Not sure what to say?

Hi, Nora,
One of my childhood memories of my Uncle Dick was the one dollar rivalry bets that he and my mother, Murl, would place on all of the Alabama/Georgia games. Being from Georgia, she always enjoyed that. Once he laughed and told me that, when he died, it would NOT be during football season!

So sorry to hear of Dick's passing. He was the one guy I remembered from the annual 10th Armored Reunions. His sense of humor was great. I enjoyed talking with him at the last reunion in Louisville. (Also, loved the story of being pulled over on a trip through Wabash Indiana.)

My sympathy to Mr. Coffee's family. What a wonderful person to have known and to have him as an Alumnus of The University of Alabama is such an honor to The U of A family. I was so privileged to serve on the National Alumni Executive Committee with his son, Dick Coffee,III. I know he will be missed but hope you all gain much strength in this difficult time with all the wonderful memories. God bless and keep you.
