Our beloved Uncle Dick passed away at 8:45 pm Wednesday, November 26, 2014. Marybeth, Tarmo, Laine and I (Nancy) were with him nearly constantly the previous 5 days; and he managed to speak with many of you during that time. Thus you should know that he passed away surrounded by our collective love.
Thanksgiving was a perfect day to remember our remarkable Uncle. We all can remember the many times we spent together and the talks where he discussed his military background, work history, family memories, political events, investment strategies, or shared thoughts and dreams.
We are thankful for the love he gladly shared with each of us, his family. We are so very thankful for the love he and Aunt Heljo shared and they never stopped reaching out to us, maintaining the continuity of family.
