Cheryl and family,

I am so sorry to learn that we lost your Husband, Dad, and my friend for so many years.

If there is anything I can do please let me know how I can be there for you in this terrible time.

I have so many fond memories of Dick, he made me laugh, he made me think, he made me a successful business man because he always spoke the truth.

God grant you peace.
