  1. As I look back on my favorite family faces, I always see my Uncle Dick! Fun loving, always welcoming and so happy. He was one of those people that just made you smile when you were in his company. Gentle in his approach and caring is what he was. I was always happy to see him! I truly loved him and am deeply sad over his passing. He leaves us with a strong example of what all of us should take into consideration, to greet each day with a smile and make your presence bring happiness to others upon your arrival. That is what he did! I will never forget him as he is in my heart forever!

  2. I worked with Dick in B-6 at Elmgrove, and Dick always made it a little more fun to come to work. He truly was one of the good guys, and he will be sorely missed. My condolences to his family.

    I am sorry to hear of the loss of your husband. It has been a very long time since we have seen each other, but I think of you often and our days at Nazareth. My prayers are with you.

  4. My Deepest condolences to the Malta family. Although I have not seen Mr. Malta in many years, I grew up with his daughter & he was like a 2nd father to me. He was a wonderful man & i will always remember his strength & laughter.
    Rest in Peace Mrl M
