Hey There Handsome! Happy Birthday! I have so many things to talk about with you so I'm putting my list together and when I get to Heaven, you and I have alot to talk about. I know you are watching over all of us because we all feel your presence. We would rather have you here with us so we could squeeze you and hug you for your birthday and your anniversary. I love you forever, big brother.
God, I miss you so much. I can't believe this is 5 years you've been gone. I can't even begin to tell you everything I want to say. My heart aches to talk to you. I love you, Emil and miss you so much.

I can't believe it's been 4 years since we've talked. You are so missed by everyone. I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss having you in my life and having you to talk to. There are so many times that I still feel lost and left behind. I love and miss you so much.

Dad, i just want to tell you i love you and miss you so much. I really just hope you know this.
I've been thinking about you. Sometimes I still have that urge to give you a call. I know that happened alot to me when dad passed away. Watch over us and ask God to give Retha strength. She's got alot on her shoulders. Love you lots.
I have your Santa picture up and look at it everyday. Remember when you used to go out all night on Christmas Eve and come back with all those gifts for yourself from everyone and be a little drunk too. I'm not sure if I ever told you, but I was so proud of you. You need to put your Santa outfit on and take care of those little kids from Sandy Hook school. They need you now. Love you and still miss you so much.
Hi Dad, Its Veterans Day... Love you lots and miss you so much more. Happy Birthday
I've been thinking about you alot lately. It seems like every morning when I go to work, you seem to be with me. It was dad's birthday, so give him lots of hugs for me. It is Veteran's Day on Sunday and you and dad are my true hero's. I can't help it, but there are still so many times that I feel lonely without my immediate family here. I feel left behind. I love you big brother so much and miss you, dad, and mom.

hey dad, i just wanted you to no that i love you, i miss you so much.
Well, here is the two year mark. It just doesn't seem possible. I can close my eyes and hear your voice. I just wish you were here to give us all some advice. We're a mess down here and know one knows what to do. Sometimes I still feel so alone not having my family here with me. Sometimes I feel jealous because you have mom and dad and I don't have any of you. I wish life was different. I wish you were here to put a smile on our faces again because we all need it. You know you were always smarter than me, and you always knew what to do. I don't know what to do to help any of my family. Maybe you could talk to the Lord and ask him to bless me with the lottery. That would help a little. I miss you Emil and this lonliness of my family is as strong today as it felt two years ago. I hate this feeling for myself and for Retha, Steve, Chad, and Patti and your grandkids. Well, I just needed to tell you how I feel today. Like crap! I love you big brother and I wish you were here with us. I know life wouldn't be perfect but our strength and our rock and our hero needs to be here with us.

Not like what we went through. I know it wasn't always perfect but you did a good job and have some great kids to be proud of. Love you and miss you.

I don't know what to do Emil. I feel like everything is going wrong. Family, home. I feel so far away and sometimes that makes me feel helpless. I know I should be thankful that everyone's health is good and I have a job, but I'm worried about Patti and I'm scared about losing the house. Give me sign or guide me as to what to do. I wish I could talk to you. Love you and miss you.

Well, here here it is. I can't believe you have been gone for one year. It just doesn't seem possible. Emil, I know the early years in our lives were not the happiest, but I have to say, we have the best family in the world. You should be so proud of Retha, Steve, Chad, and Patti. I have them here with me and you have mom and dad with you. I miss you Emil, more than you can even imagine. I think of you everyday. I love you big brother. Watch over us and guide us. Love you forever.
Dad, I wish I could talk to you one more time. I have so much to tell you. We all are doing good but not as good as if you were here. Dad We all miss you so much. Its not nearly the same. Gage misses you so much as we all do. I love you dad. I miss your stupid pranks, and your jokes. I miss fighting over the computer. I miss so much more. I wish you would just come home.I would give anything.
I love you so much dad.
I'm thinking of you today. I sure wish you were here with us. Love you forever.

