Virginia: 

So sorry hear about your loss.  Dick was such a very good person.  I am glad to have known him.

Sorry that I was never able to keep in much contact with the two of you.  It has been many years now

since our Junior High and High School days.  I really hope that the two of you had a wonderful life and

your many memories stay close in your heart.  God bless you and your family. FYI, as a rookie at the Sacramento Police Dept, I had some really interesting shifts with Pappy.

Dick was one of the "guys" in our car group in River Park during high school days. Funny guy with a dry sense of humor.  After he retired from teaching I remember visiting him when he worked at Movados Body Shop with Webber. We always gave him a hard time about how lucky he was dating Virginia.  My thoughts and prayers are with Virginia and family, rest in peace Dick.   Steve Scott
