Love and miss you Pop. It's to quiet around here. It's going to take time to get use to this. Give my family a hug for me and tell Stefan I miss him dearly .

Buddy was the heart and soul of Langenstein Super market for many years. We have never seen anyone as dedicated as he was. My dad, Richard Langenstein, thought the world of him. I'm sure they are together again telling stories and sharing a beer. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and Lisa at this difficult time.

I am overjoyed to have had the pleasure of meeting you on numerous occasions. I enjoyed breaking bread and having a beer or two over the years. I considered you one of the greatest of the greatest generation.

To the Hodgkins family, I hope knowing that you're in the thoughts and prayers of many bring a measure of comfort. We look forward to the time when all things that cause sickness and death will be eradicated by God's Kingdom. - Matthew 6:9-10

My deepest condolences to the family.
May the God of love console your
grieving heart during the loss of
your dear beloved one.
May the family forever cherish the
fondest memories shared together.
During the challenging days ahead,
may the LORD carry your burdens,
and give you the needed strength
to endure.
My sincere and heartfelt prayers
are with you.
(Psalms 121)
