My Uncle Dick. I am flooded with memories of his strength, his love, his compassion, his wonderful stories, his boundless humor, his spirited competitiveness, and his generosity of spirit to everyone he encountered. He has left us all a legacy of what it is to be a caring and compassionate physician, a true Christian who practiced what he believed, an innovative and involved member of his community and profession, and a loving, devoted father, husband and ebullient member of a very close knit extended family. How I loved him! My heart is with you all today as we celebrate his glorious life and what he meant to all of us.
