My father-in-law, Kevin's dad, our children's granddad was a treasure of a man.
He was very loving, kind, thoughtful, sweet, funny, tender, strong, . . .
I could go on and on.
He was so dear to us, and we miss him very much. He never got to meet his three youngest grandchildren, and he never got to see most of his grandchildren grow up. He has missed out on so much in this life of his beloved family. Dick died young in 2002 at age 72. That makes us sad at times, but the time he did have here on earth . . .
. . .he lived to the fullest.
He was a loving and faithful husband, a devoted father, and a doting grandfather.
At every family gathering, Dick could be found playing with the kids. Playing basketball, drawing pictures, playing hide and seek . . .
Or just holding the little ones. He loved his family, and he was crazy about his grandchildren.
Happy Birthday Dad, Dick, and Granddad. You are always close in our hearts, and we will never forget you.
