What an incredible legacy you leave us with and you make us tremendously proud. I remember Uncle Dick you working long hours and that you could fall asleep at the drop of a hat when it was almost time for you to go back on the road. Either you were so exhausted, or you had so much peace in your heart, or possibly both. Despite your hectic schedule, you made time to take all us kids out camping or play with us out in the yard. You are a great Christian man, who had evangelistic tracks or smile cards printed out to help anyone who may have crossed your path. My dad lost his father early and he looked up to you as his special mentor but also his best friend: your words were like gold to him - if JR said it was true it was the gospel truth and nothing else mattered. How fortunate I have been to have such a wonderful uncle and mentor, and I look forward to meeting up with you again in heaven, seeing that smiling face once again, when my time comes to be with the Lord.
