To the Miller Family,

Dick was a good friend of the Krueger family from Mankato. We always had a good time with Dick and Bev at family get-togethers whether at the lake camping, fishing, playing cards, or at the lanes. We have fond memories of our time together.

Deepest Sympathies,

Jeff and Jackie
