eBetty and I along with our family extend our deepest sympathy. Dick was truly great
in each and every way a person can be measured.

I doubt that my Dad had a greater friend and I am sure that Dad was there to great him in Heaven, hopefully with a cold one from the Silver Moon and
sitting at a card table with Uncle Frank and Uncle Herman ready to deal Dick in.
Love to the family

June and Family, Dick will most certainly be missed. I enjoyed talking to him when I would come in the store. I pray for God to heal your broken hearts. He's the only one that can do that. We were so blessed to have had Dick in our lives. We will see you and your son at the store. You are loved and we are here for you.
