Link Family,
So sorry to hear of Georges passing. I remember when we all lived in the neighbor hood. My parents and your parents were always getting together, they really knew how to party.. George was always laughing and it showed that he really enjoyed his life.

Prayers to you during this difficult time.

So sorry to hear about George's passing. He was a great guy with a super laugh! My best memories of all of us were the canoe trips, especially going down the Kickapoo! We go back such a long way and thoughts and prayers are with you Mary Alice and your children. God Bless......Sue (Lerche) Sandahl.

Dear Link Family,

We have such wonderful memories of your father and the rest of you when the Canoe Group would get together. The adventures and bond our parents had was priceless.

I know your father is having a great laugh with David Koukal, Sr., Jim Bush and my dad, Leo Juppe. In fact, I think they are planning their next adventure!

The Juppe Family is with you at this time in spirit and in prayer.
God Bless.
Mary Beth (Juppe) Bretzlauf for the rest of the family
