The 28 years of my life I never bothered to ask about my families history. I never heard any stories nor the names of my grandparents so i did my own research and came across this Memorial page. I was startled to find out the cause of my great grandfathers death but he passed as an honorable brave & sacrificial man as well as my grandfather, his son. I must admit I am very proud to say I am a Schmitz.
