Sunday's Obituary - Patrick H Cayemberg

Green Bay Press Gazette,
23JAN1997, Pg B-5
As promised today I'm posting the second obituary of my husband's paternal grandparents. Patrick passed shortly after his wife, Laura, who had been in a care facility for Alzheimer's at the end of her life. They loved each other dearly and Patrick wanted to last only long enough to ensure that Laura was cared for. He succeeded and passed only a few days after her.
