    We’re very sorry to hear of cousin Dick’s passing and send our condolences. I have fond memories of Dick. I once took a computer course and was surprised when Dick was the instructor. The next time we ran into one another was at the King Eddy enjoying the blues during a Saturday jam session. Dick was smart, interesting and had a wonderful sense of adventure.
