Dear Kay and Van Deweghe/Falk Family, Jim and I were sorry to hear of Dick's passing, but so grateful that we were able to have had such a wonderful time together last summer. We enjoyed meeting all of you, and learning so many things about the Bloomquist family. Unfortunately, we will be unable to travel to Appleton this weekend, as we are in the midst of settling our daughter and her family into their new home in Marquette, MI. We have to be there on Friday to tie up some loose ends, but will be thinking of all of you and your one-of-a kind husband and father, steamdick!

“It is with much sadness and a heavy heart that I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Kay and to the family and friends of my cousin, Dick. The last time we talked he was as always the epitome of love and caring. He was always interested in what was happening in my life and with my health. I was unable to participate in the family reunion last summer but typical of Dick and Kay, on their way home from Escanaba they stopped to see me at the hospital in Green Bay. I have so many fond memories and could go on and on. Suffice it to say that my thoughts and prayers and the memories in my heart are with Dicks family and friends as he begins his journey home to our Lord and Saviour. May the comfort of the sure knowledge of the resurrection be with you all. God’s blessings of peace, comfort and eternal love.” —Donna and Larry Jensen (Dick was my cousin and also my Godfather)

My heart is soo heavy it hurts right now. My Uncle Dick was an awesome man! Always a caring, loving uncle. After my dad's passing he was the only father figure I knew. He treated all of us no different then his kids. The was a joker also. I still. Remember when I was 7-8 yrs. He had a flat top hair style that I always was fascinated by. One time I asked him "How do you get it to stand up like that all the time?" His answer.."I sleep with my head hanging over the bed!" & with his big smile! I still think of that fondly. Not to mention how we all would find little "souvenirs" of his visits. Buckeyes! He would hide them in drawers, closets, cabinets and wherever he could sneak them. I found one years after he had visited when my daughter Jackie was born when we moved. Still made me smile! He took up my son Taylor & I when he was 6 or so in a plane & flew us around the area! He even let Taylor "fly" the plane! Which Taylor still remembers today! What memories we have of him! He will be missed by everyone! My love & hugs to all my cousins in this sorrowful time.
