It saddens me to have to pass this along.  Dick Edlund was one of the 
primary persons responsible for getting me involved in the 
Federation, for teaching me, and for believing in me when some others didn't!

  am surprised that this information hasn't been out on other lists 
already, but it is my sad duty to tell you that our good friend 
Richard Edlund has died. Dick had been hospitalized since sometime in 
early October, and his last few days were spent in hospice care.

Many of us remember when Dick was our long-time National Treasurer 
and the State President in Kansas. He also served in the Kansas 
Legislature, was a champion for sheltered shop workers, and a 
goodwill ambassador for all blind people.

Dick meant so very much to me that it is hard to know where to start, 
and I'm sure that many of you have similar feelings.

I've heard nothing yet about funeral arrangements. When I do, I will 
pass them on. I will always associate box 11185 with the best of what 
it means to be a Federationist.
