Our deepest sympathy and prayers to the family.

Dick & Pat were active volunteers at St. Piux X church in Van Etten, NY. They started the annual fundraiser of selling ice cream during the Van Etten fall festival. We enjoyed volunteering with them and always managed to have fun selling ice cream regardless of the weather.
