    Dick Geissinger was one of those rare men that go quietly on their way, serving others without any desire to draw attention to himself. He had a knack that made you feel like you were the most important part of his day. His kindness and goodness live eternally. I want to be like more like Dick.
    See you on the flip side my good buddy.
