    Mary: I was sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I liked and respected him. I haven't seen him for awhile and even though he was a quiet man I usually was able to get a few words out of him. I know that he will be missed. Love Mary Ann

    Mary & kids,
    I am so very sorry to hear of uncle Richards passing...I had no idea. It is sad to me that all of our families became so distant after Grandmas passing.I have so many fond memories of us all together when I was a child.
    If there is any thing at all that I can do for any of you don't hesitate to ask.....I love you all.
