There are no words to say how much Uncle Dickie will be missed. I have a million memories of him and Aunt Dixie together. I will cherish each and every one of them. Now together they can continue to laugh, to dance, and to love each other.
Kenny Jr. Michael and Rodney. I send much love to the 3 of you and hugs and kisses.
