||Richard (Dick) Depew
|Mike and Robert, my sister Darlene sent me the notice about
your mother. Very sorry to hear of her passing. As a kid
growing up in Jonesboro and being a friend, I think I may have
spent as much time at your house as I did my own. So many
good memories from the thousand pool games we played to
sitting and listening to the ham radio calls being made by
Robert. Your train collection was awesome and I remember
selling you a locomotive to add to the collection. Caroline was
always trying to get me to take piano lessons which I never
did. Trying to teach me may have made her give up teaching
|Bob and Carol,
I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ll keep you in my prayers !
