Our thoughts are with all of you at this time. I'm sure there is one great Schnells' party in heaven right now.

Uncle Harvey was a really awesome guy that had a great sense of humor. Growing up, he treated my brother and I like one of his own kids. I remember that he had several nick names and it confused me as a kid and I never was real sure what his real name was (Schimmel, Whitey, etc.). I’m hoping the old Polka song is not true and that there is beer in Heaven because if there is I know Uncle Harvey is having a beer right now with his old buddy, my dad. My prayers and thoughts are with the entire family, especially my Aunt Lori.
