Dicky sounds like a wonderful man. I work with his lovely wife Sonja and have for many years. She is never without a smile and I'm sure that is a reflection of her partnership with her husband.
Sonja and family, I'm so very sorry for your loss. An unexpected loss is heartbreaking for those left behind, but I like to think a blessing for the one who left. I'm so grateful for the two sons and their families that will be there to support and continue to bring love into their terrific Mom's impacted life.
May God, supply you all with an extra portion of comfort in the days to come and only the best of memories to take with you.
