Cards of Thanks ] CARD OF THANKS The family of Gerhard Wittnebel would like to thank each of you who somehow had touched his life. He enjoyed the visits at the caf6s, at the Nassau, Marietta and Madison meal sites, Pastor's visits, to all the care people at the clinic, hospital and nursing home who made his-last home special. Thank you to the angel who was with him at the end. Thanks to the Pastor for a great service, the Legion for their gifts, the pallbearers, the organist, cards, memorials, flow- ers, ladies who served the meal, Zahrbock Funeral Home for their ser- vice.

To Roger and Carol Hynnek, for taking me over to Watertown the day before surgery because of "iffy" weather, and to Carol for staying with me there the following day-until I was out of danger, as well as running so many errands for me, to our son Dan for being there during surgery and the following three days, and for bringing me back to the Ortonville Hospital, to Father Bob, Pastor Marlene and David Tonn...I so appreciated you all. To Dr. Vener, Dr. Beyer, to all the nurses, Big Stone Therapy, Home Health all of you who prayed for my return to health. God is so good to us and I really feel I cannot thank you enough. To the many visi- tors, whether by phone or in person, to those who brought treats, flowers and magazines, groceries, sent cards and even to those who thought of me. To our daughter and son-in-law, Tamra and Randy, for bringing out groceries, cleaning my house, run- ning more errands, thanks so much. You are people of God and it is only until we cannot do for ourselves that we realize how much we truly appre- ciate one another and how blessed we are to have you as friends, neighbors or relatives. God bless you all! 4-1 Joan Jurgens Firestone CARD OF THANKS First of all, I must thank my chil- dren for the 75th birthday party. It took a lot of planning.
