Dick and I got crossways a couple of times on here.
Then one day he pm'd me an I realized he wasn't such a bad guy. I wish I'd have got to know him better.
I would like to donate $50.00 to this site in his memory
and will donate $1.00 more for anyone else who donates
and posts it here up to 100 donations.
Dick I'm sorry we didn't meet.

I'm very grateful for the outpouring of memorial donations being made in the name of Dick Bennett. Your continuous support through eBay bids and occasional gifts keeps Oldgas.com going in solid financial shape. Actual need is greater in the short term with DB's family. I'll be contacting each of the memorial donors to see if they agree to forward their gift to Judy for use as needed. Whatever your decision, I'm honored to be part of a community who cares and acts on it.

I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the old gas members in their donations, outpouring of love, prayers, and respect, and wonderful comments for our friend Dick. Jim please sent my first donation to Judy and the second one that I just sent is for OldGas . Thank you for your willingness to help Judy out during this difficult time.

Just to let you know, the total is nearing $3000 for Dick Bennett's widow, Judy. I'm amazed by all the small and large donations and all the kind words posted on the other DB topic. I guess I shouldn't be amazed as he apparently meant something special to many people. Thanks!

It feels a little like I'm sitting at the table at the end of the movie, "It's A Wonderful Life."

I am sure there were plenty of members that donated without commenting on this thread as well. The generosity of this group in the time of need is by far the best anybody could dream of. I am proud to be a part of this group! Good job gang!!

Thanks to everyone for their donations. The total came to $3750. I'm sure Judy can put that to good use. And it will show that Dick Bennett really meant something to a whole bunch of people from all over. Significant donations were received from petro enthusiasts who did not post in this topic.

Thanks also for all the heartfelt words in the main Dick Bennett topic:

Jim, I just finished sending a donation that will round up that figure to an even $4000.00.

I'm also impressed by everyone's generosity and sincere heartfelt respect for our friend Dick BENNETT.
