  2. Dear Kathy and Stacy, Auntie Pat and Uncle Jim, Topper and Carolyn:
    Rick has been in our thoughts and prayers since we heard of his illness – as have all of you. He was such a sensitive and caring man who deeply loved his family. And you are certainly a family to be loved! Cathy and I – and Dad too wish you God’s comfort and healing. May He bless you with vivid memories of Rick and your times together – enough to last until you meet again.

    All our love,
    Bob and Cathy

  3. Dear Kathy Stacey, Carl & Pat and all the Roth Family, our heartfelt sympathy.
    We remember Rick as having a great sense of humor and have fond memories of our times together in our younger days. Our thoughts & prayers go out to all of you.

  4. Dear Kathy:

    I will always remember Rick during our years of growing up next door to each other; of all the fun times we had as kids i.e. snowball fights with the neighbor kids; sitting in the back yard on those Adirondak chairs spitting the cherry pits from his Dad’s tree into the birdbath; riding his doodlebug; and just joking around.

    Rick, I shall miss you.

    My love and prayers are with you Kathy during this time in your life.

  5. Dear Kathy:
    It is with great sadness that we learned the passing of your husband and our dear friend from Kodak, Dick Roth.
    We had many fond memories of the two of you and other Kodak fdriends through the years. We have gotten to know you and your family well. We both had a child named ‘Stacy’. Your’s a girl, our’s a boy!
    Kathy, our hearts and our prayers are with you in this very difficult period in your life. May God bless the Roth family.

  6. I am sorry for your loss, Kathy. It was very nice to meet the wife and daughter of my old childhood friend Ricky. I will keep you in my prayers. My love and prayers go out to all of the Roth family. It was good seeing Pat and Topper again, and nice to meet Missy, Topper’s daughter. I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. – Patty

  7. I worked for Dick at Kodak when he was in charge of the Quality First Supplier Program. He was a great person, and I enjoyed working with him.

    My sympathy goes out to his family.

  8. Kathy, our (Jaime and I) hearts go out to you. I will miss Mr. Roth. He was like a second father to me growing up. I will always remember the way he cared for me when I was around as a kid and as an adult. Please know Jaime and I are praying for you and your family.

  10. Richard and I grew to be good friends in the short time I knew him. We spent most of our time talking about family, politics, and and life in general. He always spoke highly of his wife, God bless her, whom I never had the priviledge of meeting. He looked forward to traveling with her after she retired. I am still in shock and at a loss for words.

    With Great Respect,
    Kurt Schadt
