Condolence from Caroline Krueger on January 13th, 2015 7:38 am

Richard and I send our prayers and love to the family of “Boots,” whom we loved dearly. Dick was Richard’s father’s brother, and we were so very happy to welcome “Boots” into our family when she married him. Although we did not get to see her often, we enjoyed our telephone chats and visits when we did see her. We wish we could be at her visitation and her
memorial service. Richard and Caroline Krueger
Rock Hill, SC

It was my privilege and pleasure to come to know Juanita Krueger, and to have brief visits to deliver lunch to her almost every Monday since 2011. Her sunny disposition always brightened my day. May the Lord bless Juanita and welcome her to His side.
