Bon Voyage, Mr. Draeger. May you rest in peace and find everlasting happiness with your beloved Kay. You won't be forgotten -- impossible!

Thinking of you all, Patti, Rick and Lisa, at this time. I'm very sorry for your loss. I will always smile when I think of your dad. There is so much to remember -- especially on the boats with our parents. Such fond memories!!!

Love, Liz

Rest in peace Mr. Draeger! Over the weekend, I thought about memories of you and the family during the '70s ... Michigan .... boating and more. Life goes by fast and it is all so very short. Sympathies to Patti, Rick and Lisa!
