I missed my dad along time ago. My dad lost a lot in a short period of time. Eventually he did find peace just being in the presence of my mom. He loved that porch that mom and I was insistent on not having. He had found new enjoyment. He loved the humming birds and in the evening watching the fireflies rising from the grass. He always had a infectious laugh. He always new my name he always asked were Lonnie was. Last of all dad found peace with the word of God before he passed. I now know I will see him again.

Dad you taught me many things about life that have helped me through the years of my life. You taught me to turn a wrench, and figure out how to fix whatever needed repair (almost always busting a knuckle). I knew it would never be a simple fix but to be patient even if there were left over parts when everything was put back together. I could always call you to walk me through where I would get stuck, I will really miss you. You were the Jack of all trades, master of all. You taught us not to be afraid but to be independent. you helped everyone even those less fortunate giving jobs and a roof over their heads.
When I was young I always impressed at your athletic ability from walking on your hands, riding a unicycle, doing giants on the horizontal bar, and the great swimmer that you were pulling our burning boat to the shore from the river. I realized that fitness and mechanics work together that is what you gave me, my destiny.
I am thankful for all the care that each of my sisters, nieces, my nephew J.R. who was there to help Mom and Dad through the tough times, and Wydrzynski's who watched over them day & night making sure they were ok. You all brought joy to Dad in his last days. It was comforting to know that Dad and Mom were so blessed to have been surrounded with a great caring and giving family. I love you all.

I have so many memories as a kid of sitting in the living room or hanging out in the backyard at Grandpa Charlie's & Grandma Faye's. Sitting around helping count change from the washers, family dinners, swimming, gardening and just learning about the different plants and where they like to grow...overalls, greasy hard working hands, brilliant mechanical mind... I am lucky to have the bonus families I have had, they have been such a big part of my life, my growing up - and who I want to be. Faye and Charlie welcomed me... I love their love story... my favorite memory though, I decided happened not too long ago. I don't know what people usually think of that they want to do when they enter a hospice program - I am sure many, many things run through their minds... but what Grandpa Charlie wanted to do was sit on the screen porch after dinner and watch the fireflies. Simple - beautiful - meaningful. I will never forget that. My love to you Grandma Faye. <3 XO Blessings and Grace. Rest easy Grandpa Charlie, you have certainly earned that.

My father was a great influence in my life and taught me how to give of myself. He was a talker and made friends with everyone he met. He always was there to help any one who was in need. If your car broke down or your furnace went out he was there to help. He enjoyed being with his family and friends. When we went on vacations he took everyone that could go. The fact that he is no longer here will always cause me pain but and I will find comfort in the memories of the good times and the fun we had. He lit up the room and always had a funny joke or funny story that only he could tell.

Dad I love you and will miss you every day and there is a empty place in my heart that no one can every fill because dad you were one of a kind. I will miss you more than you will know and I hope you are watching over us in heaven, telling your jokes and stories to God for I am sure he would love hearing them as much as we did.
Love you Terry

Charlie,
What a special man you were. You were like a second father to Dan. I'll never forget all you've done for us, it didn't matter what we needed you were there to help us out. I will hold our memories close to my heart remembering all the trips we all took together. There was always a lot of laughter. I loved all your stories you would tell. May God hold your family in his arms and comfort them in this time of loss. We love and will miss you. Fly high Charlie. Dan and Nancy Sachsenheimer.

Ken....What can you say about a man that could do everything. We have known Ken for 52 years. He loved to be a jokester and make you laugh but he also loved to be with family. Whenever I was down or just because he would sing me a song. Whatever Lola wants Lola gets. Why that song I dont know but it would be a never ending smile on my face. He will be missed so much. May God wrap his arms around his family at this time of sorrow.With all our love, The Sachsenheimers, Steve and Diane
