Uncle Emil, you were my special uncle, always with a joke and a laugh and lots of love. I'm so glad you are now entertaining my dad and his brothers and sisters, my sister Dianne and John around a heavenly picnic table at a wonderful reunion! Love and miss you always!

Sending so many prayers and our love to Tina and the entire family. We loved Emil so much as well as Tina as family. It was so hard moving to Indiana as we left behind our family, your mom and dad! Please know we are sending hugs, memories and love!

David, Crystal and family. Emil was an amazing man, husband, father and beloved grandfather. Remembering his smile and laugh and enthusiasm for life are so easy. Prayers for you and your family through this time. We know Emil is at his final home and at peace with our heavenly Father telling jokes and waiting for us to come on home. Praying for peace during this time. Love you all, may God bless you and keep you safe.

Fun, funny, fun loving. Always smiling. Always ready with a joke. That being said, for me, he always had time to talk seriously if I asked. And we did. He did something very special for me years ago that I will never forget. I don't think he realized how much it meant. Thank you uncle Emil. I will miss you but the Lord has welcomed you home.
