Dear Elizabeth and Vera,
You have my sympathy on the death of your brother. I probably knew him years ago but mainly I remember the two of you. My mother was Elaine Hargis from Baldwin. As I remember, you were very kind to my mother. Vera, I think you are the same age as my brother Charles.
Losing our loved ones isn’t easy. A line that I always remember is “Grief is a sign of love.”. If we hadn’t loved the person, we wouldn’t feel the grief of losing them.
Again, I’m sorry for your loss.
Barbara (Hargis) Bretz, Mascoutah IL
Tracy and Toni,
Your dad was amazing. I remember him helping me buy a car from Gary Woods. He was a great guy and will be missed by everyone. You and your families are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.
May God put his comforting arms around you as you miss your dad.
Love to all,
Tracy and Toni,
Please accept our deepest sympathies. Your Father was a good neighbor when we lived on Washington St. in Red Bud. You two were just young children back then…the years pass quickly.
Charles and Bertie Zipfel
