Dear Dick and family, Having just returned from Germany I learned with deep regret that your wife Gwen had passed away. I remember you telling me about her upcoming heart surgery. Unfortunately, the complications must have been too serious. My thoughts are with you and your family. If there is anything that I can do, please let me know! Your friend, Jochen

Dickie and the Family, Our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your dear wife and mother and grandmother. May God Bless you in the days ahead and look to HIM for strength as you adjust. Focus on the wonderful memories you shared through the years. Dickie, when I think of you, I remember the times you allowed Patsy Shirley and myself ride home from Atlanta to Ninety Six. We were attending massey College in Atlanta. This was before you and Gwen married.

Dick, you have my deepest sympathy. I had often had wondered what had happen to the two of you. I did not know that you had married. Now I see that you have two children to help you carry on. I know that Gwen will be missed by all that ever knew her, I know that I will even though I only knew her for a short while. I always thought she was a very nice person and was nice to me in school. Again be strong and keep your faith. Sincerely, Billy Hasting
