Sorry for your loss Francis. I have so many good memories from the days of The Chalet. And I wish just once more, I could hear her call me Cho-sef. Sincere condolences to you & your children.

Anna was a very special person to us. We always looked forward to her visits as they were always filled with the wit, charm, and kindness that ONLY Anna could have. Anna touched the lives of many--including ours. We will miss her smile, her sweet face, her conversation, and her laughter. We are so very honored that we were part of her life. Heaven has surely gained an angel. She will be missed here on earth. Our deepest condolences. Ashley L. Bauer

Eric and family, I'm so sorry to here of your Mothers passing. I had known your Mother from the Chalet many years ago. May she rest in peace.

Eisbrenner Family

Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Anneliese. May words of encouragement uplift your spirit at this difficult time. We didn’t know Anneliese but from all the comments we have read she was truly loved. She touched many lives and will be thought of often. In the hard days to come may the many wonderful memories of her life give you comfort. Something we have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28 “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out “. May God Jehovah comfort you during this sad time in your life.
