Dear Radio Reader listeners,

It is with great sadness that I announce Dick Estell, The Radio Reader,
died peacefully this morning (May 6).

Messages can be sent to Dick's wife, Sheryl, via Dick's still active email
address or write to her:

Sheryl Estell
1195 Woodwind Trail
Haslett, MI 48840-8956

A gift in Dick's memory can be made to the WKAR Radio Reading
Service, which he founded in 1973.
