    Dear Debbie and Ryan, I was so saddened to hear of your loss. I have such wonderful and fun memories of times spent with Dick and you. When I think of my childhood and growing up in Longmont, you all are a big part of those memories. I remember spending time at your home and sharing many laughs and some tears. I also remember so clearly the day you learned that Ryan would be your son, and the hustle and bustle to get ready for him! Thank you for being a loving, faithful, and fun part of my life and all the other lives you all touched. Prayers and love to you both while you grieve the loss of a wonderful man, husband, father and friend. Much love, Susan Kieft Bross

    We were saddened to hear of Dick’s passing. I remember fondly many wonderful times with Dick while we all lived in Longmont, often filled with laughter. When I think back to my high school years in Longmont, I remember Dick as a key part of those years: a good friend and a trusted mentor, someone I always looked up to and respected. A wonderful man and a life well lived. Our condolences and thoughts are with all of his family – Jeff Kieft and Family

    We were so very sorry to hear of Dick’s death. He was a good man showing compassion, love, and humor appropriately. Our family have memories of a lot of good fun with Dick and you, Debbie. I will share some of these with you, Debbie, in an email. May you experience the peace that passes all understanding in the days and months ahead as you adjust to a “new normal in your life”. We know Dick is experiencing that peace now in his “new normal” with the Lord. We all look forward to that day. We love you, Three, Debbie, Ryan, and Patricia.
