I truly appreciated having Dick work for us and getting to know him. The one conversation that I'll always remember having with him is when he told me that he was a born again believer. One day I'll be able to see and talk with him again!

Sandy, I was saddened to see the passing of Dick. I met Dick back in the early 70s. I met you also a while back at the Lower Allen VFW. Dick was a wonderful compassionate man. We all are better people for having known Dick and his giving ways. May your memories of Dick help you through this difficult time. He is now in his heavenly home and riding horses with no pain. Gods Blessings and prayers.. Deanna (Wise) Morrison

Hi Sandy, this is 'Bill Carlisle' saying I am so sorry to hear about Dicks passing and the 12 yeasr struggle he and you had to endure with this Devil of 'Cancer' taking so many lives of our William Penn Grads...

Not sure if you remember I and Ken Blackburn were at the Bar B Cottage night before the 'Class of '60 Reunion', later he and I went downtown Harrisburg to the Spot and bumped into you and Dick... If I heard correctly you and Dick celebrated your 30th Anniversary Sandy.

Again Sandy, so sorry to hear about Dick, what a great guy he was...
Bill Carlisle, Wm. Penn High School Class of '60...
