My uncle Dick gave me a lot of attention when I was a young boy, before he had a family of his own to tend to. One thing he did was buy me a $25 savings bond every Christmas. An odd gift for a boy, but I loved it. It taught me the value of saving and soon I was buying stamps at school to buy my own savings bonds. He let me drive, yes drive his Scorpion snowmobile when I was only 5 or 6 years old, how I enjoyed that feeling! When I was about 8 years old he bought me a plate of my oysters at the Constableville Fireman's Field Days. That was a rare treat for me back in those days. I also remember when my grandfather, Robert Leroy Crofoot, Dicks father, passed away in 1973. Dick gently and quietly offered comfort to my very sad heart.
Dick made special investments in my young life that helped me feel valued and important. Passing that along to a young person in your circle of influence would be a fitting tribute to Dick.

My sympathy to the family.  The Miller's will miss you.  Maybe you will see your buddy Jim again.  Dick was a special person to my husband and myself.

Colleen and Raeann, I enjoyed every moment I spent with your dad. What a great guy. I will miss watching sports with him even the golf channel which I have actually learned to like. No words can express how sorry I am about your dad’s passing. I know he loved you girls and his granddaughters deeply. He will definitely be missed. I’m always here if you need anything.

Dear Raeann, Colleen and family....So sorry to hear of your dad's passing.  I don't need to tell you that he was a great man. I have very fond memories of him especially of him adoring you girls....both of you were the light of his life.  I will always treasure the many wonderful conversations that we used to have.  My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time of grieving.  Love you both...."Aunt" June

Raeann & Colleen...The obituary tribute to your Dad was most touching.  Many of the attributes you attributed to him, I know first hand, you two have exemplified in your lives...compassion being one of these traits you both inherited.  May the time between painful memory and joyous recall of your Dad be short-lived. Thoughts & Prayers...Anita Ranado
