My heartfelt love and condolences to both families of Tabitha and Troy. I am glad to have reunited with him a few years back...we covered many years of not seeing each other in the short time we finally did have. Every phone call we laughed hard and the couple times I visited, we laughed hard. But more important, we connected as a family and shared stories. I will greatly miss him. Dan Dickinson

I was saddened to hear of Uncle David's passing. I have not had contact with him in years but was glad to read that he led a full-life doing what he loved. He bears a striking resemblance to my father, Frank Dickinson, and wish I had remained in closer contact with him. My condolences to Tabitha and Troy. Much love to the family. Jennifer Dickinson (Linsey).
