not always in our control. I was planning on attending. If I don't make it remember I have been praying for you and Joan. We will watch the stream service if not in attendance.
We support Stuart F Meyer Hospice House. They have served this community compassionately. I remember when they first opened their doors. I believe the piano was donated by Grand Haven members. Prayers go with you and your family tomorrow and on Monday.
Much love Charlie and Sandy Trautwein

Dear Joan will always be remembered by her friends and neighbors in the Crossings. Her sweet and ready smile, her special interactions with children (both two-legged and four-legged) were heartwarming and memorable by all those she encountered. She is missed by all.

I didn’t have the pleasure of being in Joan’s life for a long time, but the time I was able to spend with her was special! She was a beauty inside and out. My condolences to Tony! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

What a beautiful lady. She loved music and most of all her husband Tony. I remember her volunteering with Tony for CERTS at Grand Haven. At the village center at the Gym. Always ran into Tony and Joan at Publix or walking in Grand Haven. I am so glad that St Mark by the Sea was a part of their lives and got to know both Tony and Joan.
Our love to the family and especially Tony
