Not sure what to say?

All that we shared, all that is now memory, all that we did contributed to our having had the mandate to serve,laugh, live at a time that gave us reason to be. Thank you, dear comrade, wonderful friend, always a brother. Missing you over these years still did not prepare me for your absence.

We said a formal goodbye to Vic Schoonover this afternoon. Vic with his powerful preaching, his booming laughter, his bear hugs, his fearless battles for justice, his mandate to care for the least of God's children, his loving guidance, and his uncompromising faithfulness. Vic who went to heaven and left a great big hole in our world. Today we heard wonderful words and were astonished by how he managed to fit so many good works into so little time. Today we met in the place that he loved and...

Heaven is a bit more joyful that Vic now.

Rev. Schoonover, his work, his church's commitment to social justice and humanitarianism will not be forgotten by this City's Mexican American Population. I am posting a photo of him grouped with Rev. Navarro, and long time Lutheran volunteer and co-founder of the food pantry Al Rodriguez, I took when I 1st arrived in Omaha in the late 1970's. I salute a true advocate and a wonderful human being.....

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I used to call on Vic when I served as Dean of Admissions at Midland Lutheran College. He was always gracious.He was a sense of wisdom in the Lutheran church. Later I found out that he was a close friend of my father-in-law, the Rev. Dr. Del Wiemers. Continue to do God's work from your new home. Respectfully-Gregg Kupfer

I want to send my condolences; want to know who I am Max green was my husband and I went to North high saying hi in the halls to Ardi.

So very Sorry for your loss! he was an amazing man who touched many lives. Peace to you all in this difficult time!

I've only known Vic for a short time,
but knowing Ardi and a few of his wood
working friends, that he lived a
wonderful blessed life. I leaves this
world a better place.
