Wes, your Dad was a great friend. I enjoyed my association with him and Ruth very much. One of his best features was integrity and fairness. I'm out of town on extended stay so will not be able to pay my respects in person. Best wishes to you and your family. Dan Hewins

To Wes, Dick's grand kids and great-grand kids: I was so surprised to hear this morning that Dick had passed. He always had a smile when I ran into him out and about someplace and I asked how you were all doing. He always was happy to talk about whatever was on my mind. You guys are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Wes and the boys, so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
