We are so so sorry for your loss. I have so many good memories over the years of Dickie. He was the best man at my wedding and worked with me at Home Beneficial. We have kept in touch ever since 13 years old. I will miss our phone calls. I wish we could travel there, but due to the COVID-19 we are advised not to travel from Florida at this time. However , we will be there in spirit.❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Jesse Davis
