Terri and Dickie, I just heard about the passing of your son. Words cannot express how sorry I am. I know your heart is broken. May God continue to comfort you. I remember Dickie as a little boy running through the house when I would visit you. He was a brilliant young man. Praying for his family.

Just heard about this. Sad that Dickie has gone so soon, and the world has lost a good one. Played many a soccer game with Dickie, and had many a drink after them with Dickie when I lived in Florida. Always a fun person to have in your team win or loss... He will be missed

There are no words to describe the pain of losing someone you loved, idolized and overall followed around like a puppy my whole childhood. Dickie was like my brother and we were inseparable as children. I will dearly miss my cousin and wish I could take the pain away that he was feeling in his last moments. I mourn the friend and cousin I had and hope you are in peace. I will always love you Dickie.
