To Jim, Lauren and grand children,
I have wonderful memories of Uncle Dick. His laugh was genuine and heartfelt.
At Mom and Pappy's summer parties on Mulberry Street, Uncle Dick would always play basketball with me. He had a wicked jumper, which in today's game would be worth 3 points! Always gave me pointers and would keep the game close until nailing a game winner from way downtown!
Loved Uncle Dick and miss him.
My condolences to you. He was a wonderful Uncle.
Deepest sympathies,
Cousin Lee Royle
