To Don & extended family,
So sorry we didn't know about the service in time to attend. You know we love you both very much & have many good fond memories since 1976 when we first rented the house down from you on 38th. I remember lots of good breakfast & dinners together, getting my 1st cocker spaniel @ your house, Dennis stumbling around @ his 1st OU game with you two & so much much more. Even later, as our lives went on in different paths, we still kept in touch through all your moves & ours including seeing Richard (still Dick) to me at the hospital. He was a good human & he will be missed by many but not as much as by you. I know he is now at Peace & watching over you & us with that big smile & singing his heart desires in Heaven. Praying you find peace & comfort in your good memories, support of family & friends. Happy Trails till me we again our friend. Love to you all
