I remember a loving person who cared about my mom. He did what he could for her. I know Dick and Mom had a special connection from when they were young and it carried through both of their lives and journeys. I remember Dick painting moms kitchen cabinets and working on the home on Bay Lake. We had fun times on Bay lake fishing and just horse playing around. I remember when he lost a bait and we had to watch for it in lake while he double back for the lure. I will miss him a lot, his smile and him calling me Brenner. He recently told me how much I look my mom. I really didn’t notice till he said something.

I will always remember Uncle Dick for having that warm smile on his face and a great sense of humor. I’m sad to hear about his passing. My prayers go out to your family.

I love you dad and miss you terribly. We always had such fun together, especially when out at the garage sales. You will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.
