    Rest In Peace Uncle Dick. I'm sorry it took me this long to track you down. The fondest memory I have of you is when you came to Wright-Patterson AFB to pick me up. We drove 2.5 hours north to see my parents, your brother. We had a great trip and I do hope to reconnect with your family. You are with God now and in great company. Your Nephew -Tom Watson