Happy Fathers Day,even though you were't my dad.I was sitting out side on fathers day and i swear i saw you standing by the grill cooking,with a cigaritte in your mouth in your blue shorts and white t-shirt and BLACK dress socks. so i guess things dont always change,one thing for sure that hasnt changed is I LOVE AND MISS YOU very very much.
Happy Fathers day Dad. I miss you so much. I would give anything for you to be here. I would give anything for you to be sitting on the couch having control of the remote. Watching Mash, or Little house on the prairie (oh how I hated that show). I love you Daddy!!
I don't know what happened today, but while I was driving I just started thinking about you and couldn't stop crying. I just feel so alone at times knowing your not a phone call away anymore. I miss you so much, so I can't even imagine how Retha and the kids feel. I started doing more sales at work and I sure wish you could give me some advice. I always said you got all the brains for selling and I missed that boat. Well, Memorial Day is all about our veterans, so Happy Memorial Day. I always think about you and dad and am always thankful the two of you made it home. Love and miss you.
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY.SURE WASNT THE SAME WITHOUT YOU HERE. I MADE HOT DOGS ON THE GRILL BUT DIDNT MAKE THEM THE WAY YOU MADE THEM.SURE MISS YOU .YOU NEED TO GIVE ME ALL YOUR STRENGTH FOR AWHILE .I LOVE YOU PATTI AND THE BOYS WERE HERE THEY ARE GETTING SOOO BIG.PATTI COULD USE YOUR STRENGTH TOO NITE HON LOVE AND MISS YOU

I just was missing you. I have so much that I want to say to you. So much I want to tell you. I love you, miss you, Wish you were here. Everyones been saying it will get easier but I'm still waiting... Its weird. I think when 1 has a bad day or a bad week, its like we all do. I never am on the computer anymore but when i do, I come here, Then I see that everyones writing you at the same time. Tomorrows Mothers day, and I remember growing up wishing I could get her the best gift in the world whether its made from Macaroni or its something to wear. Well this year will be harder then ever. You are not hear!!
Gage and Danny miss you a lot. Danny was asking me the other day about getting him something, I said well you better go call grandpa, It took me a minute to realize what I said. I wondered why he was looking at me.
Gage has my only picture of you. I hope you get his prayers every night. "Now I lay me down to sleep the Angels watch me thru the night and keep in there blessed sight A men, I love and miss you Grandpa and I love everyone In my whole life A men"
I'm sure you knew also before any of us about Larry. That was pretty upsetting. For a man that I never met but grew to love. It was very hard for me. I can only imagine what you and him are causing up there. Your the best dad. I love you, and Miss you.
Hey Dad, I was sitting here thinking about you and how much I miss the calls and your laugh. I can't believe it has almost been a year. I was working on some things around here and was wanting to call you, every time I do Steve answers! I love you dad and think about you everyday. I taught Olivia how to ride a bike, and she yelled at me the same way I did with you. Except when I told her to trust me I won't let go, I DIDN'T, So she didn't hit the curb and fly over the handle bars and fatten up the her lips like I did. but I would do it all over again to just to see your smile when I started riding. I know you saw her riding and we talk about you all the time. We all miss you so much. I hope Larry and you are having a time to remember, I can't thank you enough for all the things you taught me and I hope I am as good a Dad as you were to us. Love you
Hey There. Your on everyone's mind today. That's because we all love and miss you so much. You and Larry need to take care of each other now. Summer is coming and you should be sitting outside at the table or B.B.Qing or yelling at someone! I love and miss you, Emil. Retha's right. It doesn't get any easier. At least not yet.
Well hon,Im very sorry to hear about larry.But im also glad hes not in any pain any more.he"s with his mom and dad and his best friend. I hope for your sake they DONT have JD there,or heaven will never be the same .I love you
Hello dad, I just wanted to tell you that I love you and I miss you sooo much. Wish you were here
Ya know im sitting here feeling sorry for myself again,Thinking how i wish i could call and talk to my mom,funny how that went it weny full circle. Remember when we had a fight when we first got married you always went to my mom to talk to her, before i got the chance,now you get to do it again!!!!Not far man.I just wish you could answer ME.I LOVE and MISS YOU.Give mom dad wally jesse oh hell all my family a hug for me ( ) thats a hug from me
Well they say its gets easier, WELL IT DOSENT.I miss you more each day. I dont know if its becsuse its spring or what. It just sucks.i miss all the little things just a hug from you. Sitting out side drinking ice tea or jack lol i wouldnt care only if you were sitting with me.this isnt how its supposed to be.I know god needed you BUT i need you MORE why couldnt he get that,Ya know its been almost 9 months ,I relive that day every day. babe i love and miss you,the kids have been awesom there here for any thing i need. But its not you.I LOVE YOU!!! i have to go to work noe that the only thing that keeps me sane .BYE FOR NOW
Hey Big Brother,
I'm thinking of you today and missing you. There isn't a day that goes by, that you aren't on my mind. Love you and miss you.
Just wanted you to know that Ive been thinking about you a lot and miss you. I hope you are there to hold Aunt Retha's hand today and let you know you are there.

