Bob left a message on June 8, 2016:
You weren’t an astronaut, or a lawyer, or a scientist. You weren’t a race car driver, or a doctor, or a millionaire. You didn’t invent anything or jump out of airplanes. You didn’t run marathons or write any books. There are many things in life that you weren’t and many things that you didn’t do. None of that matters. The most important thing to me is who you were. You were my father. You will always be.

Carlene and family: I'm so glad I was able to travel to Appleton last month and was able to share some time with Rick while staying with Anne Marie and Mike. I was so saddened to learn he'd been hospitalized and extremely saddened to learn of his passing. I hope the many years of wonderful memories will help you all through this difficult time.
