One of my favorite memories: When I was a kid, most summers I spent a week or two with Dick in Wild Rose. I'll always remember him picking his raspberries and rowing to the resort to sell them. He purposely wore his worst cut-offs because he said he made more money that way.

Dear Karen,David and Brian and families I would like to wish you our deepest sympathies.Our prayers and thoughts go out to you and your families. When I think of Dick I think of all the wonderful,funny and happy times I had with him. When my father passed away I thought of him as my father,brother,uncle and friend someone to look up too. I am so greatful that I was fortunate to know Dick my whole life. It's a shame such a wonderful man left us so soon. Dick would give you the shirt off his back and only ask one thing in return, a chance to look through your trash. One thing for certain the Wild Rose dump will never be the same without Dick.My life is so much fuller just knowing Dick.

I am so greatful that I had the opportunity to meet "Papa Dick" at Halle's birthday party. I have heard so many stories about him from Alex, Emma and Halle, they adored him and I could see that the feelings were mutual. Everyone is very lucky to have memories with him, hold on to them and keep them close. My thoughts are prayers are with the Ronaldson family.

Dick was like a brother to me. I think of him every day. He is much missed.

Sorry to hear of Dick's passing. He was a friend of my sister Ruth in earlier years. His brother Bill and I tolerated him while he was growing up on Coolidge Ave. Was a good kid as I remember, had some interesting experiences while visiting Little Silver Lake in Wildrose, WI.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Karen and Family, I was so sorry to see that you lost your husband. I did not know your husband, but Sharon loved you so much and spoke of you so often and all the fun you had through the years. I am sorry that we were not able to get in touch before you left Racine, but I have thought of you often and am so saddened to hear of your loss.
