My sympathy to Dick's Family, Love You Guys. He will be so much missed, his humor and yes sarcasm. He was definitely one of a kind, was always so glad to see him in the summers in N.Y. and had a really fun time when him & Wilma came to Florida a few years ago, even if he didn't get to see a launch. He will be forever in my heart. Love & miss you, Your Favorite Sister. See You Later or as he would say LATER.
