    Dear Lenneman family,
    It is my hope that the memories will sustain and strengthen you and bring you many smiles as you recall and tell the stories.

    It has been my privilege and blessing to catch glimpses into your exceptional family by way of Ann Bistodeau (we work together). Your husband and father created and nurtured a strong legacy.

    We say farewell with full assurance and wonderous hope of that day when we are indeed reunited with our loved ones and tears are wiped away.

    Peace and Comfort,
