Carl, please pass on to Dick our sincere condolences at this time.

Our thoughts and prayers go to him and his family.

Dick, when you get around to reading this know that your forum family feels your loss with you. We are here if you feel the need to talk with someone. I know that the support of my forum family really helped when my wife Sue passed 2-1/2 years ago.

That is very sad news. Our thoughts are with you Dick.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Very sorry to hear that.

I want to thank all of the forum members for your condolences, prayers and thoughts.
She died of a massive stroke Friday night. She had severe COPD, and had been on oxygen for the last couple of years. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on May the 25th of this year. She was only 5' and 110 pounds, but she loved working with wood. We built an all new, complete kitchen at our old place, all from some rough sawn red oak I had bought at a bargain price, and had planed. The butcher block counter tops and island top were made of 2-1/4" ship-lap edged oak trailer tuck flooring. While building the cabinets she would grab a piece of oak and take off to the RAS or miter saw. I would just give her the dimension, and off she would go, then bring it back right on that dimension. She was as much of a power tool nut as any man I have met. She did all of the staining and finishing on the new kitchen, while I worked my full time job. That kitchen and her work is what sold that house.

She was quite a lady. Our 2 sons, 4 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren, and of course myself, will surely miss her.

Where there's a Willis there's a way!

Dick, my deepest condolences to you and your family.


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
