Bill and I stayed with Richard and Elaine on our honeymoon in 1969. They were such great hosts and we enjoyed them so much. We fell in love with their beautiful, talented daughter Lynette (Wendy, I'm guessing) and we even named our daughter after her. And like wise, our daughter is beautiful and very talented. We enjoyed visiting with Richard at the Durrill family gatherings in December and he will be missed. We are both so sorry for your loss and ours as well. Sharlette (Durrill) and Bill John
