Dear Ann and Family,

I'm sending you a card but wanted to say how sorry I was to hear of Dick's passing. He had a zest for life and his passions and even now as a professor I know at least part of the "enthusiasm" I have for teaching and helping my students to succeed came from him. As the Director of the Boys Club for my generation's kids, his influence will live on through us.

I'm sorry that I was unable to attend his service but want to say that you and yours are in our thoughts and prayers. If it is of any solace, a little bit of "Mr. Masons" spirit is in all of the young (not so young now) lives he touched. I hope he has found a nice stream in heaven with some rainbow (or should I say "Brooke")trout that will put up a good fight for him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours at this time.

Ray Underwood
