Dick was one of the finest men I've ever know. He was a wonderful, loving husband, father and grandfather....and to me the best father-in-law possible. There are not enough adjectives to express how honest, considerate, and loving a man he was. I thanked he and Sarah on more than one occasion for setting such a wonderful example for their boys, and raising such wonderful men...Dick, can't wait to see you again.
Dick's passing marked the loss of one more of "The Greatest Generation." They don't make them like that any more. In 1994, the 50th anniversary of his graduation from Edcouch-Elsa High School, Dick brought coffee cups to distribute to those attending. It says "Have a Cup on Me." I always pause when I have my morning coffee from my black and gold cup to say, "Thank you, my friend."
What a great man! He will be missed by many! RIP in Dick
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Ewell and I really liked Dick when you all lived at Buchanan Dam, Texas. My thoughts and prayers are with all of your family. I lost Ewell in 2012. You have my sympathy.
Rick and Family:
Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers! If we can do anything to help you or your mother, please know we are here for you! May God wrap his comforting arms around you and your family during this time. With all our love,
Cheryl and Denny Thompson
My deepest sympathy to all. Uncle Dick was a treasure in my life.
To Sarah and family, I was saddened to hear of Dick's passing, he was one fantastic person and friend. He was always there ready to help in any way. I will always remember him and his great laugh of kindness. My prayers and heartfelt sympathy will be there with you, and I will thank God for allowing me to be a friend..May God be with you and your family through this and always.. Love you, Carolyn Russell
