Written on June 23, 2013 for my weekly column in the local paper
To all my readers,
Many of you know that we lost my brother, Mike Kramer, in a helicopter accident this past week. We are all working through the unexpected loss. Instead of writing an article for the paper this week, I’m helping my family compile “Mike Stories” for his eulogy. We all have great memories of Mike as a kid, a young man, and we are so proud of the man he became as a husband and father. I could fill a full newspaper with great stories, and still it wouldn’t be enough.
Through all of this I’m once again reminded that we live in a great community. Thank you for the outpouring of kindness and support that you shared with my family: visits, kind words and hugs while running errands, gifts of food, and so much more. I know that Mike felt blessed to have his family in the community of St. Charles.
