Mr. Hagemeyer had faith in me before I had faith in me. He helped me apply my faith to my efforts and was tough on me when I needed it and encouraged me when I needed it. He has been a part of my foundational roots. I pray that his family will know that I’m very thankful that God put him in my path. When we are young we have people we look up to and respect. He is one of those people. Know you haven’t lost anything for the memories are treasures that Will live with us forever. I know your heart may ache but it is well with his soul. He is in the presence of pure love. If you cry remember that we have hope that we will see him again. May God the giver of all good things give you all peace during this hour of bereavement. Thank you for sharing him with me. I the better for knowing him.
