I was heart broken to hear of Dick’s passing. He could be a bear when i worked with him at the nursing home, but everyday at the end of his treatment he’d give me a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. He’ll forever has a place in my heart.

Frances and family we are so very sorry for your loss. I just loved Richard as he was so active in the American Legion.  We always had fun at the meetings or functions that we all where at. I know he will be missed. My prayers are with you.
