Dear family,

So sad at the passing of Uncle Red. So many wonderful memories. Summertime meals on the large deck of their house. Trying to back out of the driveway of their house. Uncle Red would help direct traffic so we could get out. But one of my favorites was of him smoking his pipe. The aroma was so pleasant and as a child I had never seen a pipe before.

We pray for God's comfort to be with all of you during this time of grief. Take joy because as Christians this is not "goodbye" but "see you later."

Love from Florida,
Todd and Jeannette Ringeisen and Family
