Dear Pat & family,
I was so shocked to read of your loss. I just ran into Dick less than a month ago & we had such a nice talk. We joked about your "celebrity status" with Spencer on TV----so like Dick!
I have fond memories of good ole days at the Elks & the fact that Dick sold us our first house. I always enjoyed running into you two & just saying hi!
My prayers are with your family and hopefully years of wonderful memories will bring smiles to your faces & keep him alive in your hearts forever.
With sincere sympathy,
Cindy Baker Yount

Pat & Family,
So sorry for your loss. I first met Dick when I was a sales rep for Philip Morris and he was with Kellogg's. Always enjoyed meeting him in the stores we called on and talking JMU sports. Then later at Shenandoah Valley Athletic Club events. I will miss him.
May God Bless,
Allen Andrick
