Ricki, Butch, and Dick, We'll never forget all the good times we had at the Adrian Moose and the cook-outs at Dick's with the Sagebrush Band. There are so many good memories that you'll always have in your heart of both your parents. I know we have only good memories of the times we spent with all of you. Our prayers are with you all. Love, Ellie and Linda

Pappy, it was my pleasure to have been your daughter-in-law and neighbor for over 20 years. My thoughts and prayers are with the loved one you left behind. I saw that love and know you left a void in their hearts. I loved you also and miss you too. Rest in peace.

Ricki, Butch, Dick and families; Some of our best memories when we lived in Michigan were spent with all of you and Pappy and Vranny. We always felt so loved when we would visit and stop in. Pappy had the BEST smile and always looked like he was "up to something." So know that we are keeping you in our hearts and prayers, knowing this is another hard reality, but also knowing that you have such wonderful memories to hold onto.... Judy, Liz and Bettsy
