  4. Laurel Rabjohns condolence:

    Dick was my Godfather and his presence along with his family’s was in my life from the time I can remember. He brought me a silk kimono set from Korea where he served during the Korean War (which I still have). We enjoyed his presence at all the important events of our lives and in later years, his spiritual gifts were always evident at our family reunions. We wish you sweet memories to hold you close during these times of sadness. Love and peace to all of you,
    Eric and Laurel Rabjohns
