Doreen, Gary and families please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I remember our families all growing up together on the Heidlersburg Rd. As a bus driver for SpiriTrust in Gettysburg a few years ago I was able to drive a RL trip for Utz Terrace and Dick was part of the group. It was great to talk with him that day.
