Mary Kay, I am saddened by the loss of Dick. What a great life he and you shared together. He was an inspiration and a role model for many of us young guys at Taft. Know that Dick influenced a lot of lives in a very positive way and I am better for having known him. I noticed that your son lives in Morehead City NC. My wife and I have been in NC for the past 31 years and live in Apex. Tell Richard Jr to look me up we would love to visit with him.

Mary Kay, Richard and Judy,
I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Dick was a fine man. I can never remember a time that he wasn't laughing and/or cracking a joke. You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
