My heart goes out to the family on the loss of your beloved patriarch. I have good memories of J.R. and Aline. As a young girl I would visit my grandparents (Alma and Herb Toedtmann) often. J.R. always had a kind gentle smile on his face. I remember seeing him in his postal uniform, always a nice man.

I want to tell Sandy and your family how sorry I am for your loss. Sandy and I have had many a conversation regarding her father and his health, his belief in God and his going home to his wife. May the many years of memories bring comfort to you and your family and may God bless each and everyone of you. Sandy, call me if you want to talk, need an ear to listen or want a hug. Love you girl!

Sandy and family,
I am sorry for your great loss. Sandy, you and your family did an amazing job taking care of your dad. I loved reading your days with your dad. It reminded me of my time with my grandpa, Pop. I know nothing I can say will truly be enough. Just know I am thinking about you and your family. My faith in God and the hope of seeing our loved ones again keeps me going in this life. ♥️
