Dear Cherie and Family
It was heartbreaking to receive the news of Dicks passing. Dick was one of those rare people with such a positive attitude and a mentor and friend to me from the first time we met. You both are included in our treasures and special friendships. The great people are remembered by what they have done , the Special ones by how much they are missed. Our deepest sympathies to you and yours

Uncle Dick was always so kind to me. My memories are good ones. He always showed me around and took me for rides in his old car. He would push me on the tree swing and actually listen to me when I talked, and talked and talked LOL.
He will be missed.
May he rest in peace. All my love,
