Dear Ruth & Family,
We were so sorry to hear of Dicks passing! He was a wonderful man & good friend!! We enjoyed working with him when he was with Bear River. That was for over 30 years! Was always a pleasure to see him when he would come into the shop or we would see him in his office. He will be greatly missed!!!

Ruth and Family,
We were so sorry to hear about Dick. Duane really enjoyed working with him at Wheeler Farm and the friendship they had after they both left the farm. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
