Definitely seems to read “Dick”, you can see the lowercase “i” in the uppercase “D”.

That also explains the dot above it. I can't believe I didn't see that. Thank you!

But look at the i in the word “big” above that. The i is loopy and large. If that is an i below in the capital D it is very different in many ways.

Also, look at the h is “wishes”. That shorter hump is connected to the talk loop… the lower part of the k should also be attached but is not.

I think it is “Dale”

Very valid observations, the only thing I have to add is that one’s signature does not always totally match one’s general handwriting.

I thought it was Dale at first until I zoomed in a bit. The ''i" is mostly hidden by the "D", but it's clearly there, and that accounts for the dot above. And the c & k become clear also when you pinch and zoom a bit.

The i in "big" is very smudged and can't tell us much. An h is not going to be written the same way as a k by many people.

The transition into the e's above is much more informative to me. As is typical there is a smooth connection from the preceding letter to those e's. In the signature there is a very sharp upturn marking the bottom of a k where stroke reverses at the bottom of the stem to form the secondary loop of a cursive k.

In agreement with "Dick". Was my initial thought when looking at the picture. Lowercase "i" smushed into the mid to lower part of the "D".
