Not sure what to say?

Dear Menke family,
We send our condolences to your family at your mother's passing. What a lovely tribute your La Crosse friends enjoyed via. the La Crosse Tribune. While having dinner last night at the cottage with the Bill and Eulonda Roush and Bill and D.A. Ferguson we all shared our many memories of your family. Including pictures on the deck of your Mom at a "book group" gathering at The Southwind. And later pictures of both your Mom and Dad at the cottage. These are...

Janet and Menke family, I loved your mother. She had a way of making a little kid (like me) feel good about himself. She radiated a love for life and for her family. I treasure getting to know your family throughout my childhood. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Sincere condolences to Mr. Menke and his family on the loss of his wife, Virginia.

Sorry for your loss. This mesage is to let you know that I remember Bill's participation in the Robed Choir and the small group called " Touchstone" while he was at Central High and where he got his talents expressed. I think he was a fine example of the legacy left by his mother.
