Not sure what to say?

What a loss to your family and to everyone who ever knew Dick. For so many years, my life was blessed to be in contact with him through the store. I still look at that space in the Encina Grande shopping center and see every aisle of the store, exactly where it was for so many years! And in the back corner I'd find Dick (and Chuck) who never failed to brighten my day. Remember when our boys, ages about 9 and 10 missed a Greyhound connection in Vallejo and arrived in San Francisco instead of...

To the Mortensen family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sorry that I'm not able to attend the funeral. I met Richard while working at CVS. He was a shining light during those dark days. It was a honor to know him. It was a pleasure to work with him. He was a great man. He will be missed.

To The Mortensen Family.
I am so sorry for your lost. Richard is a very nice man. I will missed seeing him at work and listen to his funny remarks and jokes. He is such a lovely person. I only work with him for a short period of time but I enjoyed and had fun working with him during those times. He will surely be missed.

Dear Aunt Renee, Steve and Craig,
My deepest sympathy to you all. I'm saddened by the hole in our family by my Uncle Dick's passing. I have many happy memories and am filled with gratitude. Hope to be able to see you soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the whole family.

Dear Rene, Steve, and Craig,
I was glad to talk with Rene yesterday and learn that Dick's final moments were peaceful, surrounded by family. Georgia and I send our love and prayers to a wonderful family and friends. Dave Owens

I am so sorry to hear of Dick's passing. He was a great man and a wonderful neighbor.

To the Mortensen family...... How great it was, years ago, to go into Mortensen's Encina Drug Store and be greeted with a grin and a helpful attitude by my friend Dick. We will miss him and send our love and prayers to you.... Eunice

I first met Mr. Mortensen in the late sixties. I was working for Dr. Schmidt, and the Mortensens at Encino Grande were always fun to talk with. It was heartwarming to meet up with Mr. Mortensen at CVS after all these years. He always was a gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor, and you could tell he loved what he was doing.

Dear Renee and family. So sorry to learn of Dick's passing. I'll bet he and Ed are having a great time reminiscing. You have so many wonderful memories. He was truely a remarkably kind man. God bless.
