We have so many good memories of Dick from years past. He had a passion for softball and shared it with many girls in the surrounding area, including our daughter. Hopefully your happy memories with your father/grandfather will help you through the months ahead. We were very fond of Dick. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
