Sending along thoughts and prayers for you and your family. Have not seen you in a while but think about our days at St. Joes Academy once in a while.

Our thoughts and prayers are for Dick and also for Ann and her family. Have known Dick since Barker High. Had 3 good years of playing varsity basketball with Dick. Also, some memorable years of our snow mobile trips to the North country with all the guys. Gone now, to meet up with Art, Cliff, Gary, Dick, Bill and Jack.
