Thoughts for Hannelore “Honey” Wisman;

  • Chris Potthast says:

    Love you mom. You were the glue that kept us together and taught us to always have each other’s back. You told us one day we would only have each other, so always be there for each other. You protected us fiercely. Everyone should know the love you gave. Miss you.

  • You taught us to be Strong, Kind, Caring, not judge people by circumstances, and above all show love to people that are in my life. You showed us how to be Proud, but humble, Live with Integrity, and walk with our heads high and not be swayed by peoples petty opinion’s. You taught us God would take care of us, but not wait on us. You were ALWAYS there! You loved us all Equally, but individulally, you protected and defended us with your life and you were proud of our accomplishments. You taught us to love each other…we were Family and we always need to be there for each other.
    You LOVED us unconditionally and made sure we knew we were loved. You encouraged us to go forward in life and follow our dreams.
    My Heart hurts unbearably to know, I will not hear your voice, or feel your loving touch as I continue my life’s journey on earth. I do know I will see you again and await that day with Joy. God Keep me strong in my Faith until we meet again in Heaven.
    I Love you Mom!

    Dear family members of Hannah:

    I always enjoyed your Mom’s pleasant smile and brief conversations when I worked at the hospital.

    Your Mom was such an inspiration to so many people.

    I shall forever cherish the corcheted old fashion record player which I use EVERY year on my Christmas tree. It means so much.

    My condolences to Hannah’s entire family 🙏
