    With heavy hearts we say goodbye to our dear Uncle John. I’ll always have wonderful memories from my childhood going to Grandma & Grandpa Kurer’s house for family get togethers. All our aunts, uncles and our many cousins were there eating duck dinners. He would make us laugh with his witty personality. I will always have a special place in my heart for him. Peace.😞💔

    As we say goodbye to our loved one, we need to remember, life is sooo short and when he passes over to the other side to meet our Savior he just needs to turn around because we’re right behind him. May you find peace in the coming days knowing he’s in a better place. We love you, Kenny & Darleen

    I am sorry to hear of Johns passing. When he would see me it was always hey Bunner. When I was little I was always shy and would bluss when he said it. I know we will all meet agin one day and hope he greets me with hey Bunner. Our sympathies to the whole family.
