Joseph, you will always by my only love
It has been three months since Joseph left us. I love you and I miss you with every breath I take. I can not touch you, I cannot see you, I cannot hear you, but you are with me every moment.
This world has lost a good man. I always looked at Joe as a man's man. He stood for what is right in the world and reached out to me to give helpful advice when I was young. I will always remember his reaching out to me, and the kindness and love he shared with me. May you always look back in fond memories, and be well through this devastating loss.
Joe was such an optimistic person encouraging people with the same health condition to carry on and not give up. In his words 'I am not going anywhere yet'! What an inspiring attitude. May Joe's soul rest in peace!
We lost you two months ago ... you are missed every moment of everyday.
Joseph, my Joseph - Staring the New Year of 2013 without you. I miss you with every breath I take.
Dear Vicky and Erica,
I am so sorry for your lose. God Bless you both, my prayers are with you.
Vikki, on behalf of the Trenton Donauschwaben (home of many Palankaers) we offer our prayers and condolences to you and your family, Dennis J. Bauer, VP.
Joe Schummer was a man of our time, and a man of the ages; a man of tradition, manners, forgiveness and kindness. He was a man of integrity, an emblematic of all that's good in men; a gentle man and a defender of civilization; a warrior if needed; mannered, principled, loyal and loving. He'd do anything for anyone in need, any time, no questions asked, no repayment expected.
If life is the ongoing perfection of the soul, if it's the light we bring to God at the end of our time, Josef Georg Schummer's light is the very brightest of the lights shining in Heaven.
Joseph, my Joseph - I will miss you with every breath I take.
Thinking of you and your family Vikki and keeping you all in my prayers. It is always hard to lose a loved one but the holidays seem to make it more difficult. God bless you all and remember that Joseph is no longer in pain, he is in heaven.
Thinking and praying for you today, Vikki. Wish I could be there in person for Joseph's "last party" - but I know it will be filled with your friends and family - just pretend the goofy lady from Ohio is there, somewhere! Love you, dear friend!..Sue
The world has lost a bright soul~
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Dear, dear Vikki. There are no words to make your loss any easier, your day any brighter, or the emptiness any less painful. I wish I could. But Joe was your rock and your foundation. I know the memories are full of love and will be there to draw comfort from. May you always feel the warmth from your Joseph and know that he is now free from the burdens of illness and has a smile on his face because you made his life so much better. For that, you also need to put the smile back on your face and enjoy the life that meant so much to you both. He will always be there. I love you, dear friend. Always.
Dad~ I miss you with all of my heart & soul, I know you're at peace & are suffering no more pain~ it helps to soften the hurt of you being gone.
I'll be there in my heart, just as you'll always be there in mine... One thing will always remain the same~ I love YOU & you'll be my Father FOREVER~
Joseph, I will miss you mightily.
