It has been 50 years after my fathers death and as an adult, I wonder what my life would have been with him?
I thank you all for your sentiments. My brother (Tim Jantz) and I returned to Baraboo ten years ago to bury my grandmother (my fathers mother) and were well received. People do not forget!

Hi Mrs. Jantz:
What an absolutely moving reflection,
To say I"m still devastated,is quite an understatement.
Delivering newspapers at age 11 in Madison this was a huge
story to me and my customers on the route. My dad had talked about it constantly of course,very concerned and when he died right after the sentencing in"62 I probably knew or had an idea of what you all were going through and my heart certainly went out to you then AS it does now.
Some things you just never get over in the same context that some things are UN forgiveable.
With Heartfelt Sincerity Always

50 years ago we lost you. We miss you and all things that we could have talked, laughed and done together. But life must go on and you would be proud of your sons as they are proud of you. Timothy has become a sheriff in COLORADO. And he has made a very good one. Your son Brian whom you never got to see is bright, funny has his own company. We all have you in our hearts forever and one day we will all meet again. We will always love you. From your wife who loves you now as I did 50 years ago.

James Jantz's son became the head sheriff in January 2007 and he was elected again on January 2011 for a second term. His name is Tim Jantz and I know his ex-wife Julie Jantz who is my teacher's aide (James' ex-daughter-in-law) for over 20 years. I heard the name Jantz since I was a small boy. It is touching because his (James) son became a sheriff to continue the family tradition (possibly) to this day. God bless him and his family.

God bless you for your bravery and sacrifice. My heartfelt sympathy to your family. I am glad that your son is carrying on for you now. Can't believe they let your killers out on parole! WTF?! God will tend to them down the road, if he hasn't already. My thanks to you and your fellow law enforcement officers for putting your lives on the line, to keep the rest of us safe. Bless you one and all.

What a travesty of justice! I can't believe your killers were paroled. They will get their just reward before the real Judge. Rest in peace sir.
