We express our heartfelt sympathy to Dick's family. Unfortunately we will be out of town at our daughter's home on Saturday and can not attend the memorial service.
Dick and Nancy always held a special place in the heart of Sue's Father, Ed Bair. Dick will be remembered for his kindness.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
