Friends from grade school through high school and always had fun even into our 60s. Nothing put a smile on his face as much as getting multiple skins or greenies during a round of golf. One of his favorite sayings was, lets shut out Thurston, which was a joke among some of us. I'll never forget you Jeff, thanks for being my friend......

To the Redick Family,
You have my sympathy in the loss of Susie. I became acquainted with her at the Merle Norman studio. I always looked forward to our visits. She was very knowledgeable about cosmetics and their application but her real passion was her family. She loved to share updates about her family members and to show me the latest photos on the wall of the studio. She was so proud of each family member and their accomplishments. Susie was a woman with class and warmth, a unique combination. She will be missed.
Sincerely,
Brenda Keller

A couple of summers ago, I came home to visit Mom and Dad. I was at the corner of High and Waverly and saw Diane. We had a vey nice chat. When I got back to the farm, I told Dad I got to talk with Diane. He brought back to my memory what a wonderful singer she was in school. And that Diane and Sharon used to sing together. I guess heaven needed another singer for the choir. I am truly sorry for your loss. I am thinking and praying for you.

Dear John, Kathy and family, As I recall the years you and Susan have been our neighbors, one of the things that has impressed me the most is your love of natural things. Living in harmony with our world was so important to Susan and continues to be with you, John. John, I can't imagine the pain of loss in your heart today. Losing a best friend, lover, and life partner is difficult to put into words. No one understands your loss but God. May He give comfort and peace in this most difficult time. May the love of friends and family carry you through these challenging days. Just want to say, I am here for you. Bring your coffee and come share with us anytime.

Michael Kich left a message on November 25, 2016:
I was one of Susan's yoga students several years ago, and I was very, very sorry to hear about her illness. My mother told me earlier this evening that she passed away, and it's difficult for me to wrap my head around somehow, though it shouldn't be surprising to me, I know. She was always patient and never pushed her students too hard, always emphasized relaxation and groundedness over achieving difficult poses for their own sake - she was how a teacher ought to be. She was a wonderful and kind teacher, and I'll miss her.
Diana Crozier left a message on November 25, 2016:
As Angels sang that day every sweet refrain of Amazing Grace, Heaven opened the gate and the children came when they saw her face. As happy as they were to see her coming, we will be just as sad to have to watch her go, but knowing what we know about heaven, believing that she's all the way home, knowing that she's in heaven is all we ever need to let her go. We could hope we could pray her back, but why would we do that when she's where life and love never ends, knowing what we know about heaven.... Every voice made a joyful sound, how sweet the sound as the saints rejoiced, but for every broken heart remember new life begins on streets of gold. For every tear that falls from our eyes we know the sun is shining now where she is...knowing what we know about heaven... You will be greatly missed, Susan. Thank you for all you have given. It is only temporary...

I met SUSAN at a yoga class at UNOH. She was filling in for another teacher and we just clicked. She is the person who helped me find my yoga school to go to and get my yoga teacher certificate. She was to me a mentor and great friend. I truly believe she is one of the main reasons I have my love and passion for yoga. She inspired me to become a teacher without her I'm not sure I would have my business. She was one of those people that not only guided and taught you but would listen and take advice. When you find someone in your life who puts you on the path you should be on it is the greatest gift to ever receive. That was SUSAN for me. She will be forever remembered and I will still tell my students about the great woman who helped me be who I am today. Thank you SUSAN you will be forever missed.

I cried last evening when I read the sad news of Susan's passing yesterday. A good childhood friend of mine passed away from cancer in March. Susan sent me a message of condolence saying my friend was too young. She was two years older than Susan. Susan was also too young, but both of them were angels of God while here on Earth. I am missing them both. But I know God said they accomplished what He requested of them. Susan is loved and will always remain in our hearts. We miss you!

