"a long journey"

We received the news this morning that John Schroeder passed away yesterday. John was the President of Schroeder's Department Store and a man very active in the Two Rivers community.

"This has been a long journey," is how the message from John's family began. It's also the beginning of another journey, for John, his family and friends, and the community as we say farewell to this man who was very much a positive force in this city. I did not know John nearly as well as many folks who have been here for many more years than I, but I came to know and like him him as a dedicated community leader, a fine businessman, and a guy with a great, dry sense of humor. Our very warmest thoughts and wishes go out to John's family.
