We appreciate your wonderful comments about my dad Dick Palmer and would like to say that he was also President and CEO of Ice Capades, The Harlem Globetrotters and the Ice Capades Chalets and enjoyed each and every one of the people that worked for these companies. I will always be impressed that he was able to call almost everyone with those companies by their first name. -- Dianne Palmer Walker
