    Dear family and friends, please accept my deepest condolences. May God's promises found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29 bring you comfort during this difficult time.

    Mr. Dickerhoof was one of the kindest Dads I knew. How many Dads would let there little girl have their prized possession? I remember that little red Saturn coupe well. It was cool for 1992 and I was always envious of such a wonderful relationship Hope shared with her Dad. That's only a minor example of how sorely he'll be missed. To a kind father, grandfather and friend.
