elevated z8To0 The game has now ended,
The whistle has blown,
I’m leaving the field
But I don’t leave alone.
My teammates surround me,
My loved ones and friends
With more still to greet me
When I reach journey’s end.
Now forever at peace,
With my number retired
I will watch from Above,
Other games I’ve inspired.
I loved the poem you have concluded with ❤️
So sorry for your loss , sending you all love.

Ron and my very deepest of condolences. Heinz was truly like a brother to us. May he be forever in peace until we are together again.
Heinz, always was as if my true friend. I so enjoyed our weekly visit and when we talked about those interesting things of his past. Well miss him so.
2 great memories of Uncle Heinz for me were:
He had a Volkswagen and would take all of us for drives. Kuni and I would be sitting in the little cubby at the back.
He was always filming all of us when we were together and now I have film of when we were young and all the goofy things we did.
He loved life and loved his family.
I am so sorry that you all have to go through this but I know you have many many wonderful memories. God Bless
