Our fellow Brennecke genealogist and friend, Bob Brenneke, is in need of prayer as he struggles with cancer. Bob has been continuing the research of his Brenneke (without a "c") line for the past 22 years.
You can find his line in Cluster 4 (updated today). The research of this line was started by A.M. (Gus) Brennecke. Gus and Herb Schaper (who began the research for Cluster 1) communicated in the 1970's.
The connection between the two lines was reopened when Bob found our line (cluster 1) on the internet in 2003 in hopes of possibly someday making a bigger connection with other Brenneckes.
I wish that I was a bit older myself when I met Bob online so that I would have had more free time to be able to work towards finding that connection. Time sure does get away from us as it is already 2007 and I have hardly even touched the stacks of information I have in my possession. If only I had, maybe a connection could have already been found. It saddens me and maybe there is some lesson to be learned about our lives and time in all of this.
I did dig out my older binders and the dust went flying today.
If there are any Brennecke researchers who would like to take the time now, before too much more time passes, to look into his line for Bob, it would touch his heart (and mine).
I note from his photo that Bob was in World War II. I thank him and God for his service to our country. Having recently lost my own Grandpa in February who was also in the war, this is even touching my heart more. There is nothing quite like the memory of soldier after soldier walking by my Grandpa's casket saluting him. I salute Bob.
Here is a photo of Bob with his girls. Certainly, we pray for them as well as they go through this difficult time. We ask God to give them peace. We ask God to enable boundless quality time together that will remain as memories forever.
