    We truly regret not being able to attend
    Uncle Steve’s funeral. Please know that
    we will always remember him as that
    unassuming, rather quiet, kindly man who
    was indeed one in many thousands. The
    many acts of kindness he showed to us
    over the years will never be forgotten,
    and our thoughts and prayers are with
    you all.
    Myla and Stan Schimpf
