So sorry for your loss, Danielle.
Monday, January 20, 2014
Danielle,
Oh Friend!!! Tears are already running down my cheeks. I'm SO SO sorry for your loss. While I rejoice that your Daddy is in the warmth of Gods Love and Jesus arms, I mourn alongside of you. I literally in my chest. He fought the good fight and now he gets to rest next to the healing waters that are gently restoring him as we speak. I can not even IMAGINE what his eyes behold at this very second. I only know with certainty that it is so beyond our comprehension that once we taste it we know there is no place we would rather be. I know his welcome was warm and his home there is filled with every good thing. Not one thing he lacks. His cup now overflows. How I wish I could hug you, my love. I'm so heavy hearted right now.
Monday, January 20, 2014
Danielle,
My prayers and thoughts are with you as always.

Danielle,
When I miss my dad, I look through your pictures...because your family is what love is! I didn't know your dad but I feel like I truly did because he seems like you. I know it's going to be rough not having him here but oh what fun he's having up there, and he is still WITH you! When you smile, I see him! He sure left a huge legacy of love behind and you are doing an amazing job of keeping that legacy going!I can only wish I am able to do that with my family!

His service was touching and I told Dusty, "You know what I got out of it? What will others have to say about me when I'm gone? This guy was always smiling...and laughing..."

I know life isn't all roses, but he seems to have made it work. I want those kind of things said about me when I'm gone so if anything, I wanna be more like HIM! BIG BIG HUGS!

Dear Dani and Family,

Love lives on forever-
in each memory and thought of those who've shared our lives and all the happiness they've brought.
Love lives on forever-
it will never fade away, for in our hearts our loved ones are with us every day.

May the love of friends and family give you comfort in this difficult time. It was certainly a true pleasure to be a friend with your Dad... many times I felt almost like an extension of your "large circle" in your family. I think back fondly about the years seeing him at family/friend functions... those were such fun times... with birthdays, graduations, holidays, weddings, and the like. Dick was such a glad, kind man... happy and upbeat! I knew he was a wonderful father to you and also your friends and mine too! I will miss him, but I know he is at peace now. He did live a long and very productive life. Take care and please accept my sincere condolences regarding the death of your Dad and Grandpa. Prayers and thoughts.
Monday, January 20, 2014
Danielle and Family,
There is a spirit that transcends the need for words and connects us all... a deep empathy that says what happens to one of us affects the rest of us. I just want you to know I feel that strong connection with you now... I just want you to know how very much I care. I'm wishing you peace, comfort and joy in your journey- We all wish for a daughter as beautifully loving as you. You are bright and shining example of grace, courage, and love under fire. I feel blessed just knowing you.
Monday, January 20, 2014
In the loss of your Dad... memories, thoughts, remembrance, sympathy, honor. He was your Dad, and he shaped who you are... gave you his love... taught you what he knew...
You'll always honor him in the way you live your life and in your heart with your lasting memories. We love you Danielle!
Monday, January 20, 2014
Dani, may the memories that fill your heart help to bring you comfort. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Extended Smtih Family ~ I hope you'll excuse the "happy" card, but when I think of your dad and you all, that is what I thnk of: flowers, sunshine, bright!

I truly am so happy to have met you all and been, at least a little, part of your Dad's long and wonderful life! It was a great honor and always a joy. I am so happy he passed away peacefully - that was what we all wished for him when the time was right. Sounds like he knew it was time and he loved you all!

My thoughts are with you during this time, this season and as you reflect upon his life....

Best ~ Lesa (Dr. M.)

Dear Diane and Family,

We are thinking of you and your family at this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Dear Debbie, Danielle, Darci and all of Dick's Family,
What a privilege to care for your father all these weeks...he was such a joyous, positive person and a delight to all who worked with him. I so enjoyed my visits with Dick - and all of you - it was always the bright spot in my day. It was certainly apparent that Dick was very beloved by so many friends and family - what a tribute to the wonderful and kind man that he was.

You should all be comforted in knowing that you so lovingly cared for your father these past few months that provided him the opportunity to die at home surrounded by the daughters (and granddaughters!) he loved so much. No one could have done more to assure his comfort and safety!

I hope you all can take some time now for yourselves and your families after a job well done. God's Peace and Comfort to each of you in the days ahead. I'll be thinking of you.
Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Our thoughts and love are with you.
Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Debbie and Family - May your lifetime memories of happiness and joy with your Father comfort you at this time of loss. May peace come to you and your family over these difficult days ahead. Love to you all.
Wednesday, January 08, 2014
Our love always.
Monday, December 30, 2013

I'll love you forever Grandpa. Love, Sis.

Thursday, December 26, 2013
I will try again, I wrote a condolence the first day , but it seemed to of gotten lost, and waited as I didn't want to repeat it, I just wanted to say what a special guy Smitty was, he was a great dad, bro in law , but most of all friend, never ending friend and I have to say his mother must get credit for his respect for women, as anyone who knew him saw that, he sent my Mother red roses for her birthdays, etc.. He was always at the ready to assist anyone in need.. His Grandkids all have a wonderful legacy to follow their Papa.. He had invited me to his 100 th , b'day and I was counting on that, I would be 96 so should I happen to make that date Smitty, I will celebrate for us... Rest well buddy, will never forget you, and will always be there for any of the kids ..
Tuesday, December 24, 2013
I am so saddened to hear this news. Not only was he my "Uncle Dick" I always thought of him as a great friend! A truly class & fun guy!!

Dick, I am so happy to have had you as a part of my life. You were such a giving person and always willing to help anyone. I will never forget you and some of my favorite memories are of being with you in the Mountains. I am so sad that you have left. We all lost a great man but I hope to see you when it is my time. Save a place by the fire for me. If you see my Brother Don or Bud tell them I miss them too.

A better father in law no man could ever ask for. If ever there was a person willing to give the shirt off his back it was Richard. Some day our paths will cross once again dad.

Your son in law Ed

For so many years Dick played a very large role in the life of my son Rob. Dick was like a dad in so many ways, not just to his own son Rich, but to every young man who called him friend. They played hard together and Dick shared and taught all the boys so much. Dick will be missed and always remembered well. The memories are golden and will remain forever as long as they are shared. Rest well Smitty, and watch over your boys, all of them. With deepest sympathy and heartfelt regards, Karen (Gusdal) Chesnut
