Condolence From: Jim Thompson, Columbus, Ohio
Condolence: Nancy, Steve, Rick and the rest of the family, I am so very sorry for your and our loss of DIck. He was one of the best Managers I worked for in 43 years with Allegheny, USAir and US Airways. I feel very fortunate now having been able to work for him 2 more years than most of my other coworkers in Columbus, since I was transferred to Washington from 1975-77. I was so very glad when he got the promotion to Columbus Station Manager after I'd been recalled. He was a great person to work for and to be friends with. I'll miss his friendship and vast knowledge of the company and the people he worked with. You all have my sincere sympathy.

Condolence: Dear Nancy, Steven and Rick.. from the day you and the boys came to Walnut Springs to enroll, I knew you and your family would make a difference in our school community and beyond. Dedication to academics comes from the home, and it was clear Mom and Dad had set a standard the boys lived up to and surpassed. What a tribute to you both. Over the years, I have enjoyed catching up on the family, worshipping with you at St Paul's. You have my deepest sympathy. I will keep you in my prayers.
