Dear Jane and family - I worked with Emil for many years both at the old Printcraft plant up on Maple Street and the new plant in Scott Twp. Thru the years Emil was always willing to go the extra mile to get something out in a rush and step up to help when a crisis occurred. I could always depend on him to get me what I needed. I always appreciated him for that. On a lighter side I will always remember the fact that if anyone had any food left just give it to Emil - it never went to waste!

My deepest condolences to you and your family at this time.

Dear Jane and Family,
I have no words to express to you my sadness,of the loss of Emil.
The world is a lesser place without him.
But we Know he is with God and the angels.
And even heaven is improved by his presence,there.
I know you,too,are sure of this. Yet this
knowledge can't diminish his loss and your grief.

With abiding respect and affection.
