Judy I remember all the fun times we had years ago. Jack always had stories about the things he and Dick did. Like how they would take the train to Chicago to see their Cubs play. Now they can relive those times together again!

Sending my prayers for you, Dan, Ricky and all your family .

Uncle Dick was indeed, by far, my favorite uncle. He always made us laugh. He had the best sense of humor. I wish Dan and Rick a peace knowing his body is at rest. But he is probably making Grandma laugh.
