Harvey, Doris, and family, Very sorry about Harvey Sr's passing. It sounds like he enjoyed life to the fullest. And I know his son, Harvey Jr, to be one of the most fiercest gentleman competitors alive. You're all in my prayers for comfort. God Bless. Rusty Rieke

Any scene with Mike Jeffries at the center (and could there be a scene including him not at the center?) is beautiful. So proud of Helias to continue paying homage to Mike. God Bless. Rusty Rieke

Very sorry. All Kolbs are in our prayers. Carmen could tiptoe (yes) into a room, sit down in a corner, and the room would jump alive with Carmen suddenly the center of all the fun. Carmen was so real she could never hide her unique wit, charm, and charisma. Carmen was instant party time. Heaven is today a much happpier party place. Much love, Rusty Rieke

A group of colonialists farmers led by George Washington had just defeated the world's mightiest military (British), so the 2d amendment (passed in 1791) sought to protect us from any future tyrannical government. It simply states: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. That’s it. It has totally outlived its usefulness and meaning. Could these same NRA people defend themselves against the nuclear bombs in today's world? Do you hunt with pistols or automatic assault weapons? I think not. Prostitution of the 2d amendment wording should end. Maybe pistol packers’ incarceration for local prostitution statues (prostitution of 2d amendment intent) are in order. Where are the pro-life people on this? Here’s one, and I'm incoherent with sadness. Can't we all just get along??

Kudos to Gov Nixon. Remember the history of the second amendment. A group of colonialists farmers led by George Washington had just defeated the world's mightiest military (British), so the 2d amendment (passed in 1791) sought to protect us from any future tyrannical government. It simply states: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”. That’s it. It has totally outlived its usefulness and meaning. Could these same NRA people defend themselves against the nuclear bombs in today's world? Do you hunt with pistols or automatic assault weapons? I think not. Prostitution of the 2d amendment wording should end. Maybe pistol packers’ incarceration for local prostitution statues (prostitution of 2d amendment intent) are in order.

We wish God's Blessing to all the Ortmeyers, and families extended. I barely met Mr Ortmeyer, but have known him from afar as a blessed soul of a great man. Faithful, hardworking, and always loving. God certainly blessed him with a wonderful family, and a "good run". Our condolences and prayers continue for all of us who will be missing him greatly.

I was a classmate of Bob's decades ago at I.C. He was a wonderful young man, and always a bright spark in our classroom. I'm very sorry to hear of his death, and very sorry for all his family who will surely miss him. I'm praying for you all, while the Bob I knew is most assuredly awaiting us all in heaven. Otto Rieke