I cannot express my prayers enough to Steve's family. The lose of a family member is hard enough but to go through two in such a short time must be unbearable.
I knew Steve when he was younger as my neighbor. He was always kind & polite to everyone. And from what I have read, he continued that into his adult life.
Although we all grew up and went on with our own lives, our families remained close. We all asked about each other whenever we would meet. I know he loved his family and his job.
Prayers to his children and entire family.
Kathy Latimer left a message on November 17, 2016:
I knew Steve as an Auxiliary member at Auglaize Sheriff's Office. I was a dispatcher and when he was there in the office, if we got busy he would help answer phones. You could count on him to help if you asked him. He will be missed!
Eric Chrismer left a message on November 16, 2016:
Steve was one of my best friends, growing up, and we had so many memorable times. We met in elementary school, and became close friends. He got me to join a Saturday morning bowling league when we were still very young; we found and created mischief together riding our bikes around Wapak; were in band together, and we shared a Driver's Ed car together. As people do, we got a little busier in High School with our individual responsibilities, but we made sure to find time to occasionally chase down a few leads we had on some of that incredibly alluring mischief. After high school, we went in different directions for a couple decades, but thankfully, because of the internet, we were reunited just a few years ago, and it was as if we had never lost touch.

Steve was a great person, a lifelong friend, and from reading other friend's posts online, he turned out to be an even better man than I realized. I am truly sorry for the loss his family has had to endure over the last few weeks, and I'm sorry for everyone who knew and loved him. He leaves a big hole in all of our hearts, and he will be sorely missed. Godspeed, Burk.

Martha and I shared many laughs at Northwestern Local High School in Raymond , Ohio. We graduated in 1958. I always had thoughts of Martha during the years after school, wondering how she was , where she was. We reconnected at an Alumni dinner about 1996. She told me that she had written many country songs and that one was about me. One of her songs was recorded by Loretta Lynn , but the song about me was never published and Martha said it was in the can. A term used in the recording industry.
Martha, I am sorry that I never found the time to take you to lunch as we had spoken about on the phone. Rest in peace with your Lord. I will see you again someday and you can sing the words that you wrote about me , to me.

While we are all sad to see Norma go we also celebrate her life and the hope we have through our lord Jesus, as followers of Christ, that we will all be reunited some day in the presence of our Lord. I believe that Paul's teachings in 1 Thessalonians describes it best:

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Mom, it has been too long since my last note to you. Nothing much has happened, I have times when I want to call you then remember - we now can chat without a phone. Remember when we lived in Cridersville and had a party line. I do wish you could give me a hand cleaning the house like you use to - your angel wings would make a perfect duster! Love You!

Merry Christmas Mom. Sorry I could not post this earlier. It was not a merry day for me. The worst was my birthday and Christmas Eve. You and I always drove around on Christmas Eve looking at all the lights. Everyone else had places to be so you and I started our own tradition. I had your charm bracelets that had all the kids and grandkids on them taken apart and gave everyone back their charms. I know that is what you would have wanted done. I listened to my voice mail from last year you calling and telling me happy birthday and wondering where I was. So many things I wish I had done differently or said to you. I pray you always knew how much I loved you. I could not bring myself to make our favorite cookies this year, maybe next year. April has really tried to help me through this time but it just isn't the same. I wonder how your first Christmas in heaven was. I am sure you are surrounded by family and friends who you missed so very much. I know grandma was there waiting with open arms and how happy you were to be with your mama again. I miss you mom, but I know you are with our savior and Lord Jesus and that makes me smile. I will make our traditional New Years Eve snacks and I will drink a glass of Uncle Don's juice for you!

Missing you mom.

Mom just one year ago you were here and we celebrated Thanksgiving together. This year there was a huge void. Unknowingly I continue to go to call you but then reality sets in. I missed you at the table but as the song I picked played at your funeral says....save a place for me I will be there soon. We will enjoy the wedding supper of the Lamb together. I plan on setting next to you! I love you mom!

