I rember when dick would pick up and take me to a meetng on his mototcycle, I would set on back and he would tell me to put my arms around him so I won't fall off. I told him I would rather fall off. He would laugh and make me laugh. God Bless Buddie Richie D

It breaks my heart to hear that Dick has passed away. Great man. Great family. Great kids. During my time on the east coast, Dick and family became my "east coast family". Not sure I would've made it without them. Thanks Lois. Thanks Dick. RIP.
