    Dave and I have wonderful memories of Dick and Dottie’s visits to DC while we lived there. Especially the riverboat lunch cruise and my retirement at the Women’s Military Service Memorial. I will also remember playing pool in the upstairs room in the farm house. Always a gentleman, we will miss you!
