Guenter so enjoyed talking and eating meals with Richard. I always stopped in and said hi when I would visit Guenter. He was such a kind man and he will be missed.

Sorry to hear of Dicks passing I remember him working at the Apliance store and at RJ Daniels, when he and Elwood delivered an appliance to your home it was setup, leveled and ready for use with a smile, a very pleasant guy to be around
