Memories

Dear Mrs. Hagel and family, Whenever I met Dick in the hallways of school or church he always greeted me with a smile, a handshake (always with a firm grip, and a kind word. You felt as if you were a member of a special group of people. A group of people he called his friends. He made you feel welcomed, warm and important. He and Marian have passed their warmth onto their children and to their grandchildren. The world is a better place for having had Dick a part of it. We will miss him, but know that he lives on in all of us who have had the pleasure of knowing him, even for a short while. Blessings, Jen Niebuhr

To Marian, Becky, and all of Dicks family; my thoughts and prayers are with you as I read of Dicks passing. I do not get to Faribault as often as I would like, so will be unable to come the visitation or funeral. I know Trinity will be missing one of its most able members and volunteers. David Fiebiger
