Visitation will be held from 10 am until the time of Mass. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to www.cleanwisconsin.org to protect Wisconsin's clean air and clean water and advocate for clean energy.

Though his smile is gone forever, and his hand we cannot touch, still we have so many memories of the one we love so much. His memory is our keepsake, with which we will never part; God has him in His keeping, and we have him in our hearts.
