    It's with great sadness this morning, that I have to report that my good-friend and friend to many....Dick Oldfield has passed-away. My prayers and deepest sympathies to his family. Over the last few years I gotten to know them well, and sincerely pray and think about them. I gonna truly miss my weekly lunches with Dick. He was a man of few words, but were funny when he has something to say.

    Mr. Oldfield had a great career drag-racing Fords and Mopars. He later worked as an engineer and crew-member with the Mopar-Missile team. He drove the first Motown-Missile, which is my favorite of the series. He loved his Comet and the "Good-Guys" 68 hemi-Dart.

                                        god has brought your friend home to Jesus, as was his request over 2000 years ago. Nothing in this world can compare to the fellowship of Jesus Christ, he’s in a better place now and not it pain.

                                        “Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory.”

                                        it is his wish that when our time comes to go home we join him in the land he has prepared for us.
