Oh the stories Dick could tell.....he would join us (several friends) at Dunkin' Donuts just about every Sunday after church and would capture the attention of many while telling of his life as a POW in WWII. Dick loved to talk!!!! He loved the limelight. We loved him!!!! He took us on an adventure through his life stories....Thank you Dick, Rest in Peace,
