    Dear Corrie, Johanna, Henry & Corinne,
    Sending condolences from our family to yours. May your hearts always be filled with the good memories of your dad. He was a remarkable man.

    I had recently shared the photos from Facebook of Oma, Opa, Jo, Corinne and the Grandbabies with my mom and dad. What wonderful photos, and everyone had such a glow about them.

    Although we won’t be present, we will be with you on Wednesday in spirit.

    With Love,
    The Rodes
    & The Lancasters
