    Max (John) and I were so sorry to see Dick’s obituary in the paper. Max roomed with Dick at Shelby from ?ug. 13th until Aug. 18th. We knew that he was in much pain, but he was a quite man, a nice man, a man, who we could see doted on his grandchildren and loved his family and home so very much. He had a lot of courage in his pain. You have our most heart felt sympathy. He rests in God’s arms.
    Max and Betty Taylor
