  1. My sincere sympathies to the Rademacher family. I’m so very sorry for your loss. The difficult time of losing someone we love leads to many questions in our minds, and leaves a hole in our hearts. May God’s Word bring you hope and strength to endure. John 5:28,29 speaks of a resurrection hope for the future. What that can mean for you is a real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones. It is my hope that you find comfort now and in the days ahead. My sincere thoughts and condolences.

  2. Dear Glenda, Robin and Keaton. Just this past August Kirk, Lil D and I had dinner at your mom and dad’s house. While Glenda was in the kitchen preparing yet another delicious meal, the rest of us were sitting on the front porch. I asked your dad how old he was. He had this to say. “I’m 73 yrs.old and you know what? I have done everything I could ever have wanted to do. I have traveled the world, have all the toys any man could want, have hunted and fished all over, have a wonderful family and friends and had a job that I enjoyed. And if I died tomorrow I’d die a happy man.” That you did my friend. Hugs in heaven. Michele.
