Dick and liz reunited in Heaven making music for the Lord. Unique and wonderful and full of entertainment and love. We all loved being with my Brother Gerald and Randy Wallace in the "Who So Ever Will" Group. Dick and Liz where always a bundle of joy and talent. God bless them and their families and may God Bless you all. June and Gerald and I will keep you all in our prayers. I look forward to singing "My Old Kentucky Home " for your service today at 6 pm December 2, 2019.
