Here is what I sent to the family:
Dear Richards Family,
Rex, Ronald G. George, Don Miller, Alan Thomas, Roger Anderson, Gary McCann and I flew on a PAN AM 707 to Tokyo arriving on the 30th of March 1961. The next day we were sent on our way. Rex rode with us as far as Nagoya. I saw him only one other time that I remember at a missionary conference in Fukuoka.
He seemed gentle and kind. I wish I had known him better. Here is a picture of him at Fukuoka, also attached. I am the one with my hand over my face.
My wife Joanne and I send our condolences.
Wade W. Fillmore
