So sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Mueller. He was always working in his garage or yard.- He had the neatest Ferris wheel of stuffed animals as his Christmas decoration that we enjoyed as we entered our subdivision. He will be missed. Sorry we missed his funeral- Pia & Steve Hacker & family

Saddened to hear of the loss of your father, John. I have not had the privilege of knowing him for a lifetime as yourself, or befriending him as long as many others have. My few times with him are dear to my heart. And I will always respect my time spent with him.

Dear Laurie and family, We are shocked and saddened to hear of Larry's passing yesterday. He was a sweetie, and I considered it an honor to be able to assist him when I could. The dining table has lost a treasure. He will be missed, but God has reclaimed one of His own Our deepest sympathy to you all on this loss.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to your family. Mr. Mueller will be greatly missed in the neighborhood. He was quite a man. We all loved the Christmas decor (in years past), his awesome garden (which he shared with us from time to time). We will miss looking out on spring mornings and seeing him working around the yard. All and all a great person to be around. RIP

Dear Mueller family, Please accept my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and I'd like to share where I found comfort and hope at such a time as this when I lost my entire family to this enemy death. I found this in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 there we're told we'll see our love ones again at the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and we're also told at ICorinthians15:54 that this enemy death will be gone forever, These scriptures and jw,org help me cope with my loss and get through each day because now I know I'll see my love ones again and so can you. I wanted to share this with you now when comfort and hope is needed hoping that this will help you also for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you'll feel free to let me know if this helped in some way. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
