Dick and Avis have been our next door neighbors for almost 4 years. But, Bob and I have known this precious couple for decades. Our sincere sympathy is with all your family. We are thankful that Dick did not have to suffer for a long period of time. I was always so surprised at his strength, both mental and physical. I never heard either Dick or Avis complaine. Dick reminded me of a rock - a man of strong faith, love for his precious wife and family. a protector of others. ou are in our love and prayers.
