Kristyn, My family was very saddened to hear of Ricks passing. Early memories of Doug and my daughter, Pam, skating in competitions, bowling, many hours of pinochle with Rick telling on my husband,Arlis, when he would try to cheat on meld. Lots of happy memories playing penny-ante poker with Jack and Roseva and Rick and Jody. More saddened when Jody did not know who I was at the memorial in Ventura. We had kind of lost contact after they moved to Las Vegas. "Kiss", they loved you and your little one more than words can express. Please tell Jody her friend, "Dippy" (her nickname for me) loves and misses her. Thank you for taking of them. Della Dodson and family 1323 Mobil Ave. Camarillo, CA 93010 Phone 805-482-1798
