My Darling Brother,
I can't believe the years we shared growing up will be gone - you suffered so very much, and you were so brave. We never had a fight, always said “I Love You” when we left. Mother taught us four to always love each other, and we do. The years you spent living in Cape Cod were happy years for you, with the opening of your Archery Shop, you were so excited. I lit a little Christmas Tree for you, and will keep it lit till your birthday February 22, 2015. Tell Mom and Dad, Brother Bill and little James, that Howard and I will be along one of these days when the Lord calls us home too.
Merry Christmas - with all my love, Sis
Dick you will be missed very much. It was a pleasure knowing you and your family. I know you are in a better place. You can do all the deer hunting you want. I also know you are watching over your family and guiding them in the right way. - Dave
