Our prayers and wympathies to the entire family of Albert Pfaffenroth. This man and wife Martha poured their hearts into the youth of the church. I have such fond memories of accompanying him, along with his nephews David and Dean, as we played piano and musical instruments as he filled the pulpit in various churches or participated in the German Brothers Sunday afternoon Bible study in German! Sleepovers at the farm, learning to drive the old pickup on the "back 40". We loved you Albert. You are home.

Dear Jim, Sharon, and all the Pfaffenroth Families,

We sorrow with you in the loss of this wonderful man. Nancy and I remember so vividly sitting in his dining room only days after we had been married. Within moments our hearts were turned to scripture when Albert asked us to share a verse from the Bible. As Providence would have it, the passage I quoted was Proverbs 3:5-6 which turned out to be his favorite.

May all that God is for us in Christ Jesus bring comfort and hope and joy in sorrow as you celebrate Grandpa Pfaffenroth's entrance into the joy of the Lord.

Rudy, Nancy, Sela and Jonathan

Uncle Albert was like another Grandpa to me. I remember coming home from grade school one day and my parents weren't home, which was totally unusual. I called Uncle Albert and Aunt Martha and he told me not to worry... I wasn't alone, Jesus was with me! Of course at that time, I wanted Jesus with skin on! But I always had the security of them being close by!! I remember on Sunday nights at church, he would always request the chorus, "I just keep trusting my Lord," and I loved that song. Finally, I remember how he encouraged my husband Jim in so many ways... encouraging him to go to men's retreat, praying with him!!! OOps one more thing, one time after church, as newlyweds, after going out to eat after church, he said he and Aunt Martha were coming over to our house to see our new home! I remember putting all my dirty dishes in the oven so my kitchen would look clean! I really loved them both, I hope I will always follow Jesus like they did.

Uncle Albert would take a car full of kids, most nieces and nephews, to Sheboygan for German Brotherhood rallies. We'd sit and listen for hours to men in German and English. Then, Uncle Albert would stand up and announce to the church,"now, Sue(or whoever he called on) will come up and give her testimony" We would all freeze. But we did it. You didn't say no to Uncle Albert. Not out of fear, but you knew he was genuine in his faith and "why wouldn't everyone want to share it". He is the most Christ-like person on earth I have ever known. I am so happy that he is with his heavenly Father. Well done, good and faithful servant.
