Our sincere sympathies on the passing of your Father. I met Dick, your Dad, and your Mother, in the early eighties in Calgary. As I recall, he had recently retired at the time and was having a ball traveling about and visiting Family. A real nice guy.
Dear Kay and family
I would like to express my condolences to you at this sad time. Dick was such a gentleman and liked by everyone. I remember that Dick took my brother Walter under his wing and taught him about banking and he (Walter) worked in the bank until his retirement. He said he loved the bank and was taught by the right person.

We are so saddened by Dicks passing. Kaye I watched you faithfully take loving care of him. I will miss him dearly. Dick and I shared a private moment on Thursday. I sat on the bed with him and took his hand in mine and told him not to worry God loved him and will take care of him. He thanked me, and I am so happy I got the chance to sit with him. Take care and our thoughts are with you all.
