"Prayers for all of you. I have great memories of your Mom when Terri and I would act like a couple of goof balls and she would just look at us like we were crazy, and she wasn't wrong. May she rest in peace - reunited with your Dad. Barb Borowczyk Boehm"

"Dear Wojtasiak family, What an awesome lady, Mrs. Wojtasiak was! She will always be the sweet, kind, lady who offered me a gentle smile each time I entered the office at River Grove school. I was an extremely shy, young student and Mrs. Wojtasiak was always there go give me comfort and assure me that "it was going to be ok". She was one of those individuals who made a difference in my life and I'm grateful for the kindness that she always shared with me. Peace to all of you as you say good-bye your mom and grandma. Carol Arndt"

"I love John and Jane as they were so important to me when I was growing up as John worked with my Dad at the People?s Bank for many, many years. Going to their home from the time I was young till I was older was always so special, especially when we would go at Christmas. I love the times when they would come to our home too. Living out of state I was sorry when John passed and I couldn?t go to his funeral. Now I?m in Antigo and I can?t go to the service again -this time for Jane- which makes me very sad. I would like to express my deepest sympathy to all of the family and let them know that others love their parents, too. May God?s love and promise of eternal life and family and friends help you in your grief. I mentioned your parents often and I just was talking when we were in Wausau the other day that I wish I knew where to find Jane so I could go and visit. Unfortunately, it never happened because I didn?t know where she was. Nevertheless, I believe we?ll all be together again. The photo I am including was when they came to my Mom, Leona Carlson?s, 90th Birthday. God bless and comfort you all. Valerie Carlson Raisch"
