So sorry to hear of Dick's passing. My mom, Margaret Hord, and I often thought about him fondly. Dick and Dee were her best neighbors while she lived next door to them. I tried to get in touch with Dick when my mom died on Mar. 5, but didn't know where to find him. Whenever I see dahlias I think of Dick!

Dick was a great guy. Friend of our family since the 40's. Dick and Dee were both very gracious people and it was our pleasure to know them. Our condolences to the family.
