    Sue and Boys and Family,

    It has been our joy as your neighbors to see your family grow up, while our three girls have done the same. This cycle of life thing is sometimes pretty tough to take. I say that even though I deal with it in medicine all the time.

    Here is what matters. Love. Family.

    Dick was always kind, gentle and thoughtful and fun to speak with. We would sometimes joke about the unpredictable nature of life.

    It was tough to watch him in this final earthly challenge. However, he handled it with grace and steadiness and courage. Three attributes he had that he held throughout.

    I am confident that he is now at peace and that there will be a time in a future dimension of heaven that we do not understand, where we will resume our relationship with him.

    May your grief be tempered by this knowledge and faith in the future as we recall the times of love and family that will last forever.

    Brian R. McMurray

    I will miss you so much Uncle Dick. From your first question always on the phone, Whattar doin’? To your laugh when I finished the whole bag of Cheetos when I stayed a day with you recently. My love for you and memories will keep you alive in my heart. I will cherish our relationship and the special moment we shared when you gave me away when I remarried the love of my life. Life will be less sweet, kind, joyful, and bright just because you’re not in it. Your loving Neice

    Heartfelt condolences to the family and friends during this difficult time. God views death as an enemy, in fact he hates death. He has a longing and a desire to undo and conquer this enemy by means of the resurrection. Please be comforted that very soon, your loved one will hear his name and wake up from his sleep. This promise is recorded for us in John 5:28,29. I’m sorry for your loss.
