Our hearts and prayers are with you. I think our folks go back almost to the day we were born. They had such fun together, just as we did as kids. Your dad had such a terrific sense of humor and, even as a child, he always made me laugh. I could never figure out how he could put a watermelon seed in one ear and pull it out the other. I lost my dad this year, too--on August 2. As one friend told me, "God must have needed a lot of recruits this year!" I'm sure our dads will have a lot of fun together in heaven. Love and hugs, Linda (Beermann) Goddard and husband Michael

We lived next door to Wick and Doris for many years. They were such great neighbors and so friendly. We had many conversations with Wick over the back yard fence over the years. He will be missed.

We, have such wonderful memories of Wick and Doris. They were the BEST neighbors any one could imagine. From the frequent friendly visits whether it be over the fence or in the living room, to the complimentary snow-blowing, help with home projects, and the thumbprint cookies!!! I could go on for hours as the memories remain engraved in our lives. Wick and Doris - It is our dream to reunite in heaven some day. Have the marble game ready and we'll play into the night ... just like the good old days. Peggy and Dennis Bashline
