Having the privilege to have known as legend is certainly something one may not recognize initially. Mr Ruempler readily fit this billing. I will miss all that he was.

Jill and Jennifer, I was so so sorry to learn of your dad's passing. The closeness of your family has always been a marvel that many have envied. The morning phone calls were just the smallest evidence of how much he loved and cared for you. No wonder you have grown into such good-hearts.
