Rick and Tim, sorry to hear the loss of your father. I know and remember how stern he was of his boys, in fact how stern he was of all the neighborhood kids. I have very fond memories of your Dad from the neighborhood growing up and from the Community Center when he work there.
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your families at this time in need.
Dick,Tim [Moosey],Angela and Patty
I just wanted say that I was sorry to hear about the loss of your family member. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Unfortunately I have not been feeling well,so I probably will not be able to pay my respects in person.
I will try to send a card out to Tim and Angela, with a memorial contribution for the church.
