Condolence & Memory Journal

I am sorry to learn this news. I worked with Dick at Stone in the 90's and much enjoyed our travels. He was quite a knowledgeable and humorous man. A most generous and kind person. I can attest that he knew the New England area like the back of his hand. He loved his desserts! My sincere condolences to his family.

Heartfelt sympathy to Dick's immediate family. Fond memories of my friendship with Dick during late elementary and high school years. So many hours spent together fishing down at the river.' Much more time with Dick at the family home on Upland Street with his Mom, Dad and brothers Don, Tom and David. Memories that time can never erase. Rest In Peace, my friend, and I'll see you again, pole in hand, down at the river' at a time to come.
