Message: Tim & Judy, Tony, Todd Sorry I missed Huntz's funeral didn't think any of you needed the flue I have. With every thing else you are going through. I was there in spirit and prayer for all of you. My heart aches with all of you. I can't say I know how you are feeling,. just that I've been there and it hurts. I would stop at The Lutheran Home to visit Huntz not sure he always remembered who I was. When I told him I was a high school friend of Tony & Tim's & I knew Todd his eyes would brighten and a smile would come to his face. Huntz was so proud of his boys! Huntz has reached his ultimate goal in life, to be in heaven with God and the love of his life your wonderful Mom. He will be missed, keep his good memories alive. I said a prayer for all of you today that God will bring you the Comfort & Peace you deserve. Which will come to all of you at different times.
