Brenda - the passing of Dick saddens me and I am sure that everyone who ever met him feels a great loss. Looking at his picture reminds me how much of a gentleman he was. His smile says it all. It really does

Mrs. Irwin and Brenda, Cindy and I are so sorry to learn of Dick’s death. Parkinson’s is such a tough battle for everyone involved. Please know that our prayers are with you now and in the days ahead. The obituary was so correct about Dick’s demeanor and character - at least if what I saw in high school was an indicator of what he would become. I regret that we did not have the opportunity to spend time together as adults. Blessings, John and Cindy

Brenda, I was so very sorry to see this news. What a dear, kind man he always was, and seeing the 2 of you together was one of the highlights of that visit I made to JC. I've thought of you many times since, happy to know that you were still together. Sending deepest condolences to you and your family. The world has lost half of one its loveliest couples.
