Uncle Eddy's funeral

To our Gabel cousins, we are very sorry for your dad's passing. Your dad always encouraged me to get into Engineering and that has been a great career for me. He was a great guy and I sure you will miss him.

My deepest sympathy to all of my Gabel family. Uncle Robert was my buddy. While we didn't get to see each other very often, when we did I just LOVED every minute spending time talking, laughing, dancing and hearing his stories. Uncle Robert promised my Dad that if my Dad died before he was able to walk me down the isle, Uncle Robert would be honored to do such task. Uncle Robert wasn't able to walk me down the isle either.

My deepest sympathy to the Gabel family. May God strengthen and comfort you.
