My prayers are with my friend John, the Lundquist family, their extended family, friends of the family and Richard, whom Ive known during the better part of my life. I revere him as a God loving man, kind & generous to me when I was a younger. I cherish the memories of breaking bread at his home many times, and the fellowship we had through the years. He was blessed in many ways and will be missed by all.

Our prayers are for Barb and the family during this time. Dick was a part of my life hanging around Phil, Mark, John and Laura. Many good times at the Lundquist home and Dick was there taking it all in in his quiet way.
