Not sure what to say?

Emil we enjoyed being having you and Diane for our neighbors for 13 years. You were always a joy to be around and have conversations with. It wont be the same without you. Will always remember you. We were glad we were here for you when you needed us.Our prayers are with the family.

I am so sorry about Sonny. I wish I could have been there. My prayers are with the family.

My deepest sympathy in the loss of your dad, my friend, Emil. He was like my big brother, helping me in many ways.

I'll never forget my last visit, a couple days before he passed. His mind was still sharp. We talked baseball and he still knew all the players names. He was the biggest White Sox fan I ever knew.

Always a leader at the E J & E and made my long days more bearable. We played baseball, volleyball, baseball and horseshoes at lunch hour...

To the Meader family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Emil was a great person. Thanks to him I was able to stay into baseball in the summer time. I loved being a batboy and keeping the books for him. When I was in Lockport a couple of years ago I stop and spent about three hours visiting him. It was a great visit. We talked about the good old days during my childhood. He showed me a picture back when I was his batboy in little league. Just remember that you will always have great memories...

Kathy, so many great memories of Emil and your family. I am so glad I was able to visit with "E" this past month. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

So very sorry to hear of Emil's passing. He was such a great man who never had an enemy. Although I haven't seen him in years, he is someone that you just don't forget! May you rest in peace my friend and know that you will never be forgotten! God Bless You!

Having lived next door to Emil for twenty-three years, I couldn't have asked for a better neighbor. My thoughts and prayers are with Diane and with Emil's family. May your memories of him give all of you comfort during this difficult time.
