I WILL MISS YOU VERY MUCH, BUT I HAVE SO MANY FOND MEMORIES THAT I WILL KEEP CLOSE TO MY HEART. LIKE, GETTING THROWN IN THE PIG PEN, GETTING TICKLED UNTIL I ALMOST PEED MY PANTS AND NO MATTER HOW LONG IT WAS BETWEEN VISITS YOU ALWAYS MADE ME FEEL AT HOME WITH A GOOD TEASING. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL, LOVE YA.

We are going to miss you so very much Dick, but we know that you are no longer suffering. You are probably playing tricks on so many unsuspecting souls right now. What great fun we had growing up! You were a great uncle, the big brother I never had. You were the best. Being able to spend time with you last week was wonderful. I did not want to leave but you were getting so tired. Have fun up there and please don't send too much "funny" snow down here to Georgia! I'll be watching. May your family find solace in knowing that you are at peace and without pain. Karen and kids, remember the great times and his super gift of humor. He will always be with you, making you laugh or smile when you least expect it. That was his way. God bless you and your family. Much love, Bonnie
