ADD A MEMORY

Aunt Lois, Nick and family, Lynne and family, Dawn and family - I'm so sorry for your loss but I'm happy that Uncle John was able to have this good summer and that he has no more pain. I looked at the photos you posted and they reminded me of lots of good times. Oma and Opa, the 3 brothers, us at a family dinner with you, my dad and Uncle John and their famous cars. I remember the stories they would tell of when they were young. We would be talking away at your place and Uncle John would light his pipe 5 times during the evening. He would take one puff and by the time he went back to it, the pipe would be out! In all the photos he is laughing or you can see it in his eyes. He enjoyed life and his "people". Although I won't be there with you on Saturday, I will be thinking of you. Rest in peace, Uncle John. Love from your niece Darlene.
