The death of my dear father-in-law was recorded in the Wausau Daily Herald on Mon, Mar 28, 2005. We were requested to return home on Friday and had planned to leave on Monday, but his death came suddenly on Sunday. None of us knew he was going to die so quickly. He had been diagnosed with cancer in 2000. So, we had five years with him that we weren't suppose to have. (Crystal Wendt)
