All I can say is, THAT SMILE! Dick had a smile that was sure to warm even the hardest hearts! It was an honor caring for you in the short time I did. My heart goes out to the entire family during this most difficult time. Remembering Dick's smile warms my heart as much as one of Linda's beautiful blankets. Prayers to you all❤

Our dad was one of those people who was always part of gatherings with his favorite ones including all or mostly his family. Although he didn’t did need the spotlight, he was always there watching, laughing and by his presence made all of our family functions feel most complete. While he has left a hole in all of our hearts with his passing I know that all of us are the people he hoped we would be as his daughters, son, twelve grandchildren and one amazing great grandson. RIP Daddy until we meet again.
