The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to his special niece, Toni Wilson, and the fifth floor staff of Tuomey Regional Medical Center for their loving and professional care during Dick’s time of illness.

The family requests memorial donations be made to the United Cerebral Palsy of Northwest Alabama, 507 N. Hook St., Tuscumbia, AL 35674. This organization is a generous provider of special services to Dick’s great- grandson.
