    Please accept my heartfelt condolences of the loss of your husband and father. I met Dick and Althea over 30 years ago thru work. Even after they moved to South Carolina, he would still visit our agency when he returned to Hartwell. He was a great man and I learned many things from him. May God provide you peace and comfort in the days ahead. Laura Milford, Skelton-Morris Associates.
