    My deepest sympathy to the Schmeichel family on the occasion of Emil’s death. Thank you for the trust that you have placed in me in inviting me to preside over the service of worship which will seek to give God thanks for his life. May all that we say and do bring you comfort and hope.

    Dear Schmeichel family; we are so very sorry for your loss. I will greatly miss my dear friend Emil. He was like a Grandfather to me and the best neighbor anyone could ever ask for! I will miss feeding and watching our backyard birds, squirrels, and chipmunks together. Although our hearts are heavy with sadness because we will miss him, we celebrate his well accomplished life and now he can dance again with his lovely Lillian in heaven. God Bless and hugs to you.
