We just heard few days ago about Dick. We are so sorry to hear the news. He was our pastor at New Prospect Baptist Church in Saluda Indiana in the 70s. We had the pleasure of him marrying us in 1974. We enjoyed the time Dick ,Wilma and Jonathan was with us.

He was a wonderful man and helped me learn about my faith and my Lord.

It happened at Westpoint Baptist Church Camp in the late
'60s, early '70. I remember our conversation like it was yesterday.

I couldn't understand how the Father, Son and Holy Spirit was One. He said it was like an egg. The egg shell=Father; the yolk=Son; and the egg whites=Holy Spirit. All three are separate yet one. WOW - I got it!

Thank you Dick for sharing you life serving the Lord.

Blessing to all - peace
