I’m sure he walked into open arms when he made his arrival to heaven. He was always a fun loving easy going guy. And those who knew him loved him . Love you Rest easy Uncle Dickie I love you and will miss you forever

  2. We are going to miss Dick so much. He would visit us most Sundays and when he got ready to leave he would always say “if you need anything I’m just a phone call away”. He was there for us when we needed help and we were so grateful. He was a great brother.
