Mary Beth, Diane, Richard and Joe, our deepest sympathy on the passing of your father. It is truly the worst of times but also the best of times, as he suffers no more and he is at home and at rest with your beautiful mother, Alice, and your loving sister, Lucie, at last. Rich was a wonderful man and a good Christian believer. I wasn't part of his social circle but we never saw each other when we didn't at least stop and say "hello", "how are you doing"! He made a trip or two with us to the White House Retreat and I even bought a few appliances with his help during his time at Sears. I remember your mother quite well to this day, I don't believe I'm going to forget your father any time soon. You have our prayers and the love and sympathy of many of St. Richard parishioners, past and present. Peg and John Bischof

Our sincerest condolences to the family of Rich. We were next door neighbors for 55 years. Rich's passing leaves us as the only original homeowners on our street. We watched the Haefer children grow up and have great memories. Rich always had a smile and upbeat greeting whenever our paths crossed in recent years. May his memory be a blessing to the entire family.
