I will miss you greatly, Uncle Dick. I remember the trips to Union City as a child, the Thanksgiving visits to the pharmacy for ice cream desserts, attending the Indy 500s, visiting in Arizona, and most recently, lunches with you, Aunt Betty, and Dad at the care facility. Now you, Aunt Jean, and Pam call all visit again. Godspeed Mr. Wonderful!
