I didn't know Dickie very well at all. II've known Tom Lopas since we were in the 4th or 5th grade and live in the "demountables" next to the desert on what became the site for the High School. I met Dickie at the 2015 reunion and found her to be perfectly delightful. I'm sure she never met a stranger because she welcomed my wife and I to Boulder City and to her home within minutes of meeting her and Tom at the reunion. What a wonderful person and she is sure to be missed by all who knew her. - Ray & Anne Marie Arends
