Shirley and family I worked with Dick (Sarge) Wilson for many years on the railroad. We learned a lot from Dick, daily talking about how to be a patriotic American and a better person. Dick was a great influence on us younger guys as a mentor and a Christian. We did have our share of fun, but some times Dick had to rein us in a little. May our good and gracious Lord give you peace and comfort in the days ahead. Your friends from Columbus, NE. Tim & Dixie Gutz
