Uncle Dick and Auntie Vi were always so much fun to visit with when they were staying by my Mom and Dad in Chandler. It's been years since I've seen them, but have many fond memories. He's with lots of brothers and sisters and Grandpa and Grandma now. RIP

I am looking at the pictures of your Dad! When my brother Alan DeKruif shared pics couple of years ago, I immediately thought of your Grandpa! Here, in both pictures, I see a replica of MY Dad!!

I am SO SORRY for your loss!! LIFE is so short: we need to live each moment as if it's the last!! My memories of "Dick" & Vi include Holiday Gatherings at the bank in LuVerne! There were always SO MANY of us!
I am currently scanning photographs from my Dad (Bill DeKruif & LaVonne); finding many from many gatherings! I have SO MANY to sort through and scan!! SO MANY memories!
Unfortunately Don & I haven't been able to get to AZ to visit! However my brother Alan HAS good memories from visiting with you, your family, and Uncle Dick!!
