Dick was good such a cheerful and caring person. We first got to know him at Rolling Acres and he helped us care for our property at home for several years. It was always a delight to run in to him out in the community. He really knew how to make a person feel special. Our deepest sympathy to Darlene and his family.

Dear Darlene and family,

Dick was such a hardworking and loving individual. He was always a huge help for my mother Mary Hull in all things outside. Without his dedication to help my mother my job would of been a lot tougher. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful man.

Dear Darlene and family,
Dick was the happiest and friendliest gentleman on our Rolling Acres staff. He made everyone feel important and appreciated. Without Dick our outdoor learning area and frog pond would have never survived. He attended to every detail and treated our school like his own home. Hugs to you all and thanks for sharing Dick with us. Fondly, Nancy Cook
