Tragedy During the Appointment
in Tampa ~
Richard, Jr. who preferred to be called Rick, dived off a fishing pier into the Gulf of Mexico and broke his neck. Initially, paralyzed from the neck down, he spent a year in the hospital, usually occupying a Stryker frame.
Enjoying His Granddaughter ~
Reading to Katie, Emily's daughter, was a favorite activity for Dick. As she grew older, they vied with one another by telling imaginative stories.
A Trip to Hawaii for the Whole Family ~
Dick and Rick enjoyed the Dole Pineapple Plantation. We were sad when Rick died four years later.

Love, Beth
