"Mrs. Utsinger, Boys and Family. I received this email notification about Mr. Utsinger with much sadness this morning. I had many good conversations with Warnie Sr. before, during or after many ballgames and school functions. My most recent conversation was in December at Fairview State Bank; it was like old home week! Great visit! There was no doubt that he and Peg supported, grandchildren , and great-children and our school in general. He will be missed by the entire Spoon River School District Family. Please accept our deepest condolences and know that Denise and I will be in prayer for you all during this difficult time. In Christian Love, K. Scot and Denise Reynolds Canton, IL "

"Aunt Peg and Boys, sorry about Uncle Warren. While we are never ready for them to leave, he is no longer in pain and all healed up. I'm sure there is a joyous reunion in heaven with his Mom and Dad. Heaven help us all when he reunites with his brother-in-laws. I'm sure that will be a hoot! While we will miss him, he will live on forever in our hearts and memories. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love you all and I'll always be here for you. Fly high Uncle Warren love you. Sherry"
