Dear Steffens Family and Joan,
It is with shock and tears from what we have just learned about our dear friend, Dick. What a great loss his departure has made to us all here on earth, but what a grand, glorious entrance he must have made into Heaven in the arms of our Dear Lord Jesus Christ. I'm positive Dick had a few jokes to share with God himself!
Dick....we will remember you with GREAT fondness all the days of our life. You were a true friend inside and out ,and there's nothing you wouldn't do for anyone.
I'll always be ever so thankful to you for your help in moving us from Cicero, Illinois to Gilbert, Arizona back in 1993. Just do me a favor....if they have motorized vehicles in Heaven, please don't run out of gas as you did on the turnpike! No need to worry, though....I KNOW you're fluttering around on angel's wings.
May God hold you close in his tender arms, Dick. Until we meet again, we will miss you tremendously.
Lin Gilbert-Piest & Terry,Along with Heather, Frank, Kristy, Cole and Jeff
