Here we are, another Christmas Holiday Season. We just had Thanksgiving, and thoughts were taken to how needful of us all to be Thankful to God for all we have, even our lives - He is the Author and Finisher of our Faith. I know that Arte and Shirley are at peace. The cares of this world are behind them now, as they are busy working to gather in their family. They are mindful of all of you. Remember they are only a thought and a heartbeat away from us and when we think of them, and ask God to call them present and you can talk to them and they will hear you. There is no death in dying, only a short time of separation; we will live on as they are doing so now. Rest in peace, Arte and Shirley. You both are never too far away from us in thought and love. - Jake

Thank you for coming today, for this celebration of Shirley’s life. As you know, Shirley had a wicked sense of humor. So this is going to go down today, the way she would of wanted it. There will be some colorful language in here. So you may want your children to cover their ears, or have them adjourn to the other room. My children are use to colorful language so they can stay here. I am surprised to see so many of you here today, as Shirley didn’t like many of you! For those of you who do not know me, I am Tammy, Shirley’s grand daughter. I am only 18 years old, but I have lived with Shirley or Shirley has lived with me for over ½ of my life. Right now I am going to tell you about grandma’s infamous phrases: What a Crock of ****. Lying sack of ****. You don’t know ****. Holy Shit. Oh Shit She sure liked to talk about ****. Dr. Strong had asked grandma if she had a bowel movement since she had been hospitalized - she said no – but she said she was always full of **** anyway. Then the nurse in the hospital asked grandma if she had a bowel movement – she said SHIT NO She sure was obsessed with ****. Infact, just in case, we put exlax in her purse, which was in her coffin, as she was always obsessed not only with ****, but her purse. Other favorite things to say Kiss my ass. Get your head out of your ass. I am going to spank your ass. I’m gonna smack you upside the head. Since I was a baby I always spent the weekends at grandma and grandpa’s. Mom and my Dad were out doing god knows what. She would make my Aunt Bonnie stay home from school on Monday’s because I didn’t want to go home. With all the **** words flying around the house, I remember saying ****, and I got chased around the kitchen table. Why did that shock you? Aunt Bonnie spanked my ass that time. Other favorite sayings: Tammy you’re a betch. When I got pregnant and she told JJ on our wedding day, you know just because she is knocked doesn’t mean you have to marry her, she is a betch, ya know? JJ thought she was kidding, but a few weeks later she said I warned you! When Trey was born, you said “Tammy” don’t give him vacinnations, vaccinations cause autism. I thought she was full of SHIT. When, she said, Tammy, something is wrong with Trey, you better take him to a phchiatrist, again, again I thought she was full of SHIT. When Trey was diagnosed with Autism, she said “holy ****” and she was going to smack me upside the head and she did. You always call me the QUEEN– everyone else calls me Tammy Faye. You really are the Queen, I really am just Tammy Faye. Grandma liked this bumper sticker and wished she had it when Artie use to get in trouble. Grandma always had a driver’s license, but she never drove. Until one time my mom was in the hospital. Grandma and I had to go to the laundry mat on Fond du Lac, Avenue. I was scared because I really didn’t know she could drive, as I had never seen her do so. I had every right to be scared, because she pulled out in front of a car on Fond du Lac Avenue. Crash, boom, bang. She was okay, but because I said OH SHIT, she spanked my ass. It must of scared the **** out of her, because she never drove again . Grandma loved he cigarettes. When, I was a child I remember she would light up anywhere. Mostly in Copp’s, department store. She would look around, light up a cigarette, take a few puffs, wave the smoke away than put it out, just to light it up again a couple minutes later. After her open heart surgery, she sad she gave up cigarettes. What a crock of ****. Let me share at this point a couple of other grandma’s favorite sayings Get your eyes checked. Hell no. You don’t know what you are talking about. You ole’ Battle Axe Years after her heart surgery, my mom and grandma stopped at Osco Drugs, so my mom could pick up a prescription. Grandma stayed in the car. I was driving down Johnson Street, and saw my mom’s car. I decided to stop in and visit with them. As I walked up to their car, I seen grandma in it. She was staring at the front door of Osco’s and didn’t see me walking toward her from the other side. I watched her as she puffed away on a cigarette. I watched her exhale. I knocked on her window and I scared the **** out of her. I said what are you doing smoking? She said I was not smoking Tammy. I said why is there a lite cigarette in the ashtray? She said that was my mom’s. I said grandma I just watched you smoke it. She said hell no, get your eyes checked, you don’t know what you are talking about you old battle axe. If you were a non-related young male watch out. Because she would call you her “boyfriend” and joke around about having them come sneak into her bedroom window at night. She told the male nurse who wanted to give her an echo cardiogram, yeah sure you just want to feel me up!!!! I could go on and on about funny stories. You got a kick out of how Trey called you “Great-Grandma” and my mom Gloria “Regular Grandma” but he was right you really were a Great-Grandma. She called at least once every night and told me to make sure my kids got their medicine. She couldn’t remember if she took hers, but she always reminded me about my kids. I know you are at peace. But, I can’t help being selfish and want you to be here with me. But, I understand that someone needs to keep everyone else entertained in heaven, and I am sure you are a pretty popular girl up there already. I hope they appreciate what a true gem you are. Each day with you was a gift from God. The thought of being here on earth without you, scares the **** out of me. But I know you are up there saying, get your head out of your ass, before I smack you upside the head. Pull yourself together and go on with life. Don’t forget to give the kids their medicine. Finally one other of grandma’s other favorites: Sonza Bitch Donna have you been drinking beer again? I can just imagine grandpa, grandma and Donna uniting in heaven. Art you sonza ****, what other guys have been sneaking around into my bedroom? You don’t know what you are talking about, your full of ****. You can kiss my ass, and I am gonna smack you across the head! Oh, how I love and missed you my husband. Donna my baby girl, you don’t need to hide your beer anymore. Let’s all crack one open.

