God bless you your family during this difficult time.

Betty and Family, We are so sorry for your loss. The block will just never be the same without Rick. He always had a smile and a friendly word as we passed by on our walks. He took such pride in his lawn and garden and pond. It was always such a treat when we could come and enjoy his yard work. Such talent!! The "little kids" here already miss him!
Love to you all,
Tim and Kathy

All of my fond memories of visiting Wisconsin as a kid are at your house, Aunt Betty, with you and Uncle Rick and all my cousins. What fun we had watching you parents play cards while we ran around the house and played in your wonderful backyard. Wish we could be there to give hugs in person. But instead, sending hugs and warm wishes from sunny Florida. You are all in our prayers. xo

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
