Not sure what to say?

I knew Fr Landwermeyer in the mid 1970's as a counselor while I attended Marquette University. He was exemplary and helped me to achieve academic excellence by unconditionally guiding and supporting me as a human being in my worldy experience. I admired him. He was a compassionate influence at the time, that contributed to worldly successes. We were tied in Spirit.

God Bless you Brother.

Father Landwermeyer

A great person and mentor from my high school years at Nouvel Catholic Central in Saginaw, MI where Father Landwermeyer was principle in the mid 1980's. May you rest in peace. You will always be remembered.
