A light is from our household gone, A voice we loved is stilled. A place is vacant in our home Which never can be filled. We have to mourn the loss of one We did our best to save. Beloved on earth, regretted still, Remembered in the grave. 'Twas hard to part with one so dear, We little thought the time was near Farewell, dear one, your life is past, Our love for you till the end will last.

  1. Even though we didn’t share the same blood, I still feel like a piece of my heart is now gone. Our time with you was a gift. Knowing you was life changing. Thank you for loving me and my daughter like we were your own. I will make sure Katja will remember you and how much you loved her. I will miss you for the rest of my life. I love you forever my sweet Opa.

  2. A special man has made his way,
    into our lives and hearts he’ll stay.
    A grand journey filled with family and friends,
    for our love for him shall never end.
    Of kind heart and strong will,
    is how we remember him best,
    generous and honest above the rest.
    Treasuring the moments to hear his fondest memories,
    he now is at rest, heart and soul is at peace.
    Lord, we thank you for honoring us with such a great man,
    for today we say good-bye, but until our paths meet again.

    Grandpa Jim, Oh how I love you. You were there for me always. Your love was felt and understood, you always had a smile for me, a kind word, a silly joke, a back scratch, to a game of chess, above all a big hug anytime! All my love to the best Grandpa ever! Missing you deeply, Michelle

  3. Grandpa, my memories of Christmas and Easter and Fishing at Rock Creek will never fade. It was such a blessing to spend the last 6 years with you, learning your stories ….. you life, things that I had not heard growing up, or at least did not remember. I will keep them in my heart always. I thank God that Christa came in to my life. I know now it was not only to be an important part of my life, but also to have cared, loved, healed and watched over you. You and I know what an Angel she is.

    With all my love, rest in peace, Bill
