I'm sorry to hear of John Dick's death. We were first cousins, with our mothers being sisters. Being the baby of the family, he was much older than me. My first memory was him walking up the walk at my home, in his naval uniform. I was about 3 y.o., and the uniform scared me to death! My condolences to Ardena and all of the family.
