By chance, I stumbled on this article. My heart just broke. Mr. Rottner was a class act that came from a generation in which hard work, ethics and helping others meant something. Mr Rottner embodied these traits.

I remember the Thursday nights Mickey played pinnacle with my father. Now they are enjoying a game together.

Hold fast to your memories, to all of the cherished moments of the past, to the blessings and the laughter, the joys and the celebrations, the sorrow and the tears. They all add up to a treasure of fond yesterdays that you shared and spent together, and they keep the one you loved close to you in spirit and thought.
