    My condolences to the family on the passing of this wonderful friend, father and husband. I am saddened by our loss of such a bright light in our lives but comforted in knowing “Big Dick” is now in the arms of Jesus Christ. Thanks for all the laughs and memories of our time spent together on the golf course. I will always hear and remember Dicks words after hitting a poor shot saying, “Who are you going to please with that?” Till we meet again, we’ll miss you old buddy.

    Mr. Mueller was always a bright spot in my life and he will be dearly missed. I was so happy to see him whenever I had the opportunity and had moments where I couldn’t stop laughing because of him. I wish for peace and strength for all his family and hope that his unwavering faith in the Lord provides solace. Much love to all and may he rest peacefully in heaven.
