It\'s been a long time since we\'ve seen each other and now it\'s too late here on earth.
We\'ll have to get together when I make it to heaven so we can talk about cows, feed and how to make money farming.
You raised a good bunch of boys along with the help of your wife.
Matt and Paul learned well from you.
It was a pleasure to serve you when I stopped at your farm.
You were easy to talk with and so down to earth.
Lead on, my Friend!
I\'ll try to catch up to you a little later!
"Matt, our deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your Dad.
Paul & Terri"
"My prayers and sympathy to the Eggert Family. "
"My sincere condolences to the family, especially Aunt Deannie. May you find comfort in great memories. "
