Recollections & Sympathy For the Family
Post Comment
To the Reed Family, Dick and I got to know each other about fifty years ago at Sprague. At Curran Highway, we worked closely together for about two years. Although I knew very little about what was going on there, Dick was more than willing to share his knowledge, for which I remain very appreciative. Also remembered are our extended talks about your trips to see the Phillies, sports, and railroading, which occupied too much of some days, but made those days in particular, more tolerable.

My sympathies on your loss to your family.
