My deepest sympathy and condolences for all of Juergen's family and friends. He was one of the reps I had worked with years ago when he was working for 7-up when I managed a Stop-n-Shop. I will remember fondly his honesty, drive, and infectious sense of humor. I will keep you all in my prayers

Unc, we were lucky to have you! He was dealt a lousy hand and never complained while fighting until the end! Aunt Therese, Cristina, and Andrea, he loved you more than anything else! Praise God for such beautiful memories of him until we are reunited again!

Therese, Cristina and Andrea, Juergen was a proud husband and father,he loved his family...all of us. Smuckers would not be successful if not for Cristina, Andrea will be an episode on Law and Order, and Theresee was always a great girl ! That was Juergen. I will miss his phone calls that always began withHello Mutti Hofer, how is my 3rd favorite sisters-in-law? This is a sad time, but with our faith we know that he is at peace and that one day our paths will cross again.Thinking of you, with love....and remembering the guy whose glass was always half full

Dear Theresa, I know words cannot convey the loss that you feel nor the sadness that I feel for you and your family during this difficult time. I would deliver my condolences in person if I were not out of town. Be strong and know that there are people out there thinking and praying for you and your family to keep you strong.
