Dear Dick and Family,

We always think of Dixie chuckling and doing so many nice things for so many people. It makes us smile. "The salt of the earth" truly describes her. We have included a picture taken in the summer of 2006 when we all went to Kauai. So many trips, such lovely memories. You are always in our thoughts and prayers. Peace be with you all.

Much love,

Ken and Lynn

Dear Dick and Family,
We lost a big sister when Dixie left us. We have known you both for 50 years and both of you have been very special people in our lives: facilitating our courtship, godparents to our daughter Julie, and much more. Our prayers will continue for you both.
