Dear Arlene, Debbie, Chris and Duke, We are saddened to hear of Dick's passing this week. His, "bigger than life," personality will always be remembered...and he will always have a special place in our hearts. All the fond memories we have collected over the years of his stories, his lovely wood crafts and parties around the island. We will miss him dearly. With Christian Love,

Dear Arlene and Debbie.... So sorry for your loss. Dick was a gem... So full of life and love. I will never forget the parties and laughter...especially the 'Blue Smurf'! The Lord has called home an angel who will be deeply missed and forever loved.
