     So Sorry to hear this. I remember many times we had lunch at Helen's and listen to Dindy tell stories. He had many of them. He would talk of his family a lot. The years that Doloris was with him were special. She was a special lady. He talked of how he missed her, the last time s we were at lunch at Helens. 


    RIP Dindy

    Dindy and I shared many lively hallway chats at Prairie State about painting techniques and the best brushes to use. I've missed his presence since he retired, and am saddened by this news. Please accept my condolences.

    Dindy, you are with your beloved wife you missed so much. You and I would talk about her and you would bring out the picture of her you always carried in your wallet.  Prairie State was a better place with you being there. God bless.

    Dindy, so sad to hear you've passed on.  Whenever I would see you with your paint brush in hand, you always had a smile on your face and a story to tell.  I loved listening to all the stories about your family, and sometimes about your WWII service time.  You shared those stories with the veterans group at Prairie state as well.  Dindy really did make Prairie State a better place  with his kindness. We've lost a true -one of  kind - friend.
