Mrs. Woody, Robby and family So very sorry to read of Mr. Woody's passing. So many great memories of spending many weekends at your house while a youngster in school with Robby. I pray that our Lord wraps His loving arms around you all in the days, weeks and months ahead as you begin this new journey without him. I know he and Chip had a wonderful reunion and praying you all have a peace that only our Lord can give. In sympathy.

Betty: I am so sorry to learn of Richard's death. He was forthright in all of my many dealings with him, and I always enjoyed his company. You could always depend on what Richard told you which was not always true with some of adversaries in the legal world. Please add my condelences to all of your family. I know he will be missed.

Richard and I had a great business relationship. He was fun to work for. I first worked under him in 1964 at Virginian Ford as a salesman. Later on, I was his Sales Manager at Richard Woody Buick. I remember us going to Vegas for a Buick new model presentation along with Betty and Billy Lindsey. That was a lot of fun. Richard was a deep thinker and he was always thinking about business. He loved his children and was deeply appreciative of Betty and depended on her to keep things in check. He was very close to his brothers and I played some poker with he and his brothers. They would sometimes get into arguments but at the end of game, they were smiling and teasing each other and laughing. Richard taught me how to be a great sales person and because of his mentoring, I enjoyed the fruits of the knowledge he inspired in me. Thank you Richard. Hope we can sell something in heaven one day.