Mom,
Thanksgiving came and went and I am sorry to be late telling you how much you are missed at this time - our first Thanksgiving without you. Late the morning of Thanksgiving Day Robin called me holding back the tears "by now I would have received a call from mom". "Happy Thanksgiving! Are you watching the parade?" Yes, mom you are missed. I waited about an hour and called Robin "Happy Thanksgiving! Are you watching the parade?" No, it wasn't the same, please know how much we miss you. Love

Kacia and I are going tomorrow night for a church service to add a ornament to the tree in remembrance of you this holiday season. You would be amazed that you granddaughter (Nicki) has already decorated her outside for Christmas. You always loved to go with me to see the lights. I miss you mom. But I know you are in the presence of the Lord and it doesn't get any better than that.

Hi Mom, I love this picture of you it was taken in Cincinnati on February 14, 1945. You were almost twenty. I wonder what your life was like then. People need to ask questions of family members long before they leave. We are expecting hurricane Matthew tonight. I spent the day at home getting prepared. I thought of calling you because Audie Murphy and Sandra Dee were on in The Wild and the Innocent. Whenever Audie was on one of us would call the other because we loved him! I miss being able to pick up the phone and chat.

Eddie saved our daughter and that is my story and I am sticking to it. We would camp at Huston Woods every Sept for a softball tournament. Eddie worked with my husband and they played ball together. One day while camping we were all standing at a cliff when suddenly our daughter age 7 lost her footing and began falling. Before anyone could react Eddie was rolling right behind her until he could reach her. He carried her up with a few bruises and scratches and to safety. That was Eddie, never thinking twice about helping someone in need. It was the campfire story for years "remember when Eddie saved Chellie" and continues to be a story our daughter tells her children. Eddie your black jeep and that pup tent you camped in will forever be a part of our Huston Woods memories. Rest in the Lords arms my friend.

We think that in life, our older family members and siblings will pass on before the younger ones. We expect our younger siblings to outlive us. For Jane, this did not happen. She had been ill for quite some time, yet made the very best of her situation with her family and her four legged baby, Buster.
Jane, You will always be my rock! Your unwaivering strength and attitude through all of your life is simply one that I am in awe of! I have nothing to complain about because you have been so very strong through it all! Your home was always "Command Central" for all of us! A home filled will love for your children. I miss your "Jane-isms" and your infectious smile and laugh! God and the Angels welcome you Home, filled with pain-free days now. I know you have your wings because you were an Angel here on earth! God Bless you and your family! Until we are together again!

Who is going to play golf in miserable weather with me, I could always count on Gil to play. Some days we were the only players on the course. We will miss his passion for golf and life. He worshiped you, Sharon, and was ever so proud of his kids. He bragged about Randy hundreds of times, and wondered why Sharon was so good to him. He said he did not deserve her over and over. The guy just wore out, he lived life with intensity until he just ran out of gas. We are really going to miss him. I will never forget his 80th birthday at Woody's in Florida and how he picked up the tab for like 12 of us.

I remember when they said they were moving to Columbus and it made me sad to know I probably wouldn't see them again. I wished them luck and said goodbye. They are beautiful people I will remember always. May God bless your family at this time of sorrow.swxh4

Ronnie and I were good friends. He was also so happy and was a good bus rider. He never gave me any problems, except for the time that no one was at home when he got there. After ice cream and a rocking chair, his dad came to my house and took him home. This ended up to be a solution to a very minor problem.
Nan & Dave Krueger left a message on June 23, 2016:
Ronnie was a very special person. He loved hugs, sharing. He was the love of Jesus. He will be greatly missed. What a reunion there will be in heaven. My deepest sympathy to those who must wait for their heavenly departure to see Ronnie in his new heavenly body.

And that he is back with your Mom again....as I don't EVER remember seeing one without the other. I have happy memories from long ago, especially camping together one time in Southern Ohio....water skiing, swimming out of the boat, and laying on our backs counting stars before bed. Good times. Danny and I retired and moved to FL last year so we couldn't have come for the funeral anyway....but know that our hearts and prayers are with you all.

Wayne could definitely be a pistol and let you have it sometimes, but he did it because he cared. I worked with Wayne for almost 4 years at MACC, looking back now I wish it could of been longer...Wayne, I didn't always like to see you calling on the work phone, but I always enjoyed talking to you regardless if you were calling to yell at me or not. I will never forget how you sounded when you answered your phone and your one-of-a kind laugh. May you rest in peace and catch lots of fishys on the other side.

