Memories Timeline


  1. I met Dick at the Graystone Hotel in Detroit Lakes; he lived there and I had my office there. I enjoyed our frequent talks immensely. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Lindsey clan with a special thought to Mark, Pat, Lisa, Marcia, Rita and Michael. Best wishes and God Bless. TZ.

  2. Dick was a wonderful man & mentor. He help me see things in a positive light and non-judgmental way.
    He will be deeply missed, but his memory will live on.
