Dick was a good, strong, giving, caring, fun and supportive man. He loved his family and was always there for them. I’ll always remember him bringing Judy and family to my wedding in California, what a surprise that was!!
Judy, Bill and I love you and our praying for you and your family. I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you as you were for us when dad and mama died. We are thankful for you and your family. Hugs and Deepest Sympathy.

Judy, I just learned of Dick’s passing. I’m sorry to hear that. I’m sure you’ll be lost without him. You both were good neighbors to my Mom and Dad (Dick & Betty) and even more so after Dad passed away. We’re losing so many in the neighborhood. It seems so sad. Neighborhoods aren’t like they use to be.
I’m praying for you to get through the difficult days. Take care! Hugs to you!
