  1. We’ve known Wilfred since we bought our lot on Weilers Way in 1993. He enjoyed visiting with all of the neighbors and even tho he didn’t live out here, we definitely felt like he was part of our neighborhood. He had a little garden on the vacant lot by the lake and he would always share his produce…whether we were home or not. If we found acorn squash in our newspaper box, we knew Wilfred had been here! Our sympathies to your family.

  2. Never met Mr. Heinen, but because I know Diann I’m certain he was a really good guy. The Heinen family is in my prayers. I know how hard it is to lose a dad — age doesn’t matter. RIP Willie.
