Mr. Rank always a smile and a hearty laugh. I can still picture him in his living room with three games going at once on tv and radio. I´ll be praying for your family as you face another significant loss.

Most sincere sympathy to my dear cousins Linda, Karen and Donald. Uncle Dick was such an upbeat, enthusiastic person! An avid sports fan, he loved to rib on me about the Packers. He made everyone around him smile! The best was his relationship with Aunt Sissy! What a team they made! I wish I could have seen that heavenly reunion...surely the angels sang when they embraced again after so much time apart. My heart breaks for you, my dear cousins. Please know that our love, thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Carol & Craig
