Debbie and Dan,
Just heard the sad news about your dad and want you to know that I have you in my thoughts and prayers. I fondly remember your dad's cool album collection and listening to Foreigner 4 over and over during our high school years in Denmark. Hope you find peace during this difficult time.

God knew your back pain wasn't going to get any better so he decided to take you home. You had suffered long enough.

God also knew what a very talented man you were as f a r as working with your hands. You could build or repair anything. Remodeling the house in Denmark, building a beautiful trunk for Jean,and sending me a very special gift for my milestone birthday.

Working with your hands also carried through when you volunteered for 3 different police departments. Gordy called himself the "radio tech". He took care of all of installing radios and repairing the ones that needed to be fixed. He loved helping out and being a part of the team. He always liked to be busy.

Gordy and Jean said that Oregon was their little part of paradise(nothing like he is seeing now), but loved to come back home to Wis. for vacation.
First and foremost, we had to go to Mercks for Friday fish fry and a few browsers. If his friend Eddie Biebel was playing it was a great night. He thought the world of that kid.

Jean is going to be OK. The kids are great and doing well. Please know that
we will all miss you very much.

I will always be proud to call you my big brother and I love you.

Dear Dan, Debbie and Family,

I am shocked and saddened to learn of your dad's passing. I hope it was peaceful and pain free. Just the other day I was remembering seeing your dad, Debbie and little Gracie at Way-Mor Park a couple years ago when Eddie entertained there. Good memories of your dad, always smiling and sharing words of kindness. When I babysat for you kids, he used to call me Sunshine. I got a kick out of that. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope many happy memories help you through this sad time.

Love and Blessings,

Jeanne Biebel
