    I have always admired Men that have come before me for their wisdom and expierences. Dick told me those China men were pretty good fighters. What a Warrior, What a Great American.

    Our first meeting was the buying of your baby bed you had for sale from your driveway. What a lucky day it was talking to you. You no longer needed it and I was just beginning my grandparent journey. You were there when Arvilla and I were looking for her forever home. I’m glad you stopped us to mention a possible purchase of the house next door to you. We had looked at the house, but you put us in contact with Monica, the owner. She loves her house and loves you and Joan. Thanks for always being a friend to all, and know I always enjoyed talking to you on my way into and out of the neighborhood. You are already greatly missed. See you again, Dick!

    Always a gracious and somewhat mischievous smile when we got to chat in the favorite cul-du-sac of HR. We drove thru there this week, but you were gone. You were not there. WE looked everywhere, but you were not there to greet us as always. You are now in the arms of the Man who has helped you to give us all a better look at life. Your did guide us to such amazing stories of you and Joan. We will look out for her until......
    missing you BFF,
