So sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Schroeter. All of us at Palm Garden of Port St. Lucie thoroughly ennjoyed his calm demeanor and great stories. My favorite story was of the family place on Putnam Lake in upstate New York. I would mention it to Sven every day I would see him and he would smile ear to ear and tell me another story about fishing, hiking, etc. Sven will be a great addition to heaven.
