    Going sled riding early Sunday mornings while Mom & Dad slept!
    Sweetest of all was you & Toni bringing Judy into your lives. She is a gemstone. See you in the New World.

    Judy and family – my heart is sad. Your Dad was a great man with a forever smile sharing his wisdom before we departed for the evening. Rejoice in knowing that he is reunited in your Mom’s arms. They both will be forever with you in your heart and in the memories. Cherish those moments. May God’s Blessings be with you during this time – Deepest Sympathy

    Richard was a good man whom I’ve
    Known for 60 years. He was a man to his word and we never had an argument. He loved sports and talking about them he was spot on.
    He loved his family and was always there to help them. He never forgot his sister (Carol) and he wanted to know all about her children, grand children and great grand children. Richard was like a father to many.