The memories are so many and even though it has been a long time since we had seen each other it was always little sis.

You will be missed greatly but your many fun, crazy, loving memories will remain with all your family, extended family and countless friends.

Dave and I had to help each other do chin-ups in gym class at South, as we were both a bit "portly". It was a little embarrassing but we laughed it off anyway.

That's Dave. He could lift you up and make you laugh.

Whenever I would go to Dave and Anita's, and to his Mom and Dads, I always felt welcomed and right at home. True hospitality at it's best.

It would be easy for me to ramble on and on about Dave and his family as there are so many stories to tell, as anyone who knows him can attest to.

My condolences to you and the kids, Anita, as well as to you, Inis and Tracey.

Thanks for sharing Dave with me,

Lived a block south of "Burl" when growing up in Lima. Walked to Irving Elementary with him a number of times before our having classes together at Central Jr. High and LSH. Always liked him and the tall, but "true" stories he would tell in his very early years. Thoughts and condolences are extended to his family and close friends.

Marty. Sorry to hear of Arts passing. I always enjoyed doing business with Art. He and you were always so helpful and pleasant. I was sad when he shut the business down, but I guess it was for the best. I remember the time, fondly, when his men were busy, he took the time to do a job out of town himself for me! What a great person, what a great heart!

As a father and grandfather, my heart goes out to Nick's family. I worked with Nick at Reineke. During the time he was in clean up crew, he always was one who jumped to the task at hand. He told me then he always wanted to be a car salesman.
He told me again when I sold him a Caddy from our trade row so I suggested he apply for it. I am glad he did, he was always happy while he was doing what he loved. He will surely be missed.

Ruth Frazier left a message on April 16, 2016:
Isabel was my sister-in-law. She and Wendell's son Todd drove to Dallas to attend Wendell and my wedding in the Lover's Lane United Methodist Church in July 1985. From that day we were friends. When Wendell's two sisters, Isabel and Lucille, would sit around the table and talk, there was absolutely no tolerance from either of them for any critical remark or judgment on Wendell! The three of them stood solid against all fronts! Isabel was 16 1/2 years older than Wendell. He was born of an older Mother, Effie. Isabel became Wendell's second Mother, guiding, gifting, standing beside him all of her life.
Another memory that stands out is that I grew tired of hiring "the only thing we know about our family is that they came from Pennsylvania". I invited the two ladies one day about 20 years ago, to go to Circleville to learn what we could about the "family". After searching at the courthouse, an attendant inquired whether we had visited the Genealogical Library across the street!
We had lunch then made the visit. After researching what was available, an attendant inquired whether we had talked with "Rev. Frazier"? They dialed his phone and handed it to me. He inquired of our father's name when we
responded "Harvey". He then said "Well, young lady, your grandfather's name was John, his father was Jacob, his father was James and his father was John Fraser of Pennsylvania! As a retired Methodist Minister he had researched the family having discovered "the family". He descended from William, brother of James. He invited us to visit with him the next weekend. We drove home in a blinding snow storm phoning Wendell on arrival. The next weekend we visited with Rev. Frazier and his wife in their home taping every word he said. We learned there was a book "Red Morning" documenting John's wife Jane Bell Frazier's escape from the Indian's in Ohio, walking back to Bedford PA! From that we learned all about "the family". What an experience.

Having just returned home, we were saddened to learn of Bud's passing. It was always a pleasure to sit and talk with Bud, especially since our families were so close even going back to the time when our parents were best of friends. Carolyn and I went to Lima and spent some time with Bud a year ago, and we enjoyed being with him. It was just like old times. As always, there is regret that we didn't spend more times with him. Our sympathies are with his family.

