I want to send my sympathy and condolescences to the LaPointe family and say how much I fondly remember Dick. I will forever cherish my time living beside the LaPointe Royale Oaks trailer court in the house that he owned and my family rented. I still dry by the trailer court several times a week to get to my job. I will never forget the experiences of riding on the back hoe while Dick prepared the ground for new trailers or a drain field, or a burning pit. I used to ride on the tractor with him. I remember hearing him turn it on, and I would run out and he would let me get on the back. I remember he would put us kids in the bucket and ride somewhere, or we would ride in the dump truck stomping leaves, and hold on as it emptied. There are few people today who would let us do what we did. I also learned to pour cement walks, paint and do a number of other skills that I need today for my house. I remember the ground hog cook outs or marsh rabbit as we used to say. I remember those times so fondly, that I often think back and do miss the times. May God bless Dick and the LaPointe family during this loss. Love, Steve Shive
