Dear Helen, I'm holding you in my thoughts and prayers as you face the loss of your beloved Vic. I saw what wonderful care that you gave him when I was home with my Mother, Mary Bahler. I'll never forget what wonderful times we had during Christmas, when you were still living on the farm, and you two made peanut brittle, and shared it with us. Sending my Love and God's continued Blessings, Janice

Well done thou good and faithful servant are not idle words. I regret not being able to share this time with you. Know that my spirit and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of Vic, and yet we rejoice that he is resting in the arms of Jesus. In His love - Karen Keplinger Kaufman

Aunt Helen and family, Just want to express my sympathy and love to you at this time. Uncle Vic was such an example of God's love to me, his entire life. I know he prayed for me, as he told me so. I will miss coming to visit him when I come to Ohio, but I rejoice knowing his suffering on earth is over and he is celebrating in Heaven! Please know you are in my prayers. Love you all! Rhonda