Met Bud in the mid 80's when he came to me at the Allen County Airport wanting to get current for instrument in his Beech Sport. Then in his sixties went on to get his flight instructor certificate, ended up with his Super Decathlon aerobatic plane in the picture after his Citabria ("airbatic spelled backwards") got to teach him in that plane as well and he asked me if he was ready to give aerobatic rides and I told him he could start with my family. Admired him for being productive TEACHING his strudents, sharing his love for aviation, playing Santa Claus, a contributor to his community and defintely not a whiner. Amazing person, pilot, teacher, and my friend. Hopefully he's doing aerobatics now!c7

Why can't be like that old wise bird?
Samantha Miller left a message on April 1, 2016:
I worked for a few years at an office where Bud came in to and he always gave us hugs and told us stories. Every time he checked out with us, we tell him to have a great day and he always replied "If I don't, it my own fault". No matter what he was always positive about the cancer and life. He was one of the few that left a great impression on me for life. May God be with your family and all of his friends during this time of reflection.

I am sorry for the loss. Mr. Cook was by far the best substitute teacher I have ever had> His poem resonated with me for years and still does to this day.
Robin Anderson left a message on March 31, 2016:
I labsolutely loved Bud!
He was the best neighbor, especially at Christmas time when he would dress up as Santa Claus! All you had to do was to leave the presents outside the front door for your kids and he would put them into his Santa sack and distribute to your kids. Bud this for many years, until my kids had outgrown Santa. But what a wonderful man he was for the kindness and generous spirit he exuded.
Probably the most memorable to many that knew him, especially his students, was his poem, The Wise old Owl!
I need a copy of that!
Lastly, a few years ago I watched the movie "UP" and Bud ito me was absolutely a match for the title character.
So much so that I just had to buy him that DvD for Christmas!
We Will most surely miss your wit, humor and your walks with the doggys around our block.... You touched so many people with your wonderful wit and generous personality, you were a "shining and unique star" who will Never be forgotten.
Robin and Joe

My brother Adrian had him the time he passed...I was in the office when he was resigning his job, me being in 6th grade at the time, didn't know what that meant. The last thing he said to me was, "Bye Seigler, I'll see you some other time man." I'll never forget that. He was the only teacher that I got 100% on every one of my math tests for 5 times in a row. His legacy continues to live on in the Bath Community and in our Hearts. We love and miss you Mr. Winegardner.

Uncle Steve,
It's been 5 years now and I just opened up this page for the first time. I started reading through all the memories people have left and realized I have never wrote one. I have so many memories from me as a little girl.. from you teaching me to play piano, to you drawing me pictures. I still have the one that you drew of you and I on one side and a funny silly one on the other. I LOVE that picture and it remains a special gift. I always think of you and the first thing that comes to mind was when we were on that walk to the creek and you said I looked so tan "ohh lalala" that saying reminds me of you every time. I miss you Uncle, Grandma misses you .. we all miss you. I pray for grandma every day so that she can be strong, some days are harder for her than others but the anniversary of this day is never easy. We love you and think of all the time! Please keep looking over Shandi and her kids, over grandma & grandpa, & over me and the boys!Until I see you again uncle steve... I love you ❤

Please accept my most sincere sympathy on the loss of Swastica. She and I met years ago when I was working at Brookside Animal Hospital. Her passion for animals, especially her connection with cats, was very evident. Swastica had a deep love for her daughters that could not go unnoticed. When she entered the clinic with her gorgeous smile and the girls in tow, my heart would sing! Taken away all too soon, Swastica will forever remain in my heart. I am sending love and prayers at this most difficult time.

Uncle Arlo was a huge part of my life as a kid. Every Saturday Uncle Dave would take me and Shane over to his house be it the city or his country home to watch Ohio State. Me and Shane would watch half the game and go play outside for the other half. We'd usually get Ralphie's wings too. It was one of my favorite childhood memories watching Arlo smoke cigars and cuss at Ohio State. I loved him so much, and I'm sorry I couldn't make the showings. R.I.P Arlo. GO BUCKS!

