Our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. May you take comfort in knowing that you now have another angel to help watch over you...
Dear Rita and Doug, I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
The loss of a father
Is a heavy burden to bear.
He's a source of quiet strength
That is so missed when he's not there.
Take comfort he's in Heaven,
And looking down at you.
He'll be there through the coming years,
Watching over you.
He's your guardian angel,
And he'll be with you to the end,
When you meet again in Heaven,
And your broken heart will mend.
God saw him getting tired, a cure was not to be.
He wrapped him in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’
He suffered much in silence, his spirit did not bend.
He faced his pain with courage, until the very end.
He tried so hard to stay with us but his fight was not in vain,
God took him to His loving home and freed him from the pain.
Diane Kramer and Michael Schaefer
Dear Mark, Michael, Rita, and entire family and friends,
We are truly sorry and sad to learn of your father passing.
We hope your hearts will heal in time and that all the love throughout your times together will fill the void of this great loss.
...love Diane Kramer-Schaefer and Michael Schaefer
- from Diane- I will always have special memories of your dad and your mom...
I was able to talk to your father last spring and had a nice chat. Growing up on Cedar st...and then moving back to Cedar as an adult allowed me time to keep in touch. Your father was always a pleasant person with a twinkle in his eye and very much lived life to the fullest.
I am grateful to have known him and once again wish you all well in the grieving process. Love, diane
Mike - I am so sorry to hear for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
