Now you can rest in peace, Dad, and enjoy the glorious "Big Garden" now. We will miss you.
There never was a more caring and loving Father-in-law than you. I shall miss your constant care and concern for our well being and your expressions of love. Rest in peace and see you again some day.
Miss you Grandpa. Now I can talk to you whenever I want to! Love you!
Barb, so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. Our condolences to you and your family. Your in our thoughts and prayer at this time Love Karen
Very sorry to hear of Richards passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
Richard was a very special person in my life and for our family. He was the example of the basic Christian principle of "serving rather to be served". He was humble, yet had forceful beliefs and values! He had a wonderful sense of humor that made us all laugh. I will miss him dearly, especially as I was hoping to see him at my return home from overseas. He is resting in peace now close to good and I hope he runs into Abuelo Dario and Kleine
