Mrs. Farrell and family, I am so sorry to hear about Dick. My heart goes out to all of you. Growing up in New Washington it always feels like you have lost a member of your own family when someone passes. Small towns are wonderful like that. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Mrs. Farrell and family,
My sister, Susan, and I were saddened to hear of Dick’s passing. We have fond memories of all of your family and the times we spent playing on your front porch and in the field next to your house.
Please accept our condolences.
Margaret Sage Tubaugh and Susan Sage
