  1. Hi Jackie, Sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. I hope all is well with you.When I remember all our years together your Dad always had his ‘old Cars’. What a nice simple life we all shared growing up. If you want to get together sometime you now have my E-mail. All our best wishes and prayers to you and your family. Kathy & Gary Battaglia

  2. Uncle Dick, I will miss you and your great sense of humor! You and Aunt Marje were always there for my family in good times and bad. May you rest in peace. Love Elaine

  3. I was walking down Oakwood and I saw a Nissan in Dick’s driveway, so I knew something was a miss. I was Dick and Marge’s neighbor from 1980 to 1985. They were just great people. Dick was an artist when it came to anything mechanical. His 1939 Mercury convertible looked like it rolled off the showroom floor. Dick was always a great guy to chat with, just a great guy. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are old Mercury’s in Heaven, and Dick and Marge are riding around in an old Mercury convertible along with St. Peter. I am sorry to hear of his passing.
