Dear Jane,


My sincere sympathy to you and your family on the loss of Dick.  So many good years you two shared together.  I have fond memories of the years you and I worked together and us sharing stories of our families.


Sincerely,


Sharon

I am sorry for your loss. Dick was a true lynch pin for our practice of anesthesia. His knowledge and common sense approach was refreshing and dependable. 


Jerry Porter

Dear Jane and Family.


My cousin in Mpls. keeps track of obituaries and called us about Dick passing. We are sorry to hear about your loss.


Hard to believe so many years have passed as we had such good times when we were just 17-18 years old and not


married yet. So many memories and fun times to think about. Nancy says you and Dick were Saints and you took the


time to teach her how to play 500, which we then did many times. After living in Rochester we went to Denver, Chicago, Mpls


and now retired up in Walker which we enjoy.  -32 today with lots of snow so Florida would be better, but not traveling much


because of COVID and a little because of our age. Again, sorry about your loss, but having each other for 69 years had to


be great. Think of your often and wishing you the best.


Bill & Nancy


 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Finley families. Alan and Connie Jensen 

Prayers of comfort and peace for your family and so thankful he left you so many treasured memories 💙
