Bob & Sally - Nov 3, 2011

Dear Johanna and family,
Bob and I send heartfelt our sympathy to you and yours. When we think of Dick and hear his voice and laughter in our hearts and minds, it is incomprehensible to think of the pain that you are currently feeling.
Dick’s memory lives on in his many good deeds. If you or anyone in the family needs a vehicle once you arrive in heaven, rest assured Dick will have it in tip top running condition plus he will know where to get a replacement part should one ever be needed. Don’t worry! God will keep him happy in paradise.
Bob & Sally

I am so sorry for your loss. Dick was a great man with a kind heart. I’m sure he is as proud of all of you as you are of him. Always remember the good times, they make the bad times seem a little brighter ? Sending you lots of prayers and well wishes across the miles!
