Dear Georgia and Family,

I was so saddened to learn of your loss. Wayne King sent me a note via email. You may not recognize my name, but I worked with Dick at the Brotherhood – was in fact his secretary while he was Vice President prior to the merger.

Dick was great to work with and always a gentleman. He will be sadly missed by his many friends.

Please accept my deepest condolences.

In heartfelt sympathy,

Pat

Georgia, Rich, & Sandra——

We are very sorry to hear about Dick. I owe him a lot, as he broke me into the union life, when I came to E. Liverpool. I am forever greatful. We are glad we stopped to see you two, sometime back.

We will not be able to get back and we wish you the best, at a time like this. The world is now missing a man who did things his way, but he was right in my book. We will miss Dick. Good luck to everyone.

Wayne & Gladys
