Condolences to John's family from Grace, Tom, & Hannelore Tretter---we always liked seeing John at church; his steady presence, and his quiet dedication to Third Lutheran was reassuring on many levels. We will miss him.

Dear Doug and Matthew,
Please accept my deepest condolences. You father was such a wonderful, kind, and unassuming man. He was also a faithful Christian, salt of the earth kind of guy. I treasure the many visits I had with him and you mother and their many four legged friends in their home on Lakeside. I have met so many people in my life, but only few leave a lasting mark in my memory, and your parents are among those few. It is comforting to know that they are now together forever, such a love story. May he rest in peace. May God give you faith, hope and strength as you move to days ahead, and a sure and certain hope and trust in the promise of eternal life.

Always looked forward to coming home for Christmas and seeing Uncle Jack and Aunt Betty at Christmas Eve service, then the anticipation of the annual Almanac, $5 bill and candy on Christmas Day. Matt and Doug are in our thoughts today.

Uncle Jack and I were lucky this Christmas to spend some time together at his home on Lakeside when I delivered his annual batch of Christmas cookies. Seven and I got along very well too! So glad to have that as a recent memory.
Love, Cathy
