Aunt Anelda,

While we are saddened to learn of the passing of our dear Uncle Dick, we are especially thankful of seeing him and you at Momís recent birthday celebration. The memories we have of him are so vivid, it seems as if they happened yesterday. From the photography to the trains and airplanes, he was an active hobbyist and loving and caring uncle. We will keep you, Rose, Ed, Carl, and their families in our thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks. Godspeed Uncle Dick, enjoy your Heavenly Rewards! We will always treasure our fond memories of you.

Stephen, Julie, Joseph W. and Thomas D. Ledergerber
