Melba, so sorry for your loss. I feel bad that I did not help you more. Clarence Davis
I had the good fortune to work with Dick at CWLP from the day I graduated until Dick retired. He taught me many things, especially how to treat people. He was one of the kindest, most friendly people I have ever met. I also considered Dick one of my closest friends out side of work. Regardless of what life dealt him, he always had a smile and a helping hand for anyone who needed it. He will be truly missed.