You know I come to work and have this handsome picture of you on my computer and look at it everyday. I wish so many times that we could talk. Maybe about something, but maybe about nothing. I still feel so alone on this earth at times with you not being here. Retha came down to see me and I just didn't want her to leave. Thank God for Retha and the kids. I know your watching over us and are being our gaurdian angel, but....I just miss you.

Merry Christmas Dad. I really missed hearing your laughter this holiday. It wasn't the same not having you here. We did Ok but we all missed you. You're always in our hearts not just holidays, there isn't a day that goes bye I don't think about you . I Love You dad. talk to you later.
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

:) I love you all
Dad, I was with mom and the family for Christmas. It sure wasn't at all the same without you hear. I wish you could see what mom got me for Christmas. It was a ring with your diamnd in it. This is the best gift i could of gotten. Besides you. I love you daddy, I miss you more
Well, we made it past Christmas and I have to say for me, I really missed hearing your voice. It wasn't the same without you and Ed's mom. I just want to get this year past me. Your family misses you and loves you very much.

Ive been thinking about you alot lately. How the family is so different now. I havent wrote anything here because its hard for me to put things into words and it was so much easier just to talk to you. I want you to watch over them and you know who Im talking about they need to know you are still with them. They both are really kinda messed up with out you here. Thats all for now.
I was waiting for you to call today and say Happy Thanksgiving. I stayed home all day waiting, but guess what...
I miss you, I miss my family. Somehow when you were here, I knew you were only a phone call away. We all need strength to get through these holidays without you and that seems so hard. I need your guidance and I don't know who to turn to. Please watch over all of us and help keep us close. I love you and miss you so much.
All I have to say, Is it wasn't a Thanksgiving without you. We all missed you, Love you dad

