Dear Dickie, you were the first person to see me when I was born and an Uncle to me from the start. You were always around and having so much fun. Too much fun I dare say ;) You truly were one of kind marching to your own beat! My memories of you are filled with Gorillas in Parades, Downtown Christmas Eve's and National Street Rod events to name just a few! You have been a part of my entire life! Thank you for my lovely nickname that you and dad enjoyed giving me. Little Emo will always live on and I will always be able to hear your voice saying my name! You were our family and we loved you! I can only hope Heaven has a Hot Rod Alley for you to smoke your tires on! All my love, Little Emo (Kimberly Anderson Marrin)

Dickie, what a ride we have had these last 30 years. Never dreamt I would have such a brilliant, loyal, loving partner-in-crime. The many memories I have will help take away the tears, but you will forever be missed. Good bye my friend. I love you.
