Memories Timeline


  1. I remember waiting with my grandmother to see the doctor,Dr. Reynierse. We waited for hours so we would be the first patient Saturday morning. Later Dr. Reynierse became my doctor… he helped me get into nursing school at MAC. I have worked at MARMC for 25 years, the last 11 years with Dr. Peters. I enjoyed the times Dr.Reynierse came to see Dr. Peters. Dr. Reynierse was a very special man and a friend; I will miss him. Agnes 'Vogt' Hinkebein, RN

  2. I always liked and respected Dr. Reynierse and was a classmate and friend of Father Peter Reynierse. I would like to pass along my sincere condolences to the entire family, truly a loss for not only the family but all of society.

  3. He was and always will be my motivation in all aspects of my life . I am very thankful of the lessons I have learned from my Grandfather . I am thankful of the lessons I continue to learn from my Father and thankful of the lesson I am able to pass onto my children . There hasn't been a single day that has passed for as long as I can remember that I have not thank God for my Grandfather , Grandmother and all the Love they have passed onto me. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comet in the morning. (Psalms 30:5)

  4. We want you to know that we're thinking of all of you with love and sympathy. Loved the video.

  5. My sincere condolences to the Reynierse family. I have happy memories of playing at your house when I was at W.L. Johns with Becky. Tamara Ward

  6. Dear Virginia: I am so sorry to hear from Mike about losing Doc. He is very special to me and I sure hate the thought of this earth without him and his stories. I hope that you can take some comfort from good memories and from Becky and her family and from Mike and Peter. No one can experience your loss but we can understand it. Please accept my sympathy and my prayers for you to focus on the good memories of Doc and let the love of God and your family surround you in this very very difficult time. Love, Cara Schnebelen Detring
