The sad news that Dick, as we called him in school, has passed on came as an enormous shock, particularly because he always seemed to be the personification of life and liveliness to all who knew him.
Dick was friendly, kind and fair to everyone, intelligent, talented and humorous---a natural, spontaneous entertainer and a cherished friend.
I can't recall ever having heard a harsh word uttered by him about another person or by anyone else about him; he seemed universally liked and his presence always welcome.
May the Lorenzana family and his many friends find the strength and courage to cope with their terrible loss and somehow find comfort in their memories of the many happy moments they shared with him.
With deeply felt condolences,
