Louie and Herb Ahlers taken in November, 2006
I found these thank you notes from Louis while working on my archives!
I love to capture his handwriting. He wrote, "You are in my thoughts every day and still pray for your mom every day. Everybody loved her. I'm getting to be an old man, but people still say I look pretty good. "
I wrote him a letter after his sister and my sister in law, Betty Wessels passed away. He wrote "I got to see her in the casket and gave her the last kiss. She looked like she was asleep. and I couldn't help to hear her say, 'thank you so much and I love you so much my brig brother.'
"Everyone in the parish had their picture taken about three months ago. I'm sending you one which came out pretty well."
I hope people will always treasure the written word and I hope my handwriting and eyesight remains good so I can send cards and letters to people after I really retire.
Louis Schmidt in on God's Guest List because he treasures the memory of my mom and knows how to make me and others feel special.
