To Mary Alice and all of the family,
My deepest sympathy on Dick's passing. Having just lost my mother a few weeks ago, my heart hurts for all of you. I have many childhood memories of growing up along with your family in the congregation at South Salem Church of Christ. The names "Dick and Mary Alice Carpenter" were mentioned together so often and so fondly that they seemed melded into one special word that described two special people. Thinking of Dick now, I can still see his ear-to-ear grin and hear his laugh. I know that Mom and Dad (Gerald and Juanita Bennett) had the utmost respect and love for both of you. My prayer is that the memories you share as a family and the knowledge that Dick is home at last with the Father will comfort and keep you now and in the days and years to come.
