    Dear Greg and family,

    Your dad was such a big support for the sports program at IC and Regis. I always enjoyed seeing him at Regis fixing typewriters. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time.

    Sincere sympathy to all the family from Dennis and I. What wonderful memories my mom and dad shared with Dick and Bernie. Dick was such a special man. We loved his sense of humor and are so grateful for all the times he and mom were able to share golf experiences and other memories together. God comfort all your hearts through the love of others who will also miss this great guy.

    R.I.P. / Peace to all the Moores. Played a lot of golf w/Dick and my Dad over the years: Hallie, Colfax, Lowes Creek, and assorted courses around the Eau Claire area. He had the greatest sense of humor and a chipping five iron around the greens to match. He was a good friend to my dad and mom over the years. Will miss ya', Richard.

    The world has lost a very fine gentleman indeed. Dick and my father were the best of friends for many, many years until my dads passing a few years ago. They played a lot of golf together over the years. Dick had a great sense of humor. When he told a great joke, he always had tears running down his face. He will be greatly missed and prayers to his fine family.
