Dick, while living at the Laconia
State School and Training Center
(a residential placement in Laconia, New Hampshire), I always watched
your American Bandstand dance show
on a black-and-white television set every Saturday afternoon. I enjoyed watching it. The Philadelphia High School students danced well on your show.
Since your passing, I will miss you now. You hosted your American Bandstand wonderfully well! I am
so sorry to learn that you suffered
a miner stroke affecting your speech.
