We are so thankful we have been able to spend time with Uncle Dick the last few years we have visited Cincinnati. Having seen him just four weeks ago is even more meaningful. We will miss seeing his quiet gentle smile but it will always be a special memory. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Lynn, Jim and I were so sorry to hear of the passing of your father. He lived a very long life but like my mom, its never long enough for us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Our thoughts and love to all the Torbeck clan. Many wonderful memories of “Uncle Dick”. Sharon and I are sorry we can’t be there to celebrate Dick’s life but he will be in our prayers along with all our cousins.
My deepest sympathy for you all. So grateful that he and mom visited so recently. Hard to lose a father no matter what age. Thinking of you all with love, prayers and compassion.
