To my always favorite uncle: You were one of a kind and I thank you for all the wonderful and joyful memories. You will be greatly missed, but I am certain that Mom, Joe and our other passed love ones are all the more cheerful that you are now with them to spread your loving cheer. I will miss your smile. I love you … Your Niece Theresa
Even though I haven’t seen you in years I can still hear your voice, hear your laugh, and see your smile. May God’s love and peace be with you as well as your family at this time.
In seeing your recent picture it is amazing to see how much you looked like your sister, my grandmother, Eleanor, as well as my uncle, Mark.
Uncle Dick is fondly remembered as a man to make you laugh and I enjoyed every moment knowing and visiting with him since my childhood. I’ll never forget the week he came to Georgia with Auntie Ellie to spend a week on Lake Lanier in the houseboat. I was only 10 years old at the time, but have lasting memory of that fun week – I learned how to fish! He was thoughtful and caring and genuinely loved his family, and showed me and my sisters compassion and support during very difficult times. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and wish for Aunt Gina to know how much we love you both. My condolences to his children and family and friends as we will miss him dearly.
