Dear Brenda, Lori, James and Family— deepest condolences and love from your Minnesota Family

Lori sent me a note advising of Dick’s passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dick will be GREATLY missed by our whole family AND everyone on our street.

At one time, Dick was caring for the lawns of EVERY home on our street! During that time, our lawns ALL looked so AMAZING, and it was ALL because of Dick. He worked SUPER hard and did an incredible job. When Dick retired, we all got together and had a party for him. Thank you, Dick! We all still talk about you with great fondness!

Dick also loved our West Highland White Terrier, “Bones”. Bones was a peculiar dog, but he LOVED Dick and would work himself into a frenzy whenever Dick was around. We send our condolences to Dick’s entire family. We are so very very sorry for your great loss.

Yuri, Mike and Janelle Naegele
