To Aunt Lucille and the Family of Uncle Dick, especially, Sandy, Rich, Ron, Sherry & Sonya. My life is enriched by family and the members of your family are an important part of a circle of love that is a blessing to me. The memories of a childhood lived among loving family members is a priceless treasure; the memory of Uncle Dick frying fish, playing cards, along with the laughter of good times is not taken for granted. God bless you as you recall the good days and anticipate the days when we will all rejoice together in God's kingdom.
