Ditto what Mary said! So many good memories with Mouse and Arlene and their family. As kids, we didnít mind the late card games nights during the Holidays. We hated to go home when they were done. If only we could make time stand still!

I have warm and fond memories of Mouse on my dadís farm, always smiling and happy. He brought much laughter to my mom and dad. The last one of a fine Vogt legacy. May he Rest In Peace. Mouse and Arlene both have a special place in our hearts. Love, Mary Jean

My sympathies to Arlene and family. It was a shock to hear Mouse passed away. I always enjoyed being around Mouse and it was really fun to see all the pictures! Those Vogt boys were sure good looking, weren't they? Mouse always had a smile on his face. So good to see all the hugs and kisses for Arlene. I'm sure you will feel his absence keenly, but may all the good memories you have of him bring you comfort in the days ahead.

It was so good to see Mouse and Arlene at Momís 80th birthday - great to catch up with him again. Such a good man. We pray for Godís peace for Mouse and family.
