So sorry to see the news of Dick's passing.  Someone once told me the days are long but the years are short and certainly in a way, it doesn't seem that long ago your family was a part our life.  God bless all of you.

At a time like this, there's so little anyone can say or do... but hope you find some comfort in knowing many heartfelt thoughts are with you and your family
