Like playing football with you in high school. Your '51 Pontiac and my '51 Mercury. Starting out as good old farm boys. Thank you for the memories "Clarence". Love ya like a brother. I'll meet you on the other side.

Dick ,Gary Myself and many friends that grew up in the good old days , and enjoyed our friendship stuck together thru out the 60's as we played Fast Pitch softball all over the country and went on to win several local championship's our times together the after game with good cold beer !! I was honored to be in Dick and Faye's wedding and continued communication after they left the area as Dick changed jobs ,His move to Pennsylvania we talked on the phone or by email Dick was not a social media guru ? I tried to get him to get with it but I guess he was worried someone might wanted to be him/LOL His visit to my house was a pleasure to reflect on things he was impressed with the scrap book I kept , to remember the good times.. He told me a few times about his cancer but again very little always playing the down the serious results , Faye and Jenn( sorry I never had the oppertunity to meet you and Dick's grandson ) I am on face book if you ever want to contact me! I would like that. I will miss you Dick Jones!!Jonesy!! Tv bobbyd

I remember having coffee and M and Ms together with Faye and Dick. Watching the movie What’s about Bob ? I remember Dicks smile and his pleasant attitude. He was a special friend.
