We shared many memories with your parents... playing cards at their house, officiating football games, sharing their love of you three girls. I will keep you all in my heart as your dad goes to heaven to rejoin your mom. What a glorious reunion that will be!

My Sincere Condolences. Mr Boer will be truly missed. He was one of three men who were instrumental in developing the person I am today; my dad, Coach Stefek & Mr. Boer. He has given me so many memories and lessons that I will pass along to everyone, especially my grandsons. Thank you, Mr. Boer, for being such a wonderful mentor and man whom I truly loved. You are now in the place where you belong. Please say hi to Mrs. Boer for me. Love Always, Doug

Feel like I’ve lost a friend. Really enjoyed getting to know Rich. Thank you for sending this. ??

For close to 9 years I've been proud to call Richard a friend. When we got together, I was always welcomed by a warm smile, and some great stories, and some "wet licks" from his pet Rocky. The world is a far better place for having him in it. You are missed.
