Doris , Having been out of town I just read of Redick's passing. I am so sorry. Know you will miss him greatly. Will remember his stories and pleasant personality when we got together at the Nifty 50's events. Wonder if he and Emily have run into each other yet? May the Lord give you his comfort during the days ahead.

My dearest Doris, Sally, Randy, and Robert. We were all heart broken to hear of Redick's passing. We were blessed to have seen him in may and were so very happy to see both of you. I believe that Redick is with Aunt Sally now and no longer suffering. Oh what a reunion that will be! We will miss him more than words can say. Redick was loved and the memory of all the joy and laughter that he brought to everyone will be cherished forever. My love to each of you.
