I wanted to express my sympathies to all of the family members. I will share just a few of many memories of your dad(grandpa). I enjoyed reading the spiritual articles he wrote that were printed in the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette. I appreciated his sharing his love for his Lord. I also was thankful in his willingness to teach a young married couples class with your mom at 1st Missionary church in Berne. I appreciated his humbleness and transparency in sharing his mistakes he made early in his marriage to your mom in trying to be helpful to the young married men in the class. I also respected his long-suffering nature he endured in being a Cleveland Browns fan(they actually had some good years)😁 I rejoice in his eternal going home to meet his Lord and being reunited with your mom. May God grant each of you His comfort and peace!

Saw your father’s obituary in the Berne paper. So sorry to hear of his passing! Even after 22 years the “Honig memories” come back :). Great memories! Praying for your family.
