    Thank you so much for teaching me how to make your wonderful polish version of stuffed cabbage. We will miss you very much but it’s not a “goodbye” because we’ll be seeing you again. We love you❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Dear Dick and family,
    Such a sad way to re-connect. Was so surprised to see Elaine’s obit in “32963”. Elaine was a wonderful friend. We probably haven’t been together in over 10 years, but have fond memories of visiting Marsha Lane and your later move to Woodfield (near the Mall). We have moved to that area recently and think of you both so fondly when driving by.
    You are in our prayers. With deepest sympathy,
    Alice & Rene
