|EULOGIES & CONDOLENCES|
|Dear Dot and Sons,
I am very sorry for the loss of Dick. I have thought of you all over
the years, but as usual time moves so fast and you think tomorrow
will go on forever. We were out of town the week of these events
and only found out too late. I remember working with Dick in
Lester, Alabama when I was a PA student and then "reuniting" with
him here at Mountain Home. It was my pleasure knowing him.
Please accept my and Fran's condolences. Fair winds and light seas
for the coming journey ahead Mr. Miller.
Eric and Fran Chlebisch|
