Janet, Maribeth, Dave, Cindy and Sandy - We just saw the news of your dad's passing in the paper today, so unfortunately we missed the funeral. We are all very sorry for the loss of your dad. So many memories of when we were young and our families would get together at each other's houses. My mom said she just talked to him in July shortly after Damiansville picnic and he sounded great then. He will be missed!

Please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of your Dad. I remember all the fish fries and euchre games that he enjoyed and especially all the polkas that he danced! He always said that he danced his last polka at my sister's 50th wedding anniversary. Treasure all those good memories! May he rest and dance now in peace.

To the family of David Krupp: Our sympathy for the loss of your father and grandfather. My mother and I had dinner with David recently at Cedar Trails and I enjoyed the visit with him there. He used to be a neighbor of my mother's just down the road.

To my Uncle David and Aunt Sally’s children I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle David was a great uncle. He was my second baseball coach, he got me summer jobs at Locke when I was going to college, and he was always fun to be with. He was special.
