Dear Rosemarie & family,

We were so sorry to hear of “Uncle Dick`s” passing. He was a great guy who taught me alot…especially when we worked at Wheeling-Pitt together. We rode together for years and had lots of fun. And we all know the man loved his beer!!! He was just so much fun to be around and enjoyed making others laugh! He will be missed.

Our thoughts are with you all at this time.

Sincerly,

Ed & Nancy Berisford
