Mrs. Riedl, Denise, Pauly and Family,

I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Riedl,s passing. He will be remembered, especially the days in the middle 1990:s when Denise and I would be at her house and sitting down at the kitchen table and drinking coffee and chatting with him. My condolences go out to everyone in the Family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

From Denise Spinell
Much love and prayers to the Riedl family. Many great memories with Mr. Riedl and the family about his love for fishing and his stories about his life. He will be greatly missed. But knowing he is with our Heavenly Father , and Jesus. Many tears but also a celebration of his life and those he touched.

Sherry Burton

Thank you God for giving us an uncle that was so loving, caring & generous. I'm so happy to have grown up next to you all my life (on Harlem & in Orland Park).

The memories I will take with me are ENORMOUS ... there truly aren't enough pages for me to write everything down BUT to name a few I sure will ... birthdays, weddings, babies, holidays, vacations, delicious home-cooked meals, LAUGHS, small talk, even CRIES (and that's ok), lots of COFFEEEEEE, charades, watching home movies, bbq's .... oh the list goes on & on.

Life sure will be different without you here. Oh very sad at times I sure am BUT during those moments I try to remember "that laugh" and that in itself brings a SMILE to my face. Thank you for being you, I will NEVER FORGET YOU.

May your soul Rest In Peace My Sweet Uncle Paul
