Helen and family,
It's sad to hear of Dick's passing, way too soon. Our prayers are with you all. Dick, Jim and I were just kids when June & Bob were married and we have remained close to the Crain family ever since. May you find comfort in you family.

My Mother wrote this to Dick 02/14/1978
So I read this as his First and Last Valentine--
From Helen S. Crain
my Yankee
I've always heard of YANKEE But I've known very few.
And I thank I'm very lucky to have come in touch w/ you.
The feelings that I have for you are very deep inside. My heart is full of love for you w/ tenderness and pride.
I'm proud to be your girlfriend Tho we're different in our ways.
And I hope we share together many happy days.
So let me say this YANKEE You've made this Rebel glad. The Love we shared together is the Greatest love I've ever had. If it should end tomorrow my world would be upturned, but I wouldn't change for anything The love we shared and the things we've learned.
So always be my YANKEE cause I'll always be your girl and we'll always share the kind of Love that makes this a better WORLD.

This is the Valentine's Poem My Mother wrote to Dick on 02/14/1978
My Yankee
I've always heard of "Yankee"
But, I've known very few.
And I'm think I'm awfully lucky
to Have come in touch with you.

The feelings that I have for you
are very deep inside.
My heart is full of love for you
with tenderness and Pride.

I'm proud to be your girlfriend
Tho we're different in our ways
And I hope we share together
Many Happy days.

So let me say this "Yankee"
You've made this Rebel glad.
The Love we've shared together
Is the Greatest love i've ever had.

If it should end tomorrow
My world will be upturned
But, I wouldn't change for anything
the love we shared and
The things we've learned.

So always be my "Yankee"
cause I'll always be your girl
and we'll always share the kind of love
That makes this a better world.
