Dick had been in ill health for a long time. Now he is at peace (and so is Jo). Wishing the best for Jo in the days and years to come. Many many homeless people enjoyed the thousands of home made cookies that Jo baked for the Hope Rescue Mission, and Dick served to them, after eating a few himself.
Now that Dick is there, there will be no squirrels in heaven. Just beautiful birds and beautiful memories.

I wanted to express my deepest condolences to your family on Richards passing. Part of my extended family I never met. I knew of him only because of our shared name. Hopefully we can meet some day and share life’s stories. Once again my deepest sympathies.

We were saddened to hear that Mr. Borror had passed. He and his wife were always so active and supportive in following their grand children's school and athletic functions and always so gracious to our kids. We will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers. The Lichnerowicz family

To one of the nicest men I had the pleasure of meeting and playing golf with. Unfortunately I have been laid up and had not heard or seen this until now. My wife and I offer our deepest condolences.
