I'm so glad I was able to spend the time with Dick this past summer in his woodwork shop. He was a great friend and mentor and will be so greatly missed by all that knew him! Again if there is anything at all that you and Nicole would need please don't ever hesitate to call or ask me. My prayers and thoughts are with you and all the family. Love you my friend.|
