I will always remember Dick’s wonderful sense of humor and his beautiful smile. He was a very special man, a great Dad, and a faithful and loving husband. He will be missed but May you find comfort in knowing he is at peace and free from suffering. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love and Hugs!
What ever was going on, and there was always a lot going on.. Uncle Dick as I recall, would always find time to join in the fun of everything that was happening, both with the adults and us kids.
We were Blessed in so many ways.
And Aunt Bud, I so often recall the time you and Uncle Dick were visiting us in Walpole NH. I was only around 5 years old if I remember correctly.. I remember walking down the long expansive lawn under the huge trees and you taught me the words and song of 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' as we walked. Its a memory I will never forget.
with much warmth,
Loved Dick's sense of humor and I greatly appreciated all the help he gave me after Ed's passing. He will be missed.
We are so very saddened to hear of Dick's passing! Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Fun memories of times in Contoocook and Peacham will stay with us forever. Love Guy, Sandy and family
