Dear Joan and Family:
Karen and I were and are out of town when we heard the news. Dick was a great friend as were all of you and his loss leaves quite a vacancy. Our prayers are with you always.

Dear Bierck Family,

We share your sorrow over your father's passing, and also the joy of having had such a wonderful and caring parent. There must be some degree of happiness that he is no longer in any pain and that God will take such wonderful and eternal care of him. Blessings!
