I'm sorry to hear of Emils passing

I hadn't seen him in a long time but the posting immediately took me back to my pre grade school days when I'd walk with my mother from Prarie ave in Mundelien up to the old downtown section and Yope's grocery store.

I'd stop bathe Radke house on Hawley and play with Emil.  We had a lot of fun.


I will remember him
