Not sure what to say?

Dick was an incredible man.He had a knack for listening without judging.He was a good friend and I will surely miss him.I feel sorry for his family.

Any day that Dick volunteered at Silver Cross was a good day. It was a privilege to know him and he will be missed by many.

Everyone at the CI-Lows Camping Club, will miss you very much.

We will miss his 'twinkle in the eye' sharp wit and 'fun-loving' spirit. We chuckled at 'living to be 100' as one of our goals. Now I'm sad he didn't reach it.
Jesus will take good care of him.

I had the privilege and honor to work at Silver Cross with a man that made me laugh and smile on Mondays.He always made sure my family was doing o.k. and would ask about them regularly.
My heart is truly heavy and am sadden but I know heaven is so much brighter with another angel.

To Dick's Family and Friends,
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort. Volunteering at Silver Cross will not be the same without Dick's smiling presence.

From all of us at Rick's RV Center in Joliet - we would like to give our deepest sympathy to the family of Dick "Abe" as we called him. He was a kind and loyal customer, always with a smile and a joke. The stories he would tell. He will be missed by us all.

You will be sorely missed around the campfire. It was an honor to have known you.

I wish to extend to you and to members of your family my deepest sympathy on your loss. May the Lord's loving promises comfort you and give you strength as you walk through this difficult time. On behalf of a grateful nation as an expression of appreciation for the honorable and faithful service rendered by your loved one. (If you wish a personalized memorial card mailed to you with history of playing of taps, 21 gun salute, meaning of each fold of the flag as a keepsake, mail to: ...
