To the Gardner Family, I am a friend of Mindy's and unfortunately I did not know your dad. However, I have heard so much about him from Mindy. She is such a loving, and caring friend so for him to raise such a wonderful person that has touched my life. I am sure he was the same kind of person. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God help you get through this difficult time in your lives.

To the Dick Gardner Family: My sincere sympathies. Dick was a very devoted and conscientious Fore Way Express employee. He would always tell it like it was and everyone repsected him for that. Being a dispatcher was a job of working with drivers and customers. He was able to keep the right balance to meet the pickup, delivery and dispatch schedules. May he rest in peace and collect the heavenly rewards he earned.
