Condolence & Memory Journal

The most beautiful man I knew! Missed you last trip Uncle Bob :(.

I'm not sure if any of you will remember me. I am John Sauter's daughter from Florida. I loved coming to Michigan every Summer as a child and especially remember my Aunt Alice and Uncle Bob and whatever children came with them to visit while we were there. Even though they were not really my Aunt and Uncle, they were to me and I remember those visits fondly. My Aunt Alice and Cousin Monica have kept me informed of your parents over the years and just wanted to let you know how sorry I am at their passing. They were truly wonderful people and will be missed. My prayers are with you all.

Mr. Carey always had time for all of us kids and his words of wisdom and encouragement continue to have a lasting impact on me. He showed us all how to work hard, be a parent and love everyone. I've truly been blessed for knowing Mr. Carey and my prayers go out to a family that I love more than words can ever express. Stay strong as God will show us the way.
