The Bielefeld family is an iconic part of my childhood. As your nextdoor neighbor with a much smaller family, your family of eleven great people was amazing and mystifying to me. All those milk jugs in the fridge! That huge, awesome lazy susan made by Mr. Bielefeld! Always somebody fun to hang out with! Your family holds a special place in my heart. Very sad to hear of Mr. Bielefelds passing. I wish I could be there with you all today. My mom will be there. Big love to you all.

Dear Helen & Family,

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you deal with the passing of your husband/father and grandfather. Dick was a hard worker and a proud of you his children. There is a lot one can share about this untiring love Dick held. I was always deeply moved how Dick was present to your mom Helen when she was bedridden. He had no qualms taking care of her needs and was diligent with her care. He may not have openly shared his love, it was obvious in his actions. He is truly at peace with our God for he was a true servant. It is our faith that summons us to believe that his "life is simply changed not ended." I hold you in prayer.

In the Risen Christ,
Fr. Marv Knighton
