Condolence from Paul Kraft on February 7th, 2016 1:07 pm

My condolence to Emil’s family. I knew Emil years ago as our Charlie Chip man and then as a friend who mentored me on raising rabbits. He’s was a wonderful person and will be missed by all.
Oddly I ran into Emil a few weeks ago at CVS and we reminised about old times. Little did I know that it was a final goodbye.

RIP Emil – you deserve it.
