Our Sincere Condolences
Bill & Elizabeth,
I’m so sorry to hear about your Dad. My condolences to you and your families.
Elizabeth and Bill, I’m so very sorry to hear of your loss, although I know it’s comforting to know he is now at peace. So many memories, from what seemed like a whole other life, for us all. Our Dad’s were truly a different breed, who worked hard to provide for their families, when farming was a different endeavor, than it is today. To think of the 4-row planters, cultivators and corn heads along with the combines and tractors, without cabs. They were at one with the soil, daily. May he “Rest In Peace!”
We met your dad through the Seekers Sunday School Class at Plattewoods Methodist Church and know what a great man he was. As it turned out he played piano for my high school English teacher, Miss Wall, when they were growing up on neighboring farms. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and all your family. Hope time will heal your current sadness with more pleasant memories from the past.
Bev & Lenny Poppenhagen
Elisabeth and Bill, your father and mother were two of the first people we met when we landed in Hardin so long ago. They were special to our family. Many years later when we moved to the city, who appeared at the door to move Sharon”s baby grand piano? Alfred! Many Sundays were spent with him at Platte Woods UMC. May our old friend RIP. Blessings to your family…
