Sending condolences to Dick and the entire Callendar family during this most difficult time. My dad thought the world of Dick, so I have several memories of my dad mentioning Richard from stories they exchanged on the way to Ormet. Please know that you all are in my prayers.

Elisabeth was one of my best students from age 5 until covid closed. I only knew Rick as a father. He surely was always calm and kind. It was obvious how much he loved his precious daughter. So much heartfelt love is sent to Elisabeth and the entire family. Prayers are sent in abundance.

Rick was my boss when I worked as a pharmacy technician in the late 80’s at Rite-Aid in Welch. I remember him fondly. He was the first person to suggest medical school for me. I attended medical school years later and realized that I had learned a lot from Rick when I was a technician. He will be missed.
