    To: Peggy Craik and Family
    My sincere condolences on Dick’s passing. He was a real inspiration during my days in the CHOIR at Holy Name Church. He persuaded me to go to the Kurseo where we all received letters from family and friends and his letter was full of kind words. With deepest sympathy, Bernice Gerein
