Dear Family of Mr. Vick,
I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s promise bring you comfort. There will be “a new earth... and He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore... I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:1-5

Dear Mike and Jennifer and family, I am saddened to learn of your loss. I know how irreplaceable fathers and loved ones are. I will be with my Aunt Zella in Huron so will not be able to attend services. My thoughts and care are with you, Waneen Polly

Condolences to the Vick family from your Aberdeen neighbors, the Hovland family. In addition to being a great neighbor, Dave was Tom's plant manager at the Control Data facility in Aberdeen in the mid 80s. The world needs more neighbors and bosses like Dave Vick. The sideways photo I tried to add commemorates Dave's 80th birthday in 2017, including Mom (Marie Hovland) to Dave's left.
