Dear Mark,

I am deeply sorry for your loss. Nothing I can say can ease your grief, but be consoled in your faith. And I know that your dad was a great man because I have seen the proof in his son.

We are saddened by the passing of our good friend and we wish to express our condolences to family and friends. Richard was a great joy to know and was very important in the publishing of the CHECKERS Magazine by the ICHF. His story telling and accounts of tournaments are unsurpassed. A more in-depth tribute will be found in the next publication of CHECKERS. God Bless you all. The Walker Family

Our sincere condolences go to the Fortman family. Faye, even though I only got to see the two of you a few times, I was always impressed by the love you shared. May the memories of your 58 years together bring you comfort until you are together again.
