Bill, Jack & Jim, and family, Betty and I were very fond of your Dad and your late mom Barbara. I was a long-term Travelers agent in Bowling Green, and our agency represented Travelers from 1924. Dick was very helpful to me when I became a part-owner of DeJarnette & Beale in 1970. My wife, Betty always said that Dick was her favorite of all the insurance company managers we interacted with at Independent Agent conventions. He was a gentleman and your Mom was an equally supportive wife. We met at least one of you sons at a convention at The Homestead. We remember, because we also have three sons; we always have said there is a special place in heaven for the parents of three sons. Betty & Jim Day
