Dear Dick.,what a great guy you were. Boy did we girls think you were the best looking guy west of the Mississippi and he could dance too. Your smile sure could make a girls heart melt. But I think you were more intertested in those Hudson cars.

I'm so glad that you made it back for the class of 1963 50th reunion. It was so good to see you and meet Rita. We'll miss that smiling face and you and your gentle voice next reunion. Rest in peace dear friend and know that your Delphi Oracles say "Job well done Dick"
