Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of loss. I have good memories of our families knowing one another from the neighborhood.

Mr and Mrs Tyke Delp

My deepest sympathy to you, Dick, Angie, and Jason. What wonderful memories I have of first meeting Carol and Angie when they came to church with Penny Biecher. And, who could forget all our gatherings in your basement with Carol's famous ice tea, and cranberry bread; not to mention all our shopping sprees to the candle shops. She was a wonderful woman, and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Gone is the childhood laughter we shared in school,
