Dear family, have many fond memories of Danny and the entire Kehres family. He was the life of the party and was always joking with all. He was a good man. Even though we have not seen him in years he is still in our memories. Our deepest sympathy along with prayers are sent to the family. We are Aunt Doris’s relatives from Cleveland. Use to spend many summer vacations in New Washington at Uncle Jerry’s house. And visit the Kehres farm. Great family and fun times.

Joe & Tammy, Crossroads Community Church - Dec 3, 2015

Sending our sincere sympathy to all the Kehres family. May you feel God’s loving arms all around you during this difficult time.
Love & prayers,
