“Tomorrow’s Another Day” – Those were the words my Dad would say when things were difficult for one of us – it was his way of saying it would be okay and we could get through it – he is right tomorrow is another day but it will never be the same without him. He was no saint and he had faults but he was the best Husband,Dad,Grandpa,and Great Grandpa anyone could ever want and a very special person. My Mom and my brothers and sister will get through it because we are his family and he taught us well through his example of strength and courage. His grandchildren each have a special memory of him as does most that knew him. If we had 100 years with him it would not be enough but we are blessed and thankful for the time we did have.
My condolences to the Oehler family. I work with Sherry and I have followed Mr. Oehler’s illness with her. My only prayer is that the fond memories of him you share can bring you all peace. God bless you all.
FROM A RETIRED MARINE YOU HAVE OUR FAMILIES PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS WITH YOU. I AM SURE THERE IS ONE MORE MARINE JOINING THE GUARDS AT THE GATES OF HEAVEN.
GOD BLESS YOU
