  • My condolences to Delores and the Krueger family. Dick was a great man. My Dad and Mom, Gene and Cecile Carson, cherished their many years at the lake and their friendship with Dick and Delores. Dick and my dad would bring out the guitars and break out in song with Cecile doing the harmonies. The board games, the bonfires, Dick and Gene tinkering with the lawn mowers were all great memories. - Posted by: Gary Carson (friend) on: Jan 03, 2015
