Thinking of you Donna and family and so saddened to hear of Dick's passing. We have enjoyed knowing him for over 40 years and have always enjoyed whatever story he had to share. We understand how he had such great feelings for Priest Lake and the enjoyment he had with the family at the cabin. We will miss him and know how much you will. We hope so many beautiful memories of Dick will live on forever and help sustain you during this time. He was such a wonderful guy and you were so lucky to have him in your life.
Sending love and prayers,
