I am sorry for your loss. I will forever think of Dick and Elaine as my second parents as I spent time babysitting Rick and Bob. May you find peace in the memories and love of family and friends.

Rick and Bob,

You have my deepest sympathy. I would see your mother on a regular basis at Eat’n Park. She always had a smile and a few minutes to chat.
