    Charlene, Cindy and Family, So sorry to hear of your loss. I have know Dick since I was a little girl and I am now 70 years old. He and my Dad, Bill Wheeler, and my Mom, Jack and Waldeen, and others use to run around together . He was such a character, always making everybody laugh. A couple of years ago, he gave me a copy of a picture of him, Jack and Daddy sitting on the couch at your house, all smoking pipes. I wouldn’t take anything for that picture. I don’t guess there was anybody who didn’t know him and everyone liked him. He will always be fondly remembered and missed not only by you but by many, many others. Certainly, you have lots of good memories to carry you through this difficult time. Thinking of you all !

    We are truly sorry to hear of your loss. We really enjoyed being with Mr.Thomas @ the Temple Hill Senior group. We remember his smile and good humor. I especially remember him dancing to the music and I loved it! We first met him when as a young couple we moved to Glasgow 50 yrs. ago. You were blessed and we are too for having known him.
    It seems appropriate to read Psalms 91:15-16 for your father. I hope this is a comfort to you: He shall call upon me, and I will answer him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
