BEVERLY DICK

This past Tuesday, family and friends gathering in Cook’s Chapel for the celebration of Beverly Dick’s life were greeted by his picture amongst a very large and beautiful display of flowers…most of them yellow just like his yellow John Deere pants!

“Full of life with a caring heart,
Two traits of many that set him apart”
