Not sure what to say?

Dick Downing was a great friend and neighbor. Our first week in the neighborhood, our black lab got away from us and ran straight for the open front door, right into his house, through the kitchen and in the living room. I thought we were going to be certain enemies when he then laughed and started talking to our dog. Petted him, asked about him. We knew we had the right neighbors then. When we talked, it was always about our lawns, why we work too much and our dogs. Always with a smile.

Diana-- I was so very sorry to read about Dick's death. You and your family (especially the Prophet) are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Pat MacLean

Dick was a very important person in my life, a great friend and mentor. He was very instrumental in my being who I am today. I will be eternally grateful God put Dick Downing into my life and me into his.

Friends, I was so sorry to hear of Dicks passing. Diana,I taught with you several years ago. Prayers for you and your family.Love.Cheryl Bogo.

So shocked to hear of Dick's passing! We were laughing and joking around together, just a few days ago; like always, as Darlene stated earlier. He was always eager to help you, and I can't recall ever hearing him say a negative thing about anyone. Really going to miss him. My condolences to all of this family.

A finer gentleman there never was. So sorry to hear of his passing. Sending prayers for your family's comfort during this difficult time.

Yes, Diana and family, thank you for sharing Dick with us. I saw him two weeks ago at CE. We laughed and cut up like always. It never mattered how much time lapsed between our visits, we always picked up like it was yesterday. He was a wonderful man and I will miss him. The world was a better place with Richard Lee in it.

We have lost a great man in Dick Downing. Miss having all of the Downing family living right next door to mom and dad. He was always smiling and cracking jokes.
