To the editor:

On Sept. 19, the Knights of Columbus sponsored a benefit for our father, Dick Logan. There are no words that can ever properly thank all of the many people who put in so many hours of their time to organize the event, as well as all the businesses and individuals who donated items for the silent auction and bake sale.

The money the wonderful community of Lincoln and Logan County raised has helped our father and us manage his health care and meet our needs for future medical care.

We would also like to recognize the mayor and city of Lincoln for honoring our dad with Dick Logan Day.

Thank you to all of Dick's friends and family who came to pay their respects and participate in the activities. Your support was far greater than we could ever have anticipated. It was a joy to each of us to see the direct impact our father had on each and every one of you. We were overwhelmed with happiness and pride for the successful life our father has led.

Our sincere gratitude,

Dick Logan and his daughters and son: Diana, Sara, Elizabeth and Darren
