The Trustee’s and Members of the Heritage Glass Museum in Glassboro, NJ wish to express our condolences to the Watson family. A couple years ago, Dick graciously gave us a tour of his home and his extensive collections. A truly memorable afternoon. He will also be remembered for his stories. We always looked forward to visiting his table at a bottle show and listening to a few. He will be missed!

Sorry to hear such sad news. Condolences to the family. Dick was one of the good guys in the collecting circles. He will be missed. A visit to his house was always an education. When I opened my glass studio he was very supportive, always enjoyed making a few turtles for him to give to a collector in his family. Jeff

Dick was part of a mini-church hosted by my wife and I. We were absolutely blessed by Dick's participation in our group. Besides lessons and studies reinforcing our faith and belief in Jesus, Dick often recounted his life's experiences as they related to the different topics we were discussing. Often he expressed the value of family and how proud he was of his children and grandchildren. I'm certain that heaven is a better place having received another saint... Dick to its' numbers. We were privileged to share in a small part of Dick's life and friendship.

To the whole extended family, please accept our most sincere condolences for your loss and pray that the pain of your loss be replaced by all the good memories of a life well lived.

With Love,

Paul & Deby DiPascale
