"My brother and I shared many wonderful conversations in the last few years. He came back into my life like a blessing and I will always be grateful for the courage he possessed at that moment. Will miss him and his sense of humor. He always ended our conversations with"thats all I got". Loved him so. Cacky"

"What wonderful, fun filled memories of the times "up Nort". Met you as a young man at your parents cabin, danced wildly with you at the Blue Goose, watched you on the altar as you and Mary Ann exchanged wedding vows. You will be missed by oh so many. Barbara Mommaerts "
