    I want to offer my condolences to Uncle Dicks family and friends. I am glad I was able to see him a couple years ago when he happened to be visiting his son, John, at the same time as my family and I were in Colorado. He was much the same as my earlier memories... philosophical, deliberate, and as energetic as ever. His earthly presence will be missed.

    Dick was my early morning weather man by texting me every morning with the weather. Had many good conversations with him and will miss him every morning.
