I will never forget the laughs we shared in the short time I knew Dick. I am very honored to have known him. He was a determined man and I looked forward to seeing him every day. My mornings with him would always start out with him saying "good morning sparky!" I loved getting him laughing for when he did he laughed with everything he had! He will always hold a special place in my heart! I never felt as if I was going to work but more so going to visit my grand parents.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the York family during these sad times. I was blessed to have the opportunity to spend time with "Dad" as I called him over the past several years. I enjoyed walking down to his side of the house while a CC & Ginger was waiting for me. The stories and adventures that he shared with me will never be forgotten. I will always cherish the time we got to spend together. Love, Greg & the Piper family.
