    Uncle Dick made a positive impact on everyone who was blassed to know him. His legacy will live on through so many, but none will ever compare to him.

    Josh and family,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of your grandpa. I never knew him but from reading his obituary he sounds like quite a guy and I know his passing will leave a big hole in your family. Spend time telling stories and laughing with your family and his friends. You will slowly heal and your grandpa will always be a big part of who you are.
    Thinking of you.

    We did not have the pleasure of knowing Mr. Dick Lippold. That was our loss, but we know that he produced a great lady and wonderful daughter in Ina Jo. We do have the pleasure of knowing her and we pray for her and the rest of the family during this time of loss.
