    Jim and I and my father Leonard Nothdurft wish to offer our condolences. The loss of a loved parent leaves an empty place that cannot be easily or ever truly filled. Be assured that he is resting with Jesus and in perfect health. I’m so sorry that I will not be able to attend either the visitation or the funeral, but I will be thinking of you. Carolyn Andrews

  2. From all of us at Midwest Grain and Barge we are very sorry to hear this. Prayers for the family.
