Nancy Billings from -, AK

"Growing up, I considered the entire Shimman family my own family. Melanie was, and has been, my best friend since I was 3 and she was 2. I have so many wonderful memories of the family and Dick through the years. He was always so kind and so funny! The last time I saw him was at Alyssa’s wedding. I will miss him. Heaven gained another angel. RIP. 💔🙏💔"

"Deepest sympathy for the family."

Marilyn Dvorak from Montgomery, IL

"Loved Dick for being himself saying what was on his mind and not holding back. He was a great guy who will be truly missed by many. I am very lucky to have known Dick at Walker."

Nancy Billings from Westervile, OH

"Margaret was an amazing woman. I remember talking with her around the kitchen table when she would come home from work many times when I’d be visiting with Mel each summer. She was so kind and wise. Margaret was instrumental in steering me into my profession as an RN, like her. She was the one who wrote the letter to Mercy School of Nursing in Toledo, her alma mater, and enabled me to be accepted into the nursing program. I looked up to her every day of my life and was so honored to be a part of their “extended family”. Margaret and Dick will be greatly missed."
