Dick was was kind-hearted, generous, gentle and a thoughtful man who always enjoyed a good laugh and light-hearted humor. Always a pleasure to be with and made you feel better for having enjoyed his company. We will always remember your trips to Winnipeg with Neomie our and visits to Fargo with you.. Remembered with love, Janet
