    To Dick Pope’s family,
    Sandy and I send our condolences and our wishes for peace as you mourn for Dick and celebrate his life. Sandy met Dick at Greene Central School’s annual Alumni Banquets in the years when the Class of ’59 was being honored. Bud played football and baseball on the ball flats with Dick when we were free-range kids from about 6 years old until we were old enough to play in organized sports. Dick was one of the best athletes among our group of “townies” and was always chosen first in our games. Sadly, he was not able to participate in high school football, a contact sport, because of an early injury. He would have been a star. Fortunately his injury did not prevent him from playing baseball and basketball, two other sports in which he excelled. And, although he could not play football, he showed up during football practice and spent his time kicking and passing a football to anyone who would retrieve the ball and often retrieving his own kicks just to hone his skills. Through these efforts he ended up making a mark for himself in football by being chosen to run the punt, pass and kick program for youth in Greene for several years. Bud has great memories of Dick from their days playing together in Greene, playing in pickup games on the ball flats, and playing together on the high school basketball team. We hope your memories will sustain you as you mourn.
    Bud and Sandy Meade
