Dear Chrissy, Joe, Mike and all your loved ones:
I hope you do receive my deepest and most sincere condoleances for your papa's passing. I do keep tucked away in my heart very fond memories of both your parents, Mimi and Dick. Perhaps you will also remember a bit of me, after so many years gone by.
Avec toute ma sympathie, Michèle

Very sad to hear of Dick's passing. I spent many Friday nights as a kid at Dick and Mary Ann's (my dad was good friends via Florida Power with Dick back then and they would hang out and drink a bit on weekends, listen to music, and generally do some pretty funny stuff). They were really great people. Mary Ann actually introduced my mom to my dad. I will never forget Dick Blank's laugh... yet I hadn't seen him since I was a kid which is now almost 40 years ago. I watched them dig that pool by hand... at least thats how I remember it. He will be missed.

So sad. I can't tell you how much this hurts. My son and I visited Dick in March and I am so glad we did. Had a nice visit. My condolences to Dick's family. I will miss him greatly as I have Mary Ann
