In Loving Memory of Richard Dean Wells, Long Time Friend and Volunteer

It is with deep sadness I tell you our sweet Richard Wells has passed away. He served as a Travelers Aid and American Tourist Volunteer for 13 years. He had a big heart and was always willing to pick up empty shifts and help out in any way he could. Best of all, he had a warm smile, wonderful laugh, and gave great hugs! Richard will be missed by all who knew him. Please keep his wife Linday and their children and grandchildren in your thoughts.
