I just learned of Richard’s passing and wanted to express my condolences to the family. He will be greatly missed. There will never be another Dickey! On Halloween he would sit on our porch so he could see all the kids tricker treating. One time he went in to the house and put on my coat and scarf. He went out the back door and came around to the front and tried scaring us! He was so funny and full of mischief!
