"I am so sorry about Gus but know he is in a great place - next to Tom. I did not know about Gus's passing until just recently so am sorry about the late response.
I have such great memories growing up with all of the Heimann family on those sunny, warm days on the farm. I can still see us eating in the kitchen there. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
Judy (Heimann) Charlson Lincoln, NE"
"Can't think of growing up on the farm that you aren't part of the memories, Gus. I will keep you, Tom and your family in my prayers. Rest in peace."
"As a former staff member of the Area Agency on Aging, I had the great pleasure and privilege of working with Gus for many years when he served on the Board of Directors. He was a kind, gentle, honest man who always had a smile. Blessings to his family. I know he will be greatly missed."
