Hey Uncle Jerry, I will miss my God Father but I have to say, you lived a full life that seemed full of happiness. I really dug that you loved to dance, dance , dance and play the organ. I told my pup Pixie to give you a big fat lick on the face when she see's you there in heaven. She was my pup, black & white (tri color in face) with the big heart on her right side. You met her going to see Ralph in Milwaukee in 2010. I miss my girl dearly but she's with Marie now till I get there. Thanks Grandma for watching her. I love you all and miss you all. Love, Lance Mandernack

To the Ingrouille, and Steiner Families, After watching the tribute to your Father, Step Father, Grandfather and all, few words are necessary. My wife, and I were friends of the Steiner family, and my wife worked with Gerald, and found him to be a wonderful man. I only met him a few times, as we moved from the area. I know that even after a long and cherished life, the loss Is no less significant, but again, the tribute shows just how wonderful and full It was. God Bless all of you, and alway's keep him In your hearts.
