Dear Dick: Today would have been your 62nd birthday, the day you were planning to retire.  But God had a different plan for you.It has been less than six months and the pain is as fresh as the day you left us.  We miss your sparkling brown eyes, your soft smile and the way you would wrinkle up your nose when you were teasing us.

Till we meet again.
