    My heartfelt condolences go out to you all. Dirk was a wonderful man and friend to my family. He will truly be missed but never forgotten. His memories will live on in us all forever. I will never forget how he always had wintergreen mints with him in his pocket. He would always offer me one and I was happy to take one. Every time I have one I will think of and remember him and how he loved them.
