Dick will be greatly missed by his fellow woodturners. I’m so sorry I was out of town and was not able to join you for his celebration of life. Irma, my prayers and thoughts will be with you and your family during this difficult time,

With love and sympathy,

I am so sorry for the passing of Mr. Dick. My daughter Salem introduced us when she worked at the Belmont McDonalds. She had looked for him ever since she left that job and is truly devastated by this news. We are very sorry for the loss of such a lovely person. Thank you for befriending my daughter Mr. Dick. We won't forget you.
