Butch, Mosey and Carlene, please accept my sincere sympathy to you and your family on the passing of Dick. I will cherish the many memories of that big teddy bear from years gone by at Lakeside. He, my Mom, Ken Kohn, Ellen Brennan and many others are enjoying scratch handicaps on the perfect golf course!
