I am sorry for your loss..I have been sick..my prayers are with all of you..Robin Lawson Fellows

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I am sorry for the loss of such a wonderful man. He will always be remembered. My brother (Bobby)sends his prayers and love to you all.

I found out to late to come to the funeral but would love to get a phone number so I can call Shannon or Tammy.

Ann, I'll never forget Dickie, seemed he was always messing with a car or at the lake, skiing. He tried hard to get me up on skis, but I never made it...jumped off that cliff though! He was always a friend & will be missed. Ann, you & your family are in our prayers.

Once you got past that deep voice you found that Dickie was a great guy...
His very generous ways and funny. When I came to Swannanoa in the 7th grade one of the first things I heard about was "Dickie Raines"..When I think about Dickie, I think about how he always had a Hot Rod.. And the first thing he did when he bought a car was primer it. Everybody new Dickie Raines...And Everybody will miss him...

To Ann:Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, we are so sorry for your loss.
Eddie has many good memories of the time he and Dickie shared as young guys growing up. He will be missed by many people whose lives he touched through the years.
Brenda and Eddie Moseman

Dear Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you through this difficult time.
