Aunt Phyl, Allen and Joyce, Richene and Wayne, Donna and Paul, Karen and Mick and families--
I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Richard's passing. He and all of you remain in some of Rod's and my fondest childhood memories. My mom and dad cherished their relationship and friendship with you. A lot of Dad's favorite stories were from the summers he and Aunt Shirly spent on the farm when they were kids--Dad loved working in the fields with Uncle Richard and Pappy. You have my deepest sympathy.
Love to you all,

Rod and Kim Dubree

Phyllis and Family,

It has been my great pleasure, as well as my sons' Kelly and Kristopher, having the opportunity to know Richard through my mom, Joyce (Allen's wife). What a lovely, funny and gentle man that lived a wonderful life.

While he will be missed immensely, may the many happy memories bring you joy and peace.
