No better quote sums it up for me better than this: All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. ~Abraham Lincoln She was the person who set my dreams free with simple encouragement. I could never thank her enough. It is that security of support I pray I can replace. Who knew losing a Mom could hurt so badly . . . and now understand it so clearly? I will miss you so much more than I imagined . . .

So saddened to hear of your loss. So many happy memories when you use to live across the street from us. My thoughts are with you at this time.

Lynn, Bill, and the Schoepski Family, You may not remember me, my family and I are neighbors to your Uncle Jake, Jean, and family. I met you both when I worked for Jake in the mid to late 1960’s. I have fond memories of stopping at the restaurant for lunch. Jake and I would come in the back door to the kitchen, sit and talk with your Dad while he made us a sandwich or special for the day. Your Mom would make sure that we didn’t leave without one of her great desserts. Your parents always made me feel welcome and we never left hungry. My wife Penny and I are sincerely sorry for your loss and we send our condolences. Your Mother will be remembered and missed by everyone that knew her. Sincerely, Penny & Chuck

Dear Lynn, My sincerest condolescences on your mom's passing! She will forever be with you in spirit, love and her guiding hand. It is difficult, to say the least, as I lost my mom Dec. 8, 2013 and I "talk" with her every day, just to keep her with me. Prayers are with you as well with the whole family. With Love and Peace in your heart, Sandi

Bill, Lynn, Jim & Jay and families so sorry to get the news about Aunt Pauline. Lots of memories from the restaurant and the fairgrounds and the pool at Belvidere Park. They were special days for Jake's family and you got to be right down the street from all the action everyday. Swimming lessons were a summertime challenge for some of us while other seemed to be part fish. I still can't drive into the park without looking for the building next to the pool that had blue raspberry & root beer popsicles and the swinging bridge. My daughter Ashley & I were up a couple of years ago and Grandpa Jake took Ashley across the famous bridge. I have a picture that's sits on my desk to spark the memory of that day. Dad also took us to a certain bench along the river that displays our shared name because you or maybe your mom thought it was important that she and other's could enjoy a moment of quiet in Uncle Bob's bench. Your parents were both wonderful people that taught me about a good work ethic at the restaurant, they led by example. Wish I could have joined you all earlier in the week. My thoughts & Prayers are with you . Vickie Schoepski Miller, Sikeston, Mo