I don't know if today was a bad day for all of us or what. I've been in the same situation as Punk, and I'm just not getting any of this, I hear so many people talk about there parents and here they are 80-85 and my father is gone. Dad I wish there was more that I would of done, of more that I wish I would of known. I love you so much, and this is so hard.
You know when I left to go back to WI before all this, I felt bad. Thinking why am I doing this to you and mom. I'm sorry if I upset you when I left. I wish I was hear.
I started playing darts on Tuesday and I don't know if it was a good thing or bad. I started playing with Libby (from Champion) and she told last week, that someone called a few weeks ago and said that one of there friends had siding and windows put in, and they were told to call and ask for "MOE", I know that was hard for to take that call, Dad you are missed by so many people and I still am waiting for you to come home. I know you're gone but yet I don't I read this book daily I dont know if I'm waiting for you to respond or what. Dad you are/were everything to us. I love you. I hope you hear Gage everynight praying and talking to you!!
Love you sooo much Dad! I miss you
Dad, It has been 2 Months and things are getting tough. I really miss you and cant seem to understand Why this all happened. Man I miss talking to you. I have been in this slump and cant seem to shake it, Couple of people have told me that I lost my laughter, Why? I miss you more than you will ever know. I love you dad, I thnk about you all the time.
Today is your birthday and I've thought about you all day today. A part of me smiles because I know if you were here, you would have alot of sarcastic comments how your getting better looking every year. God, I miss you so much. Just by talking with other family, I know you are missed more than you could ever imagine. The hurt is so strong. I wish I could take everyone's pain away. I love you. "Happy Birthday Bro!"
It's been a month now and all I do is think about you. I want to call you to see how work is going and let you know what's going on in my life, but I can't make that call anymore. I was by Retha and the kids again this past weekend and it felt so comforting to be close to them, but I do see and feel the pain. I know what Patti is feeling because I know what it's like to lose a dad who always watched over me and protected me as much as he could. She's been strong for her mom and the boys, but I truely know her pain. I hurt for Retha because I can't even imagine what it's like to lose the love of your life who has been with you for 37 years. I wish I could take her pain away but I can't. I feel at times that she feels lost without Emil at her side. All I can do is love her and pray God gives her strength. Steve and Chad I know feel an emptiness only a son could feel. They have been great to watch over their mom and help her. I cry alot at night when I'm alone because I just can't make this feeling of lonliness go away and I hate that my family is hurting. I know if you were here, you'd make me see the positive side of things. It's just hard for me see that yet, or ever. I love you and miss you more than you could ever imagine.
Love, Your Sister
Dear Retha & kids
I find you in my thoughts everyday wondering how things are going. The loss of Emil was much more than words can explain. I know if I feel this way I can imagine how you feel. I remember Retha how you and Emil were there for me when I lost my mother and your love and encouragement will never be forgotten. I pray for you daily that the hurt gets better because we know it never goes away. Just always remember you note only have a special angel watching over you, it's an angel that wanted no more than for you all to be happy. There are holes in the floor of heaven and he is watching over you all. Think of him, look up and smile.
Well, 4 weeks have gone by and you're still not here. I read this guest book everyday if not 4 or 5 times a day, Just reading what a great person you were and still are. This I will have to say is one of the hardest things ever I've have to deal with. Any of us. You are still so loved dad. Any where I go, there is someone that knows you. I hear so many memories of you and it hurts more. I still love hearing them.
I no im not the onlyone greiving here but I've been hiding from all of it. The things that we are doing to keep your present around. Its still not the real thing. I still really can't believe it. The other day the boys started school, and everyday on my way back from dropping them off, i would see you on the way to have coffee with Henry, I didn't see you thou. It really hit home. Everyday i see a truck thats just like yours but its not you.
You are the greatest man that I know!!
Dad you are missed so much.
Retha, Steve, Chad, and Patti you have my deepest sympathy I hope it gets easier everyday and God will be with you and help you every step of the way!
