    I can tell Mr Carney was greatly loved and will be sorely missed. I did not know him, but what him and I share is being born on the same day and in the same hospital. Apparently Mr. Carney and I shared the same nursery at birth, breathed the same air, yet experienced life differently. Godspeed to Mr. Carney’s family.

    Will miss you Uncle Dickey. Thanks for being there when my family needed you so long ago. Aunt Jean would be happy with you and how you raised them. You will be missed in my world. I also remember when you came over to get ham and beans on every Jan. 1st at moms house. Play your cards, trains, and dicey with your parents, say hi to Aunt Jean for me too. We miss them like we miss you already. Rip Uncle Dickey.
