With sincere sympathy, I send you a heartfelt condolence in the passing of my old friend and classmate of 1951, Calhoun County High School. He was a great friend and always wore that smile and was jovial. Richard was my neighbor on South Side, Grantsville where we lived. His friends, as well, loved Dick and too many years have passed since we've been blessed with his
happy smile. You will be missed by all. May the family be comforted in this difficult time. Virginia (Weaver)Buck
