Richard Schaal brought such warmth and laughter to the screen. My fondest memories are of his appearances on the Mary Tyler Moore Show and his great scenes with Mary and Rhoda. It was an added joy to know that Valerie Harper was Mrs Schaal during those years. My sincere condolences to Richard's family and friends.

To Wendy-may these messages help you to know how much your Dad was loved by his admirers. He made us laugh every time he appeared in various tv shows and the movies. The world has lost an outstanding talent. May your memories be a comfort to you. A fan

Dick Schaal was my acting coach for some Improv classes I took in Clearwater, FL. What he taught still sticks with me today. He was a really nice guy and a true professional. It was great to learn from someone who had made it big in the business, and we all felt a little closer to stardom just being in his classes. With sympathy for your loss.
