Not sure what to say?

Cousins Rich and Cathy,
Sorry to hear of your father's passing. He was the last of the Dyer brothers. God's blesings to you and your families.

Dear Rich and Cathy,

I am so sorry to hear of the death of our your father, my Uncle Richard. I remember the time that I came to visit Uncle Richard, Aunt Phyllis, and both of you when I attended a Clown Conference in Berkley. You were all so hospitable to me. I had such a wonderful time getting to know all of you, especially Uncle Richard and Aunt Phyllis. My Mom, Helen, always likes to tell me stories of the times when all the Dyers were "growing up" in both Salem...

Dick is a very decent and good man who always put his family first. On top of this, he is also a Sinatra fan! I put down present-tense and not past-tense, since as long as we remember him, Dick will be with us. I miss him more than I can say.

Pater was a good man. He always provided for his family and tried his best. His quick wit and wry sense of humor would always bring a smile or chuckle. Going to miss you Pater.

We will never forget Pater's dry wit and what a pleasure he was to be around. We will celebrate his life with a smile and laughter.

With Love,
Dee Roberts and Gary Koch

Pater, Cathy, and Joe Costa Rica

Dear Pater will be sorely missed. His smile and his twinkling eyes, that is what I remember most. Cooking vegetables for Mark's breakfast. What a special man. Rest in peace.
With love

Dear Cathy and Rich. Please remember the good things about Pater -- his dry sense of humor, his sweet, gentle nature. I know how much I enjoyed spending time with him. Please celebrate his life and know how blessed you were to have such a wonderful father.
