You are in my every thought!

Oh Opa, Thank you for the dream the other night, I needed that. I will never get over how easy you made it to love you, and that will never stop. Fisher and Jessa talk about you all the time and Jessa asked me yesterday if she could have her "own" picture of you. My heart aches so bad it hurts, but we will hug again someday, I know it!

Dick was my cousin and Jerry and him would come by the house and toss me back and forth like a basket ball. As you can imagine he was older than me. He was great. I will miss him very much. I always enjoyed talking with him and the e-mails that he sent on a regular bases. My thoughts and prayers are with Lilo and children. Love Roberta Blevins Barton(Bobbii1968@sbcglobal.net)

He was my Opa and always made me feel comfortable in his home and part of his family. I will always carry a part of his personality with me as a model of care toward others. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
