My deepest sympathy for your loss. The world was a brighter place because of Dickie. He always made you feel welcome and offered amazing coffee with a smile. I never could understand why Gloria's coffee was never as good as Richards even though it was the same coffee and the same pot. I guess Richard just had that magic touch.
Love and hugs, Janna

My big brother. I already miss talking with Dick...the reminiscing, the sharing of memories, the laughing, his perfectly brewed coffee...oh, and an occasional argument but that's what a brother and sister do. My tears come and go and they will always. I'll miss him forever.