I still can't believe that this is all happening. I just refuse to accept it. I'm still waiting for him to come running and I mean running past the TV to make it to the bathroom, and Gage just running to make it there before him. :) and dad standing in the hallway Yelling lol and doing the pee pee dance! I've tried my hardest to stay stong for Mom and the boys, trying to keep it somewhat sain. Its just not possible anymore. I realize your not on a trip or a vacation as we all wish he was. Its getting harder and harder to hide my tears. I'm still waiting for him to come home and if I was crying he would wipe my tears and hug me hard and tell me "ill take care of it baby, there is no need to cry" Its hard to think i'll never have that hug again, I so need that big hug now!! I wish I would of said "bye dad, i love you" and hugged you before you went to work that day.
I have so many regrets right now so it's not making any of this easier. I'm trying my hardest to laugh at all the funny things you did. Us just a few weeks ago sitting on the couch and trying to hit the cat with the ball, or you bringing me home just a little intoxicated, or you coming home after your usual Wednesday night trying to be home before mom got home. Like she didn't know or when you came home and can barly stand saying "baby I need some food!"
I know I said I love you just 30 minutes before this all happened. I'm sorry I was rushing you off the phone because the other line was ringing. I wish I could of talked to longer so you wern't alone.
You are the greatest man I've always known this. They say that daughters look for a man just like there father, Oh Gee im going to be single forever. There isn't a man that can compare to my father!
By the way, Dad when you gave me $100 to go get a gallon of milk, the change was always in my purse. It was never in my car. Thank you for the night out!!!
Since a few days have passed and as I read so many wonderful memories Emil has made with people, it makes me so proud of him and proud to be able to say that I am his sister. He touched more lives than I could ever have imagined. My loss is also so many other people's loss. I can't help it, my brother was just the best!
To the Kraemer Family,
I wish I could remember my childhood days when I used to come over and sleep over with Patty. I am so sure there are a lot of fond memories of you. I do remember you being very goofy and had a sense of humor. I know you are loved by so many people. I wish I was able to make it to the services but was unable to. I just want you to know that I will take care of your baby girl Patty and I will never turn my back on her. She will always have a shoulder to cry on when she needs one and a ear to listen so she can talk about memories of you. You were a great Dad and Patty was so very proud of you and proud to call you her father. She spoke high of you. You are her idol. You will be deeply missed. Your family and dear friends are in my prayers.
To Retha and the children, and my cousin Chris; my heart is breaking for you. I know what it is to lose someone you love. I know the pain, heartache and devastation you are feeling. May God be with you and give you strength to go on until you and Emil are together again.
My memories of my cousin Emil are of our early years (maybe 4-10 years of age). I remember my mother Joan and my Aunt Nettie were always together. They were sisters. They used to take me, my brother Rick, Emil, and Chris everywhere together. One time they even took us all to Chicago to see the Queen when she was there. Those were the good old days.
One thing that sticks in my mind about Emil is his love of mashed potatoes and gravy. When he was just a little boy he would get money from my uncle Emil and headed straight aross the street to a little restaurant. He plunked himself down on a stool, and ordered mashed potatoes and gravy. The waitresses all got a kick out of Emil.
I wonder if they have mashed potatoes in Heaven.
Well Daddy, I guess its my turn to say something. Never ever did I expect this. I thought you were invinsable. To us you were. I've asked myself why he would take you away from us and I'm not getting an answer!!! You brought us kids together again but damn it, this wasnt the way to do it. I wish I wasn't so pig headed (like u were) when you told me months ago to call my brothers. I'm sorry! you being gone and being in this house, I'm waiting for you to walk in. I know you're watching over us but to me thats not enough. I want you here! I hear people say "he's in a better place" that's BS. I wouldn't ever fight with you over the computer, or leaving the bathroom door open, Ill help you hide your shirts from mom and ill tell you I love you every time you leave the house.
I sit here and think about the future and its so hard to think of it without you in it. With all the people here this week even thou it was for support, it wasn't right that you weren't here. I can see you sitting at the end of the table with your hand on your head laughing so hard from punky telling the story about "uncle sak" only the 100th time we've heard it but its still funny as the 1st. or even Steve telling you a dumb joke, it wasn't right.
I'm going to miss the calls everyday saying "hey baby" or you tormenting Gage. Thanks a lot dad for bringing out his bad temper, you would think that us 3 kids had your temper was enuff!! :)
