On behalf of my recently departed husband, Walt Schmakel, my family and I would like to thank those who were supportive of us during a most difficult time. My appreciation goes out to family members, friends, clergy, the Fire Department, paramedics, Ridgeview Hospital and the wonderful nurses and doctors there, and everyone who has offered such kindness, food, flowers, support and messages of sympathy. Your many acts of kindness and sympathy continue to be a great comfort to us in our time of sorrow. I sincerely thank you all and am forever grateful.
Dee Schmakel and family
