Dear Borgan Family,

I know what a loss this is to each of you, but it is only temporary! I just watched the pictorial tribute and all I could do was smile because in every picture Dick and Doris were beaming! His constant companion and loving wife at his side! Time flies...it's been 50 years since our paths first crossed in Midland. So much about Dick that I truly loved! He was thoughtful, conservative, caring, always encouraging good deeds, sharing the benefits of hard work (at least to me)! I learned a lot from him those formative years in Midland about life and I will always be thankful, I consider him my second dad! The last time I saw Dick he was still smiling (so was Doris) at Travis's wedding, it was like we had been apart only a week....not 45 years!

Our love goes out to you as you grieve this physical loss, but I know Mr. B is perfected in that Grand Mansion our Savior had prepared for him!

Love you all! Joe & Elise