You have no clue how much you were loved and how much you're going to be missed. Its not supposed to be like this and I still cant accept this. Dad I love you more then you will ever no.
I am very sorry to here about emil.I grew up seeing emil and chris alot and he would tease me alot.I am sorry Retha I couldn't come to the funeral you and patty,punky,and steve and families.We LOVE you guys alot wish we were closer to be with you.
LOVE Scott and Cindy Mielke
In these last 35 years my cousin Emil and I haven’t been in touch very often,but I see that Emil A. Kraemer has by all measures become a Fantastic Boss and Employee, a Loving, Caring and Nurturing Father and Husband, a Rock Solid Big Brother to Christine and a steadfast friend to all he met and befriended. As long as we all have treasured Memories and a few photos Emil will never truly be gone to us. God bless all those he Loved and all who loved him. May they have the strength to carry on through this large hole that has been put before them. “Moe” will be missed by many!
Retha (and your family) I am so sorry for you loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Your Wal-mart family is there for you anytime and we love you.
Steve, Retha Patty and Chad,
There are no words that can truly comfort you at this time of loss. You all have been in my thoughts and prayers since we heard of your loss. You have our deepest sympathy. Our families will always have a special bond. I know Emil will be missed by all. Bob & Janice Diangikis
Reading through the guest book there is a common theme - Emil brought a lot of sunshine wherever he went. I know this to be true. I also know that he was the big brother that everyone would love to have. His sister, Chris has been my best friend for 30 plus years and there is no doubt about her passion for her big brother. She did not need any other siblings - Emil was/is the whole package. The world will be different now, without Emil. But, nothing can take away the wonderful memories. Hang on tight to those memories, they will get you through. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
God Bless you all.
Once again I can't imagine where your family is, I can't imagine being in your footsteps. I just know that your dad was one if not the best dad that could ever exist. Know your dad is the best that ever has been, not only to you kids but to the rest of us kids. To Emil the best man that has ever possible been here on Earth. Thanks for everything you have done and been there for. I will make a pot of Red Beans and Rice for you this weekend.
Chad and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you at this difficult time. Remember, that all things work exactly as they should according to God's plan.
Dad, as I sit here reading all of the entries, I can truly you say you have touched the hearts of many people. You have no idea how much you have inspired my life and always will. You always made it a point to put your Family and your friends first. Dad you gave me enough memories to last forever, your laughter would always fill the room with joy. I am going to miss you day in and day out. the thing that made me the happiest about being your son was the fact that you and mom have stayed together through the good times and in bad. I knew I always would have you there for advice, You taght me how to make people laugh and to be there for people when they needed a friend. I feel everything I know is because you have taught it to me, even how to throw tools when a job isnt going your way( it usually helped until I have to run to lowes and spend a $100 on a new drill or saw). I love you Dad, I will miss the phone calls while I'm at work to tell me a joke or how someone made you laugh. Don't worry about us we have what you have taught us to get through these tough times. I Love you forever. P.S. I hope this wasn't your way of getting out of finishing the trim in the dinning Room, Dont worry well finish it.
I remember the first time meeting you. Steve had told me "dont be nervous,my dads a big man, but he wont bite-he'll just tease you alot." and boy was he right! By the end of the night, i remember saying to Steve,"well that was easy-maybe its going to be your Mom i should be worried about." Needless to say, you and your whole family made it very easy for me and the girls to become and feel like part of the family. we all are going to miss you dearly. I am glad i had the chance to get to know you-and the great memories you left with your family are whats going to hold them together. And Steve, i love you and i'll be by your side always.
ITHOUGHT I SENT A SENTAMENT YESTERDAY BUT ITS NOT THERE I LOVE ALL YOU KIDS LIKE MY OWN I REALLY WILL MISS EMIL CHRIS I LOVE YOU AND REATHA AND CHAD AND PUNKY I CAN'T MAKE I AM JUST UNABLE
TO TAKE SUCH A LONG TRIP BUT,I AM THERE
IN THOUGHT AND PRAYERS YOU COULND'T HELPBUT LIKE EMIL HIS PERSONALITY WAS SO LIKEABLE HE MADE YOU LAUGH AND HAD FUN ALL THE TIME I KNOW YOU ARE WATCHING OVER ALL YOUR FAMILY NOW
We had the pleasure of meeting Emil, "Moe", at Champion Windows. We will never forget his patience and help while we decided what we wanted in siding and windows. We could not have asked for a better person to help us. We will always fondly remember Moe. Our prayers and deepest sympathies to your family.
