Leslie Carroll. The world lost a rare and fine spirit.
Marilyn Moyle. We are grateful for Dick's life and the gift of music he gave to Noah...we were talking about him yesterday, and Noah said Dick expanded his appreciation of music - opera, jazz, all the eras of classical music. Noah listens to music while writing on his laptop, and it's all lovely music that enriches him daily. That gift will live forever.
