Mary-Beth and Family,
My sincere condolences to all. From the few times I met him, Hans was a loving and caring husband, father, and all around person. I wish I could be with you and your family today. My prayers are with you all.

To the Markwarth family,
I want to extend my sympathy on the loss of Mr. Hans Markwarth. I work with Susan and what I want to say is that to me no daughter could speak so highly and proud of her dad. Her eyes would light up every time she would tell a story about him. You could see the love she has for him. May God continue to give you all strength and comfort today and always.

He left a legacy of being deeply loved, which is the best legacy of all.

May the famous Markwarth wit and humor be a comfort in the sadder moments.

With love - BLP and Mr. Gowing