We all are saddened when we hear of someone we knew passing on but it brings on a flood of good memories about that person and their family.I remember Emil's laugh and how he would travel with "Blackie'to support his family.It's not easy going on the road but Emil was a good father and husband who took on his responsibility and did it well. I remember Emil's father sitting at the same spot in the kitchen waiting for his beer deliveries and Chris making an excellent dinner of fried chicken and mashed potatoes when you lived next door on Mill rd. Emil and his father sure looked the same.I remember when you lived at the apartment with the swimming pool and I was really embarassed but I wore that undersized swim suit that Steve gave me to wear and came to the pool with my lily-white body leaving nothing to the imagination.I remember Rethas big hair because she was so tiny and I laughed when I read that you still call Chad Punk.Patty was a beautiful little girl the last time I saw her and I know Chris adored her as well as Steven & Chad.Time passes too quickly but memories stay forever and all my memories of your family are pleasant ones.Retha,Steve, Chad, Patty and Chris, I am sorry for your loss but I am sure you will all be comforted by the many memories you share of Emil.I'm sorry I can't be there but you are all in my thougts. Roger Grady
I have thought all day about the right things to say so that everyone would know what a wonderful man you were Moe, but there's not enough room here for that. There's people you meet through life that leave a memory or two, but not you Moe, every day for five years that I worked for you was a memory that I will never forget. I loved you so much and my heart is truly broken for Retha and your kids. Good Old Moe, my "Honey" and I will miss you forever and I have no idea how I'm ever going to be able to make Corned Beef again without being able to call you. Thank you for everything you did for myself and Tim and Liz. We will never forget you and will always love you. P.S. I hooe they have Jack in heaven.
to the famley I have the greatest mem of moe he was a great frend and a great golf partner will miss him he was their fore me when I lost my wife god will keep him and he will be in my hart guy wilcox
Retha, Steve, Punk, Patti. I have nothing but fond memories of Emil going clear back 35 years to when you all (at least 4 of you) lived on Mill Rd. He was taken way way too soon. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers always.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
Brian and Lisa Lunde
( I will miss you Grandpa, Love Olivia)
TO THE FAMILY, WE ONLY MET MOE ONCE AT THE MCKINLEY PUB. HE WAS A FRIEND OF MY DAUGHTER,JILL LIVINGSTON AND HER FRIEND CHUCK. YOU COULD TELL HE WAS A GOOD MAN AND A FRIEND TO MANY PEOPLE. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH THE FAMILY.
I am very sorry for your loss Steve and Bobbie.
Retha, Patty, Chas and Stever. I am so sorry to hear of your loss, Emil was always there for everyone. You guys are in my thoughts and prayers. You know he is smiling down on all especially his"bride"
My heartfelt and deepest sympathy goes to your family Steve. I had the privilege of meeting your father once and could tell that he was a wonderful man.
I never thought I'd be reading this obituary. When people say God always takes the good ones that is sure what he did with Emil. I will always remember his laughter and how he made everyone else laugh. What a great Santa Claus he was to the kids when they were young and the story he told about sneezing so hard his eye's popped out. You will truly be missed by all who knew you. My heart, thoughts and love to you Retha and the kids. Love Mikki
Another Marine Reporting Sir...
The Marine Corps League owes a big debt of gratitude to Moe. He took over the club at it's very lowest point. It would have been more sensible to close the club, lock the doors, and sell the building, BUT Moe would have no part of that. He loved the Marine Corps League and he even more so, he love the kids that Toys for Tots helped. He was all about the Marines and the kids!

I can't even begin to say how I feel like a part of me is so empty. After our father passed, Emil was my rock and my mentor. I love you dear brother. I miss you so much already. I will always feel you on my shoulder watching over me. You are now my angel.
Moe, Thank you for always being so wonderful to me. You really helped me through some tough times in my life. You were like a Father figure to me. When I started working for you at the Marine Corp you really took me under your wing (my Mom too). I am going to miss you dearly & will never ever forget you! I love you!
Emil I REALLY AM GOING TO MISS YOU, I AM SO HAPPY YOU ARE IN MY LIFE. I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU TOUTHED!!!LOVE YOU BUBS
My condolences to you and your family Patti. Your Dad sounds like a wonderful man. I adore Danny and I am glad you and I are getting to know each other. Hold your memories close to your heart. He will stay with you forever. Much love from Nick, Brendan, and I.
