Dear Bernie and family,
My prayers are with you and your family during this time of sorrow. I am also Lutheran so we know she is in a better Place. We have not seen each other for many years since the poker games with Paul, Lee, and Jack. But those days bring back good memories. Hearing of this is especially difficult due to the fact that I lost my wife to cancer last Dec. 11. If it would help to talk to someone who also went threw this time of grieving recently my number is 262-679-3408. God's Blessings. Rick Zurstadt
