Tony and Tracy,

My heart felt sympathy for the loss of your dear father. May you find comfort in your cherished memories.

Doyle and I are long time friends of Dick and Donna. Dick worked for Doyle at Miller's Sunoco around 1963 or so. We moved to California and now Oregon. So proud of Dick and his accomplishments. We last talked to him 2015. So sad to read of their home going but I know they are well in heaven and together again. Our prayers go out to Tony and Tracy and their family. Doyle and Jaynie Miller.

We are sorry to read the sad news. Larry and Dick went to school together, although Dick was always the “little brother’. There are many growing up memories. Your family has our sympathy, love, and prayers.
