Wow...we lost another one and he was one of the "Good Guys".  Always with a smile and always willing to help out.  Met Dick in Jr. High and we had some great times thru the years.  He was fun, always happy and added to every occasion.....

We lost two good people this week - Dick ad Mary Wall.  Not a good way to start the new year.  I didn't know Dick very well in high school but he has been to most of the reunions.  Always nice to visit with him. My condolences to his family.  Ken

I will definitely miss him.  In jr high he was envy of everyone because he was the first to get a Moped.  I remember us standing on the his Dad's counter top as sophomores taking down the Vodka for a few sips. He always kept his composure when asked his name by girls he did not know.  There are so many stories I could tell about him as a friend,  All I am sorry for is losing contact for so many years.  I will miss him.
