Condolence & Memory Journal

My Sympathy to all of the family in your loss of both Marie and Milton. As growing up next door to your family and spending many babysitting hours for your folks, I got to know your family very well. I have very fond memories of you all.

My sincere sympathy to all your family on the passing of your mother. I have many fond memories growing up as a neighbor of the Groskreutz family and of your Mom. She was always kind and welcoming whenever I was at your house from the time I was a little kid on. I learned many things from her when she was a 4-H leader - I still remember when she taught a lesson on how to sew on buttons correctly. My condolences.
