Dick and Nadine taught my friend, Gay, and me how to play Hand & Foot. I am still playing today. We spent hours playing and visiting. We later visited them in Branson where they really showed their hospitality. We will miss Dick but know he is home in God’s heavenly kingdom.

Was an honor to share some time with this man before his passing. He had some good stories and he really enjoyed his family and retirement. I will miss watching the cooking channel with him. Thank you...
