Condolence & Memory Journal

My deepest sympathy to Dick's family, especially his wife, children, and Terri, his sister. Dick and I would be cousins: my mother was sister to Dick's Dad, Paul. We had many memories of times when Dick's Dad and Mother made the trip to PA, especially when our grandmother Mabel Bock was living. This incident sounds like a tragedy and I am so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Carolyn Eshelman Irwin

"Dickie" was my first cousin. I am one of the few people left who still called him "Dickie". I remember him so well as a small child who loved out "Pappap" so much, and I also remember his huge bear-hugs as an adult. I am devastated by his death. I hadn't seen him for quite a while, and I had been
thinking about him a lot. I am so sorry that I am unable to attend the services for him on Saturday.

My heart is broken for you! I cannot imagine the level of your pain. Only God! Only God!
Richard, was a very gracious and gentle man. In working at Northwood Academy, he was always there when I needed him and would do anything to help. He was quiet but always had a smile. I'm thankful for the time I was able to work with him.
