As I approach my 76th birthday I began looking back on my days growing up in Detroit, MI. I was thinking about Richard "Dickie" Belcher and decided to "google" his name. That's when I learned of his passing. I remember when Dickie used to pay summer visits to his relative, Mrs. Ellen Atkinson, who lived next door to me on 22nd Street. We all thought Dickie was "way cool" because he lived in New York, always dressed sharp and listened to jazz on Mrs. Atkinson's record player. After I married and moved away I was told that Dickie was going to be a doctor. I am very happy to see that he was very successful as a doctor and had a beautiful family. The 22nd Street neighborhood is long gone but the memories remain.
Dr. Belcher, thinking about you today and fondly remembering the exceptional doctor and human being you were. Twenty six years ago in about twelve hours you performed one of your many miracles. Thank you.
Lieber Dick, so haben wir Dich in Heidelberg damals genannt - 1967. Eben, im Gespräch mit meiner Tochter über alte Freunde in Heidelberg, warst Du ganz lebendig in meiner Erinnerung. Im Internet haben wir Dich gesucht und auch gefunden - Du, lieber Dick, lebst nicht mehr, zu meiner Traurigkeit. Wie schnell kann das Leben sein.
