    So Sorry for your loss. You will be missed by all who knew you. We had some really great times growing up together whenever our families got together, especially at grandma’s and grandpa’s. I wish your family the best. I enjoyed my trips to your house when all of you boys were still at home. You and the rest of the family will hold a special place in my heart. Your cousin Susan (Lucas) Vogt
