Sally and I are deeply saddened by Dick’s passing. We’ve known him many long years and enjoyed visits and memories of former days when life seemed simpler. He was an encouragement as he fought through the physical limitations that he dealt with for many years. He was known and loved by many people. Prayers and condolences to family and friends. Jay & Sally Burrows.
