Our deepest sympathy and heart felt love during this time of grief.

Don't grieve for me; for now I am free. I'm following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I hear his call; I turned my back and left it all. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too will miss. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief; don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

Even though we were divorced, from the day we met til the the day you passed, there was still much love (more than people know) and an undying friendship that is eternal. I love you and will miss you, til we meet again at that great family reunion.

Tato, kocham cię bardziej niż kiedykolwiek ci powiedziałem. Będę tęsknić za tobą wiecznie. Zmieniłeś moje życie w sposób, którego nigdy nie poznasz. Dopóki nie spotkamy się ponownie z Babcią i Dziadkiem, Janem i Miłosierdziem.

Losing our uncle is nothing easy, but knowing that we have been able to be a part of his life, we can realize that we are blessed to have shared in his life before he went to rest in eternal salvation. We will always have fond memories to remember our Big Teddy Bear. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

With all our love,

Families of Janice & Jim Stenpien, Steve & Diane Klarman, Carolyn & Kurt Johnson, and Michelle & John Kiefer
