Cathy and Amy, I am so sorry about the loss of your beloved husband and father. He is a man I remember fondly from early in my teaching career. May your memories bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Dear Cathy, Marc, Amy and families,
Dick left so many memories for you all to cry over now and someday smile about. Living next door to you for several years remind me of the kindness Dick always have his neighbors. He always had a smile, like the time my mother chased him with a water hose till the hose ran out halfway across the road. We laughed about that for years. My mother and I laughed about it yesterday. He loved life and everything and everyone around him. Your loss is very hard now, but remember all the joy he gave many, many people.
Thinking of you all, Arlene (and Glendayle) and Dennis Kerstetter.
