God chooses our parents
with purposeful reasons,
To grow and mature
through all of life's seasons.

Through storms and rain
and the sunshine above,
My dad you will always be
carried in my heart with love.

Love always,

"Sugar" Boker

This man was the salt of the earth. He was kind, generous, hard-working and loving. I will always cherish the times we shared and the countless friends we shared that time with as well. I was the lucky lady to have felt his love and respect. Yes, he was "a little bit of outlaw and a little bit of Jesus" and I will miss him beyond words.

Rich was a great guy! We were so glad he worked with us on the farm! He started his tractor up at 4:00am! And he worked all day! Plus, if it snowed... your driveway was cleared so you could go to work :) He always had a minute to talk to me and get a kiss in the cheek. He had a great smile and great work ethic! We know he loved his Family because he would share with us and you could hear how proud he was of you, in his voice! We are going to miss Rich ... but, if heaven has a tractor and a
field to work... we know who is doing it! And... keep those rows straight! You are already missed!
Love, Paul and Pam
