Rick & Darla Berry

JDear Joann, Jim, Amy, Sally, Becky, & Karen, we were so sorry to hear of your loss. Dick was one of the finest men I have known and you were all blessed to have such a great husand and father. I'm sure he and Alvin have already played a round or two of golf in heaven! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.


John and Leanne Anderson

Just want you all to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers! I will always remember your dad as enjoying golf and occasional cards with my parents! I hope you feel peace knowing he is no longer suffering. So sorry I cannot be there personally to share in your grieving!
