Being part of this amazing family has been a real highlight in both Carrie’s and my life , Ive been included in Michaels wedding as a groomsman where only the 4 brothers were as well . On many occasions had the pleasure of sitting down one on one with Rudy and talking about how to take care of my mother that was going through her own issues, and once being scalded by him when i was in my late 40’s for drinking a beer while driving… Rudy and Inga had that fairy tale kind of love that is what movie’s are made of…You will be missed by many … You and Inga did a wonderful job in raising the boys as they are all solid men. GODSPEED OPA….

I remember him as an awesome father figure. Not only to his sons , but also there friends. He’d just be getting home from work and take the time to interact with all of us. I’m so happy that he was a part of my life!
