Our deepest sympathy to the entire Schaefer family. Wallace's wife, Cecilia (we kids called her Nana) was my Dad's cousin and he was raised by her parents. Our families were very close and we loved spending time with them. Wallace and Nana loved dancing to Polka music. I saw them more than once on the "Big Joe Polka Show" on TV. It's comforting to know that they may be dancing together again in Heaven right now.
