Hazel,
So sorry for your loss. I believe I know you from years ago. You may have stayed at my grandmother's home while in Fort Wayne. My grandmother lived on Bayer Ave. Please accept my sympathy. I hope you will contact me. My phone number is in Fort Wayne telephone book.

Hazel, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in your time of grief. May your numerous wonderful memories of Dick bring you comfort. I will forever cherish the great times I've spent with you, Dick and Charlie. Our basketball and golf sharing times were always spirited and his knowledge was immense. I'll forever remember his contagious smile, positive and fun loving attitude. You were both blessed to have enjoyed all those years of a loving and happy marriage together.

Chris, I am so sad to hear the passing of your father. I will always remember him for teaching me the game of golf. The first time I ever swung a club was with your father during one of my many stays at your family's lake cottage on big long lake. I will forever remember him with a smile on my face. Seek Gods comfort during this time of sorrow. Love, Kevin Barnard