My heart goes out to the Krenn Family in the loss of their loved-one. I know it is difficult to lose someone you love so much, but there is comfort in knowing that with the Lord, no one is forgotten or ceases to exist. We have the comforting words of St. Paul who said, "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord" - (2 Corinthians 5:8). We know that our True and *Real* Life is not here, but has always been with God in His Kingdom - the Place we are striving for, I hope, in this mortal and short existence. To be free of the tethers and weight of the struggle in this life, gives death not such a fearful thing to consider. Therefore, "...trust in the Lord and lean not unto your own understanding; in all your ways, acknowledge His Presence in your lives" (Proverbs 3:5-8). There is a "Balm in Gilead" if we seek it early and keep it all our days. Blessed is the Memory of Shirley Elaine Krenn. She is now at Peace. Take comfort in knowing this, and that she is now with the Lord our Savior and her beloved husband, Arthur Krenn, our Hero" Jake Jaccard, Winchester, TN

Artey, your beloved Shirley has now come Home to be with you. It is a sad time for the family, but we also know that the trials, pains and sorrow will fast leave when we know she is there with the Lord and with you.. We're glad she is now at peace and out of pain and found Perfect Peace. We love you both... and have not forgotten you. -

I wanted to celebrate with you the arrival of your sweet wife Shirley, who has finally come Home. I am so happy for you, knowing how strong a family man you are. I know your kids, family members and friends all know that it is a good thing that Shirley is now at rest.. they will still miss her, but will celebrate with us the same joy knowing that you are now together again. Rest in Glorious Peace, Arte and Shirley!

Kenny

Artey, another year has passed since you left us. There isn't a day go by that I don't think of you and missing you. Your whole family does. I am always touched when I read these memorials. I know you are also. Now you have Donna there with you. It must be like a 'homecoming' to have loved ones slowly gather around you. One day all of us will be there with you. Keep on Praying for us and America. You would be sickened to see where this country has gone since you left! You would spin in your grave if you could see what is going on in this country, but you'd be proud of the Tea Party, and I know you would have been the first in Fondy to join up! (Me too)... take care, brother; not many years now before I will meet up with you there. Until then, tell all how much we love you people! - Always, Kenny (Jake)

Hi, Pop pa - long time. I am so sorry life has been so crazy, like me, I am sure you know. Trey was crying on Friday night because it was the 3rd year of the anniversary of your release to heaven. The pain seems like yesterday. Soon unfortunately one of your baby girls, will be joining you soon, wrap her in your heavenly arms and take care of her. Tell her that I am so sorry and that I always thought of her as my summer mommy, and that she brought me a lot of joy as a child. Tell her I will always remember her fondly. Tell her that I love her. I hope that many of us, can finally quit then deadly habit of smoking. The robber of life. We always love and think of you always Your loving grand daughter Tammy,
