Condolences

Thinking of Dicks family durning this time of sadness . May you find comfort ,as you all gather and reminisces about good times and wonderful family memories .

Sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. He was a Great Man.

Loved by many!

Today and always, may loving memories bring you peace, comfort, and strength.

I’m always reminded of the words of Saint Paul who said, “Brethern I would not have you to be ignorant concerning them which have fallen asleep that you sorrow not as those who have no hope for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” May you find your comfort and hope for all your tomorrows. I will always remember Dick’s smile at Lions Club and his gracious good humor.
