We are sorry to hear of the passing of your Father Dennis. Prayers go out to the Reiger family. They always had a warm smile to greet you with, and befriended my Mom while she was in the nursing home. May God bless each and everyone of you

Our thoughts are with the Reiger families. We are so sorry that our Uncle Fritz is gone. He was a kind and gentle man. During the past few years we stopped each fall to see Him and Ruth during our annual Wisconsin trip. We will miss him.
