    Please accept our condolences – we also will miss Howard , as we have missed Sue, remembering the years that both couples lived in Missouri, being about 400 miles from our families – so we became “family” in a way for each other. Nancy and Sue shared memories of their student years at Milwaukee Lutheran High School, while Howard and Roger discovered a shared common interest in all things mechanical, when Howard and Sue moved to O’Fallon where we were already living in the St. Louis area. Both families began to grow and share our joys with the births of Scott and Heidi and Christine and Cherie. We had hoped to attend Howard’s memorial service – although Nancy is still recovering from recent knee-replacement surgery, we were hopeful her recovery would be far enough along to permit driving down from Milwaukee for the service. Unfortunately, it has gone slower than expected and is still quite painful, so that therapy is ongoing and Nancy is still not up to traveling. We do hope in the near future, once Nancy is better, to be able to make the drive down to pay our respects at graveside and hopefully can maybe visit briefly with Scott and Heidi and family/s to share more memories of Howard and Sue – and we do look forward to all seeing each other again up in Heaven! We miss you both, Howard and Sue – but we’ll see you again!!
