    Glenn, Grace & Wanda,
    Was so sad when I heard this morning. The last few years I remember hearing about how Edgar would like to travel around the neighborhood on his UTV. It makes us all remember the good times, all of the aunts and uncles, and how times have gone by so fast. Bottle up all those good memories and hold them close and dear. Open that bottle up when you need a pick me up. Now Aunt Helen and Uncle Edgar come to be together again.
    God Bless,
    Lonnie & Lea Ann Peetz
