Mary and family:

May I offer you my sincere sympathy at the passing of Dick. We shared many memories thru high school and our early years of marriage as we both started our families. Our children shared fellowship in their school years. Just as my Bob, who passed on March 9th will never be replaced; he and Dick are now with our blessed Lord and free from the physical trials. May you all be at peace with Dick's passing.
