Ahhh Yes, a great opening line from an insightful man with many great lines and jokes. Dick was one of my all time favorites in person and on the phone. I enjoyed every conversation and story to include the moments when he expressed his opinions and emotions. I will miss his support and encouragement. God Bless his wife Pat, an Angel

Hard to put into words all the wonderful moments ...the very happy ones and the sad ones we shared as Families. The Windlass and the Millers will always be a memory kept close to Aurora and Me. How many late nights spent putting together a Commercial. Dick always had the perfect phrase and meaning to put it across. Coffee Clatches at the Miller breakfast table with my best friend and co hort, never to be forgotten.
