Marlene, Kathy told me long ago that Dick used to ride her on his bicycle all over town and how much fun it was. I bet they are laughing and giggling way too much now.
We love you all.

Dawn, Marlene and Dan - I'm saddened at the news about Dick. He was a wonderful man who loved his family and all that life had to offer. I remember him trying to keep Dawn and I straight in high school and the time he and my Dad spent together. Heaven has yet another Angel and I know he's looking over you all. He's with you still. God Bless. Love, Jan DeBaugh
