Our fun loving “can do’ brother, thank you for the the delight you brought us all. We miss you and love you.
I’ll miss you my fun loving brother. Thank you for climbing on our roof at midnight years ago and ringing jingle bells and shouting ho, ho, ho to provide Santa excitement for Amy and Bill. Thank you for all the wonderful Christmas cheer and great food and of course, the traditional duck! You were loved and are now being loved even more.
John, the (20) years since we met have passed quickly. All of the good times with the Deutscher Maennerchor, the German radio show, Strassenfest, even helping out at your stock broker office, and of course, Soulard Oktoberfest. It has gone by in a flash, or so it seems. You set an example of making your point and never giving up. Rest in peace, old friend.
