We are saddened by the passing of our cousin Dickie. We all have such great memories of summer vacations spent at Gramma Lyons and hanging out with Jimmy, Joan and Dickie. I remember climbing up in the tree house next door with Dick and going swimming in the local swimming hole. Dick always had cool projects, like the old radios he turned into secret intercoms. His cleverness for building things started at a young.

We're sorry we won't be at the service tomorrow but our thoughts and prayers will be with you.
