Elaine,
I am thinking about you tonight and want to extend my sincerest sympathy. It is such a shock when your husband is taken away so suddenly. I would like to offer you a sympathetic ear or a shoulder to cry on if it would be of any help. Prayers for you and your family as you look toward the celebration of Dick's life.

To the family of Dick-
Many years and many laughs and many joys are jammed into my memories with "The Barbour"! He did live life to the fullest and we remember him fondly, from Ripon to Minneapolis!

Elaine,
So sorry about the duplicate picture. I thought the first one didn't go through, but I guess it did. This hangs in our office with all the memoirs and things from his father and grandfather. He will be greatly missed and Robert is very sorry that we cannot attend his service. We will be there in spirit!

Elaine,
My husband Robert Meshbesher and I send out deepest sympathies. He remembers going to Twin's games back in the 80's with his father Richard (Dick) and Dick and the wonderful times they had. I have a picture of them standing outside of the dome and I so wish I had it scanned into the computer so I could attach it to this. We are very sorry for your loss Elaine and to the rest of your family. We wish that we could be there to pay respect to him. Robert remembers you both as being such nice people and I remember when we first bought our house, how Dick wanted to give us something and we were never able to get together. It was a nice gesture anyway. It has been almost 11 yrs since Robert's father passed and I am sure that they are together up in heaven talking about the Twin's and catching up on old times. We are very sorry for your loss and hope that Dick is Resting in Peace now. God Bless you all!

Dear Elaine; We met you and Dick during the Listening Point luncheon at the Town & Country Club in early April. Our conversation was so warm and wonderful. You told us about your trip into the BWCA. We remember how touched Dick was when I recalled that I had worked for his brother at Land O'Lakes. When we heard about the events in BWCA in early June, we were heartbroken and remain so. Our prayers and warm thoughts are with you and your family. May God Bless all of you.

With love, Julie Paleen Aronow and Larry Aronow

Elaine,
I'm sorry for your loss. I remember all the wonderful parties you and Dick put on. He had such a great sense of humor. He will be sorely mussed. May you find comfort in his memory.
Love and Blessings,
Patti Meshbesher
