  33. Dear Mr. and Mrs. Loehmann, Kristine & Kurt, You are in my thoughts and prayers. I fondly regard the great memories with you in your Westville home. I appreciate so much the friendship you provided and all you did for my brother and me in our childhood. Some fond memories of John include him cruising our block on his Big Wheel with my late brother, Jimmy. They used to go as fast as they could down our slightly pitched driveway and spin out at the bottom of it. I used to laugh so much when I’d see Mrs. Hawley, a resident of our former neighborhood, vigilantly ensuring that John and Jimmy were not playing with a hard ball or smacking golf balls in ‘The Field’. They always had a plan on how they’d outsmart her. John and Jimmy played for hours in their early elementary years and would pretend that they were television series characters such as: Starsky & Hutch, the Duke Boys (Dukes of Hazard County) or Ponch & John (CHIPS series). I got a kick of how they pretended that the Loehmann’s living room couch was the ‘General Lee’, the vehicle of the Duke boys in the Dukes of Hazard County television series, as they would run into the living room and jump onto the couch in a position as though they were sliding into first base. I can recall being down at the beach with your family and thinking that John was so cool because he learned to operate the Boston Whaler motor boat at a young age. I hope that all the good memories you had with John help you through this difficult time. Love, Ellen White Goslicki

  34. jack and Leslie, Sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Mac & Maureen McCarthy

  35. Mr. and Mrs. Loehmann, Family and Friends, Even though Bubba was going to some tough times I would see him with a smile and a good sense of humor. Although I didn’t really know him well I know he was a good man and a loving father. With fond memories and my deepest sympathy. Debbie Cooley Dunten Law Firm

  36. Leslie and Jack: I am so very sorry to have learned of your loss. Your love for each other will give you the strength to endure. May he rest in peace.

  37. I’m sorry for John leaving this world so early. John I never got the chance to see again but someday I will brother.

  38. John B. Loehmann was my uncle. An uncle that lived halfway across the county, and an uncle whom I rarely communicated with. Even so, there is a feeling you recieve when a family member leaves this world, especially without saying goodbye. It is a torturous, heartwrenching feeling that makes your heart plummet to a depth far beyond your imagination. It is I feeling I did not feel at first, for I was too young to understand what had happened that caused my mother, Kristine, to weep with such agony. But now, I know. As I said earlier, I did not know my Uncle Bubba well, but that does not mean I didn’t want to. I would’ve loved to hear about his weird fetishes or even his favorite color, and someday I believe I will. But for now, I will just have to make do not knowing. I did not say it was going to be easy, for you have no idea how many times I cry myself to sleep wondering about what could’ve been. My parents do not know this for I believe it is crucial to stay strong for my mother. I do not think they know I am even constructing this message right now. As I conclude my message in tears, I would like to thank all of those who granted their greatest condolences to my family. It means the world to us. I know 4 years is a long time to put off my condolence, but I have finally learned how to express my feeling about this tragedy. I love you Uncle Bubba, and always will. I hope I get to explore your weird fetishes with you someday. With Love, Kiley Sullivan
