    I am so sorry for your loss. Dick was a wonderful man and a great mentor to me on the Residents’ Council. I share in your sorrow as I lost my husband, John, on October 31. No matter what the circumstances, it is a difficult time. I hope you will find comfort in knowing Dick is in the loving hands of God.