If You COULD SEE ME NOW

If you could see me now, you wouldn't shed a tear,
Though you may not understand why I am no longer here.
Remember my spirit, that's the real me.
I'm still very much alive, Oh, if you could only see!
I've beheld our Fathers face. I've touched my Savior's hand.
The angels all rejoiced as I entered the Promised Land.
Beyond the gates of pearl, I walk on golden streets.
I've touched the walls of jasper, dipped my foot in the crystal sea.
The beauty is beyond words, nothing can compare.
I've even seen your mansion;someday I will meet you there.
All Jesus to be your guide, His word will show you the way.
So, please, don't cry! We will meet again someday!

As I write this poem, I can't help but shed a tear, not a day goes by that your brother and I don't talk about you in one way or another. We will always keep your memory alive, you will always live in our hearts. You was my best friend, my sister, I miss you more than anyone could ever imagine. I love you so very much. I am so glad to be married to your brother:) we call Dan often to see how he is doing.

I usually heard stories from your brother when he would be up there helping you get some things done around your place. Then you would laugh about how you tricked him into doing stuff for you and both of you would get a laugh out of that. You left too soon. There are some hurting hearts you left behind, I hope they heal. Rest in peace.

I will remember your phone calls over the years and it helped heal some things for me. Sorry you waited till I was in England to call and tell me that things were worse then you had told me or the kids.

And again, that's just one of the many things. My heart felt sad for you all and I am truly sorry I was unable to make it to the funeral. She will forever be in my heart and many prayers to you all.

Jim will be sorely missed at Emerson, he has been a pillar here for a long time. It will not be the same without his wisdom and antics. If he found a campground in heaven I'm sure he is in it and probably cooking a meal for everyone there. May god bless all of his family and friends and help them to deal with the tragedy of his sudden passing.

My Dad will always be in my heart. I remember going fishing and the pig roasts with my dad as a kid we would do in the summer and always thinking I have the best dad in the world and nothing can top this. Life is always good with you Dad at 10 yrs old. I'm 37 now and that feeling has never gone away. Dad I will miss are great deer hunting trips we would take every year and talk about family, life and politics. We would talk for hours into the night. I will also miss the time with you when my family would come back from Columbus and my kids could see there Grandpa. I would look at you with my kids and just reflect on things you told me on being a Dad on our trips. I'm really going to miss those trips with you. Dad I really want you to know a piece of my heart is gone with you to Heaven and I have kept a piece of yours with me. Dad I really miss you and I hope the memories I get to create with my kids will be as great as the ones I have created with you. I have great memories with my Dad and I think God I was able to experience that in my life. Dad I love you so much and I know your in great hands now.

My good friend Jim. So very much he loved his wife Jane and daughter Tessa. He would smile and laugh when talking about them with his many stories of good times. He cared about people...he loved his church...he loved The Lord. I have known Jim since my first day at Emerson 18 years ago...I have a deep respect for his wisdom and knowledge. He is one I called a true friend. His compassion for people was amazing and it showed in his consistent work ethic. Jim will be missed but more than that he will be remembered. May God's love comfort, may Jesus' strength hold you close and may the Holy Spirit encourage you in knowing Jim is in heaven . So sorry for everyone's loss of this brother in Christ.

So sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Jane & Tess, please accept my sympathy.
Jim will be sorely missed at our H.O.G. Chapter events and meetings. He always made everyone laugh and feel welcome anytime you would be around him. I had the chance to sit and visit with Jim at Gover H-D on the day of our Poker Run. As always, he threw that big hand out to me and shook mine and we sat and visited one last time. I'm gonna miss those visits and stories! A true gentleman and man of God in every sense. Rest in peace brother. See you there.

Jim was my Forman many years ago at Emerson. He was a very nice man. He made us laugh all the time. I remember most about him is when we were working we always knew where he was because you could here him whistling . He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Phyllis DeVelvis left a message on September 4, 2013:
Jim always was there whenever I needed him to do anything. He would take the time to come and see me even when he was busy. He sometimes had so much on his plate that it seems like he would never get out of Emerson/Copeland but he made time for his wife, Jane and his daughter, Tessa. Pictures of his family would be plastered on his wall no matter where his office was moved. I will miss his deep voice that would be taking to me and that laugh that he had. I also remember those days that he would pick me up on his buggy to take me from one end of the plant to the other whenever I needed to go. God has a great man who will be looking down on his family and friends and riding that cycle all over the sky above and have the wind blowing his LONG TAIL in the wind. To his family you have my sympathies and may GOD bless you with the memories that you have of this wonderful man.

