Aunt Mary Lee and all my cousins Richard, Debbie, Rusty, Carol, And Cindy. We are so sorry for your loss. I know Uncle Dick is at peace and is a angle watching over everyone. I will always remember how he loved to cook Sunday breakfast and he made pancakes the size of the plate. I pray that you all find comfort in remembering the good times and knowing he is free of pain and suffering.

Love Susette and Ray

Mary Lee; We are here if you need us.  We will always remember the good times.  I picked a little poem for Amy and will share with you now (it was in her Memory Card):

 When I came to the end of the road
 And the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room, Why cry for a soul set free.

 Miss me a little...but not too long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love that we once shared, Miss me but Let me go.
For this is a journey that we all must take, and each must go it alone.
It's all a part of the Master's Plan, A step on the road to home.

 When you are lonely and sick of heart Go to the friends we know, and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds, Miss me but let me go.

Dick's soul is free of pain and suffering.  God Bless you and your family.

Jim, Linda and family.

Growing up dad and mom would always put us kids in the car go visit family in Maryland and Pottstown. Some Saturday's go to the VFW in Frankinville and hang out, on some Sunday's dad would start making home made bread, as soon as we came home from church. Dad drove truck over the road for a living, so when he came home on an early Sunday morning dad had breakfast made every morning, from the time we were little kids up til we had his grandkids. This man never asked for one thing, the only thing he wanted was for his wife and kids and grandkids and great grandkids to be happy. Because when they were happy he was happy. He was a hard worker. Thank you daddy for showing me the ethic's of a hard worker. I hope I have made you happy over the years. I am going to miss you, Happy Birthday I LOVE YOU

My PopPop loves driving trucks and seeing his grandkids. He always had a mind of his own. He loved playing tricks on his grandkids. I can remember all of the times that he watched his cowboy showed everytime I walked into the living room. He would take me to school and tell me to follow the rules and do the right thing. I'm gonna miss him so much. I love you PopPop and Happy Birthday
