Dick was not only my brother in law he was also a great pal. Whenever we met or spoke on the phone you could be sure of some great craic. He was so intelligent, he knew something about most things we talked about.
Veronica and I have so many fond memories of Dick. One I recall was at our wedding reception of Dick who after a Guinness or two sang Danny Boy. It was a show stopper. Another one was when he and Pat took us on a grand tour of Ireland. one day Pat Veronica and I went out for the day and left Dick to rest for the day. When we got back we found that Dick had purchased a tin of paint and painted all of the grey stones either side of the drive and up to the cottage a brilliant shade of white. Even though he is no longer with us the memories he helped to create will stay with us for ever. R.I.P. Dick. God bless.
