    I was so blessed to have Dick as a brother. Both Dick and I were so fortunate to be raised in a loving and christian home. He was a great brother and I will always have fond memories of him and I will very forget the fun we had together growing up together. Dick I will miss you but one day I will see you again. Love you so very much.

    Dick or Dickie as we knew him growing up was not only a dear friend but he was a youth director and a cousin he married my first cousin Debbie Millis. I carry many wonderful memories of time spent with Dickie and his sister Patricia and their parents at church and in their home. One of those memories was almost being thrown from dickies car as we turned a corner to go to their house. I did not bin for the quick hands of my sister and Patricia I would’ve been roadkill that day. Dickie was a great friend and a wonderful Christian example to all the young men growing up in our church he will be greatly missed.
