Although I only just met Dick and Joan in 2013, they were dear friends to me through the VFW. Dick always had a joke or two, and Joan always had the "eye roll" to follow!!!
Duck had a heart of gold. We know he will be missed terribly by Joan and all the family, as well as his friends.
Love, Amy and John Ruth
