I was always happy to see and speak with my fellow dog loving volunteer and friend "Mr. Mansfield" at the Putnam Humane Society. He will be greatly missed.

Sorry to hear of your loss. It seems like yesterday fighting a fire at the CYO camp on Peekskill hollow road with Dick along side. Hard to believe that it was probably around 1962. I send my thoughts and prayers to the entire family. Stan Lane

Ginny and family, So sorry to hear of Dick's passing. Believe me I do know how you feel. You do have your kids and grandkids to keep you busy. I'm having trouble walking and other medical problems so I won't be able to come but know that I will be thinking about you all.

Rich has been such a wonderful friend for so many years. I feel grateful to have met him so long ago through Putnam Humane Society and continue a special friendship. I will miss Rich's emails and his funny replies when I sent him one. I'm so sad over this great loss and will remember my dear friend with much love and a smile. Rich was truly a wonderful man. ~ RIP, My Friend.~
