  1. My thoughts are with you and your family. I wish I could make it,but I am unable to attend.

  2. Sending condolences and comfort to Richard, MeLissa, and the whole family as you grieve your loss.

  3. Aunt Helen and RG, the picture of Uncle Dick with Landon, Gabe, Patrick, and Braeden on the John Deere, according to Corey, was the same day that he told and showed the boys and other kids there that he eats ‘SPIDERS’. The kids still remember and talk about it. I wish I had known that during the service because I would have told that story. Uncle Dick was a lot of fun, a joy to be around, and will be missed by all.
    I hope this story puts a smile on your faces…Love Pam

  4. Helen and RG, I am so sorry for your loss. Saying god bye is never easy. Instead it is truly until we meat again. May the memories bring you comfort. You are in my prayers.
