Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Debbie, Today, March 7, Sitting at the computer I was able to read the Obit. of my Nephew Albert, and can not believe what has really happened. He was 79 and I am 88 which means I was only eight when he came into the family. I had many, many years with your Father as we were growing up. Gerry, Marilyn, Albert ( the three musketeers, as they were called) Your Aunt Geraldine was my Maid of Honor in my wedding to Uncle Adrian, and our many times of our poker games are still fresh in my mind. Then they moved to Fla.and we all seemed to get on with our lives. But I remember camping with your folks along with Greg and you and those were precious years that I still remember. Your picture with your Father is precious. I know he loved you both so much, and all his Grandchildren. We were fortunate to have him visit us quite a while back when your Mom was in the hospital here and it was a GREAT coming together after so many, many years and talked much of the "memories" of the past. This is a very difficult time for you put hang on to all those wonderful memories you had of your Dad. It will help you to move on with your wonderful husband and children. With Love, Aunt Louise Bohle VanKalken

Dad, you have gone and left me with a huge hole in my heart, miss hearing your kind voice and telling me how I was your favorite little girl even though I was your only little girl till your granddaughters came along. Watching how patient you were with mom as you waited for her to get ready and sitting outside all calm and happy. The love you gave her in your last months with you both holding each other's hand and the way you cared for her. Please watch over us dad, say Hello to my grandparents, my aunts and I am sure you are surrounded by all the pets you ever loved. Xoxoxo Love forever, your little girl❤
