I am thinking of the Sontheimer family in this time of grief. I have such good memories of your home and the ice cream parlor. God bless you all. Amanda Eileen (Bliss) Hamm, October 26, 2012 We are so sad to hear about Mr. Gene. He has been a great neighbor for 15 years. Lots of good memories. We will miss his smile and his wonderful pies. Praying for Ms. Wilda and all the family. He left a great legacy. Ruth Green, October 25, 2012 I am so sorry to hear of Genes passing. My heart goes out to Wilda and the rest of the family.
