Dear VAF members:
Sorry for this very belated thank you for the lovely flowers you sent on Rick's passing. They were beautiful and I was very touched.
I hope you will keep me posted on the outcome of the scholarship competition in Rick's memory. He would have been so pleased (though I am sure would say someone else was more deserving).
I am also so glad he was able to attend the meeting this last fall in South County (I enjoyed it as well). Even though exhausting, it was [editor note: missing word unfortunately not legible on original] his effort to do something he enjoyed so much.