I remember when we first hired Jim as a scroll machining supervisor at Emerson. My first impression of Jim was of a big man with a deep voice and a ready smile. My lasting impression is of a kind and considerate friend who loved his family and showed compassion and respect for others. He will certainly be missed by all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and his many friends at Emerson.

Dear Jane and Tessa: It is with great sadness that I learned of Jim's passing. When you buy a Harley, you get a lot more than a motorcycle, you get an entire new family, great friendships, and door into wonderful new experiences together.

My sincere condolences to the family of Jim. He and I were co-workers, he on the management team and I on the union team. Although we had several disagreements, the next day was back to normal. He was constantly whistling. I don't know if he was that happy or just letting employees know that he was in the area. Either way, he acted as though he was an extremely happy man. We had names for each other in greetings, he being "Saint James" and me Joe Joe Gunn. I appreciate the time that I have been acquainted with Jim. He will be missed by many.

Nicole, I have a couple great memories of your grandfather. I was the branch manager at Chase for a few years and helped him on several occasions. One time he wanted to be able to see his accounts online so I helped him get everything set up at the branch but he was having problems with it at home so I went over to his apartment. Wow what a great man he shared his life story with me in a quick hour or so. We also remember when you were getting married and he MADE the doctor give him new knees to walk you down the aisle ...what a wonderful story. Lastly one evening 2 winters ago I went to the grocery store and there was your grandfather on a very snowy and cold night I said Bob what are you doing out in this weather he looked at me and said "What are you doing out" touché :) Sorry I cant make it to the viewing to meet you but your grandfather was a great man and so I know you are a wonderful person also.... much love and prayers Ric Niekamp

Nicole I don't know if you remember us. You were young when you visited with your Grandma and Grandpa. I loved them very much. You probably remember me as working with your Grandma. She was my secretary in the intensive care unit. She was dedicated to her job and also me. She looked after me as a daughter. I knew your Mom and Dad, we golfed at one time and enjoyed very much. I remember your birth in 1973 what a wonderful time for your Grandma and Grandpa. They were both wonderful people and I loved our many visits. I am very saddened by your Granpa's death and I know you knew he loved you very much. Would very much like to hear from you sometime. God Bless you at this time Corinne

Nicole,

Thank you for calling me today. I am very sorry for your loss.
The last time Uncle Bob and I spoke was in mid-summer. Talking with him was always very enjoyable due to his keen sense of humor and interest in others. Though we hadn't been in touch since moving from Niagara Falls, uncle Bob called me several years ago to reconnect just before your wedding. He was so proud! He sent your beautiful wedding photos and photos of your dear parents, and also Minnard family photos which included my dad Ernest and his siblings and parents. Uncle Bob amazed me by his positive outlook and ability to live independently. May Jesus' love surround him and you, too! Together, we can rejoice in our faith in Jesus. Keeping you all in our prayers!

With the greatest respect and affection, I share this memory. I strated my career out of college as one of the first women working in the chemicals plant. I moved back to Lima from my "corporate" marketing job and became a front line supervisor. Teddy, as we call him, was one of the kindest and most respectful people I knew early in my career. He was a great role model, father, friend and gave me support and respect. When I saw Teddy after he retired, he was one of the people I was always happy to see. The world was better for him being in it. I will miss you.

I met Teddy when my younger sister married one of his sons. I saw him mostly at family gatherings where his cheerful attitude stood out. Teddy was always welcoming and kind to me. We shared an interest in history and I enjoyed several memorable conversations with him on this topic. But I most admired his devotion to his family. I think, first and foremost, Teddy was a husband and father. He will be greatly missed.
