My deepest condolences to all of the Guriches....Dick and Lois were 2nd parents to me and I will miss them both greatly.

I'm sending my deepest sorrow and my sincere condolences to all members of the family . Robert

He was my favorite customer at a little cafe where him and his friends would come play bridge on Tuesdays! I would talk with him for hours about his farming and things he had done in his life. And we all agreed at the job “they just don’t make em like that any more! He was a good man I’m so sorry to hear of his passing! Many condolences to his children and family! This really just breaks my heart!
