  1. Dear Jean:

    It goes without saying that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Time can never erase the fond memories I have of time spent with both of you. It seems impossible that it’s 35 years since Dick got me my first real job. I turned to Dick for advice more than once in the years that followed. He will be sorely missed.

  2. Jeannie and family: Jim and I are very sorry for your loss of a wonderful husband and father. We will keep with us the many wonderful memories of Dick. Jeannie, boating is not the same without the two of you. We miss you.

  3. Dear Joyce and Dan,

    It has been many years, but in doing a quick search for you in Ogden Dunes, I stumbled upon this announcement regarding your father. My sympathies go out to you and yours.

    This hits all too close to home, as my father passed away last September in FL. He was 84.

    Wishing you well.
