    I met Dickie when he married a niece. It didn’t take long for our whole family learned that this is a very special guy. He always had s new joke to share, an update on Meagan and Tyler. He was a great friend, a special man. He will be missed greatly since his life connected with a lot of people outside of family as well. A truer friend would be hard to find. Loved him and looked upon him always as family. May he rest in peace. Uncle Ray
