After our wedding, we left for Wisconsin for a few days for Grandpa Elmer (Luepke)’s funeral. He passed away 4 days before our wedding. Mike looked up to him so much, and it was one of his greatest wishes to have Grandpa at our wedding. We were filled with sadness, but also great joy knowing that he was up in Heaven celebrating with a host of angels! Our reception was a blast, but we can only imagine how much better THAT party must’ve been!
Talk about a man who left a legacy– from his faith, to his story-telling, to his song-singing and his hard-working hands and sensitive spirit, Grandpa Elmer will always have a special place in our hearts.
