Louise, Janet, and Will
Sorry to hear about Dick. Sherri and I send our condolences. I have a lot of great memories working with Dick for so many years.
One of my favorites I'd like to share is when Dick and I went to a meeting with several Defense Department regarding
one of our big contracts and we had some critical things to negotiate. During that meeting, I kind of just took off and was able to
get everything we wanted to achieve. As we were leaving, he leaned over, and told me that he was impressed and congratulated
me on the meeting's outcome. It meant a lot to me, and still does. That was over twenty years ago. He will be missed.

Dear Louise and family,
We loved how Dick always had something funny to share when we were walking...he never failed to greet you with a little joke or piece of advice!! Especially, when Debbie Edwards and I talked about our CATS!
We will miss him on his bike... please know you can call Preston and I anytime..
Thoughts and prayers...
