My heart goes out to the entire Kaleugher family at this time. I have known you all for more years than I care to admit, and have seen Adam grow up. He was a good man, and a special person.

Farewell to Dad Hughes, one of the finest characters I ever knew; so very wise, patient, kind and gentle; and always a pure joy to listen to and spend time with. I will miss Dad dearly, until we meet again.

Dear Neidlinger family, I was just thinking of your Mom a few days ago! So many memories, I don't know where to start. Along with my Mom and Gussie, she was 1/3 of Fr. Sangl's original Charlie's Angels! I'm sure the
(real)Angels welcomed her with wonderful song! Prayers of strength for the entire family. I will miss her laugh (and your Dad's wise cracks) and wish you peace and comfort.

So sorry to hear about Mrs. Neidlinger's passing. I had the privileged of having her as a piano teacher and also helping he in the Blackhawk library. She was a kind, wonderful, and encouraging woman and she will be missed! I was sad to hear of her passing.

I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Suzanne's passing. She was such a kind, loving person. Even tho we weren't in touch as much in the passing years, she was in our family memories, mostly in the stories I've told of "back in the days" at Granny Droz's ; with Chuckie and Karen . Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. Love to your family. Along with thoughts and prayers. ( I only read of her passing last night. Sorry I missed her funeral. I missed Chuckie's Memorial also. So much sorrow your family has endured. ) Please stay in touch. I will let my Brothers know of her passing; my Sister Cardell passed a year ago.)
