Very sorry to hear of Dick's passing. I have very fond memories of him growing up around my Uncle Ben and Aunt Doris. Dick was about as fine of a human being as one can be. My thoughts are with you Martha.

So sorry to hear about Dick's passing. I worked with and for Dick when I was at Homesteaders. We used to trade the Dick Francis novels as we both enjoyed them. We will miss him at the Bob's lunches. He was always very good to work with and a friend to know
