"So sorry for your loss, Ms. Jarboe you have been through a long ride the past few years and you have survived. Keep up your faith, your head held high and everything will work out may not be the way we want but it will work out nonetheless. The Mac Nees family will have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers you are an amazing person who will conquer all. With our deepest love and sympathy may you go on your way no matter where it leads you. Love Always The Mac Nees Family"
Vickie MacNees | Beloit, WI
"Mike and I can't express our sadness of your loss. I always enjoyed yours and Dicks conversations, never sure just how much was serious or bantering, but you two kept us in stitches. I can only think that Kelly may be there trying to convince Dick to take an alternate gate entrance. She most likely has not forgotten the prank he pulled on her when she was about 6 or 8 years old. Hope he'll go easy on her and plays along till the last minute. He was a great man and you were the Love of his Life! Love you Sister/Cuz. "

"Dear Dickie was a fun, rambunctious 1st Cousin whom I enjoyed when our Family would drive down to ARK and see all our Kinfolk when I was young. To have been with him again a year before he passed, I still found that aura of playing games and trying to catch me off-guard and then laugh about it! What a sport and great Dad, and friend to so many. Cousin Janet"
Janet Schlosser McNulty Yahna | Fort Collins, CO
" Dick was a source of love for his family, a place of warmth on a cold night, a friendly haven to the weary and a sanctuary of peace in the swirling midst of anguish. Above all, Dick reflected the kindness of his heart. Now the great sorrows of life are over. Dick has laboriously accomplished his earthly tasks. Go to rest in peace."
Vicki Jones | Walnut Ridge, AR
"Dick is greatly missed. I enjoyed each and every day working with him, even the days that seemed to be endless phone calls, appointments and grumpy people. He really was like "working for your daddy". You all are in my thoughts and prayers. "
Kristi Pate | Walnut Ridge, AR
"Jane - I wish I could have known Dick because he sounds like such a "one in a million" person. I DO know that he had excellent taste in women because he married you! Our prayers and thoughts are with you. I have found that I was able to recall so many wonderful memories after mom died - I know that your memories, your love for each other, and the grace of God will help you through these difficult times. Love, Ann

"I was a young police officer in Walnut Ridge when I first met Dick. I enjoyed watching him in the courtroom during the time he was serving as our deputy prosecutor but soon learn to dread seeing him enter the courtroom as a defense attorney. But no matter what the outcome of our courtroom battles Dick & I always remained good friends. I loved his sense of humor and enjoyed my trips to his law office and my visits with him & Mr. Ponder. Oh, the tales that were told. He was always there for me as an attorney, an adviser & a friend. Our sincere condolences go out to the Jarboe family. Deb & I will miss him. "

"I have been privileged to have been associated with this family for 20 pluse years. I got to babysit with their precious boys and they treated me and my family as if we were their own family members. I highly respect Mr Jarbo. I call him Mr Jarbo because even though most of the time I called him "Dick" he was such an impressive kind hearted man that Mr. Jarbo is a way I showed him the respect and love I had for him. Many times he was at his office when I would clean his office. He always took the time to talk with me and ask about my family. I understood when he had to let me go from cleaning his office but the friendship remained. I will always rememember him and Richard with much love. Jane you will never knew how special you made us feel when you would bring Richard to our humble home to visit cause he wanted to see us I love you all so much. I will always be here if you need me. I know you have closer friends but in my heart your family will always be close to me and special.I will miss Dick and his jolly sence of humor. Praying for peace and strengh for you all. With much love and deep sympathy

"Dick was a fine man who was a pleasure to work with as a lawyer. He had that great balance of fully representing his cient while maintaining his status as a gentleman. He was always courteous to all involved in a case, his word was good, and you could depend on him. I will not be able to attend the services, but you have my prayers and hope that the fond memories will override the pain of the last year. Be blessed,
Bobby McDaniel, Attorney

"Dick was a wonderful man and tremendous mentor to many young attorneys including myself. I will forever be grateful for his friendship and wise counsel. His family, community and colleagues have lost a great friend and I hold you all up in prayer. "
Chad R. Oldham | Jonesboro , AR
"Dick Jarboe was a fine man and extremely capable attorney. He was always kind to young lawyers and offered advice or assistance whenever he could. When following behind older lawyers, there are those you like, those you respect and admire, and those you trust. It is rare to find all those traits present in one person ....but Dick had them all. I, among many, will miss him very much."
Mary Broadaway | Paragould, AR
"Dick was a fantastic lawyer, but an even better person. He represented his clients with great passion and diligence. He was a gentleman and and treated everyone fairly. He will be missed."
Ray Nickle | Jonesboro, AR
"I haven't seen much of Dick since high school (back then I was Nicky and he was Dicky), but we spent 12 years in school together, so we knew one another pretty well, especially in our "formative" years. I had few surprises in reading Dick's obituary, as those of us who grew up with him would not have expected anything less. I know Dick will be missed greatly by all, and I want to extend my condolences to Dick's family and friends.
Nick (Nathan) Goldstein | Amarillo, TX

Resa Crews Bolin | Batesville , AR
"Dick was a remarkable lawyer that we at Lawrence County Cooperative School, Inc. respected highly. We could always call on him for advise or whatever else we may have going on. We always appreciated having that relationship with him. He was just a genuine courteous man. We will miss him! Our prayers will be with you and your family."
Lisa Williams | Walnut Ridge, AR
"Today, I just happened to google Dick because I had not heard from him in years. I was shocked and saddened to see that he had passed.
