I will remember the memories of our visits at Estes Freight Lines when I would visit. You were good to Dad for what you did. You loved and cared and called about Kevin during his cancer diagnosis and treatment. I will never forget that. Enjoy the reunion with those family that have gone on before you, Uncle Dick. May you Rest in Peace.

Dicky loved telling the story of when he took our son Brad up on the mountain above Moma Jane's and Uncle Ben's . Brad was around 8 yrs old and Dicky would tell him the carved out trees is where the indians would get when it rained. They would get on top and holler janice and it would echo all over the mountain.
