Sally, our thoughts and prayers are with you, Dick, and your families. It is always difficult to loose someone who has been a part of your life for so long. Know that he fought to stay with you but realized it would be too hard for you to bear and care for him, so he had to 'let go'. May God Bless him and keep him now and forever.

His smile could light up any room and I will never forget his childlike giggle as he was telling one of his many funny stories. I feel fortunate to have considered Dickie a friend. My sincere condolences to the Harrell family for this sudden loss.
