I don't know where to begin. Dick's passing has left a huge hole in my heart and my life, as he was such a great part of it for 40 plus years. We worked, fished, golfed and did so many things together and those are great memories that will carry me to my own end. I could not begin to match his honesty and integrity. I feel very privleged to have been his friend. As he grew older and health issues started try to take control, it didn't slow him or change his goals, and he often said to me " Well pal, no matter what the outcome, I had a good run". Although we all lost a great human being, I am happy for him.
