Jean, You have my Deepest Sympathy on the passing of your Son.
Susan, I was deeply saddened when I learned of Rich’s passing. He fought the good fight and you stood by him and cared for him to the end. Rich was lucky to have you by his side. I wish you peace and love through the days ahead. Rich was a great guy and now he can finally rest in the House of the Lord. Blessings and much love to you my friend.
Safe journey, Rich. I haven’t seen you in years, but you were always a kind man. You would probably haunt me if I failed to add–Go Bucks.
Dear Susan and Jean:
We are so sorry to hear of Rich’s passing. Praying that you and the family will find peace in the wonderful memories you have of the your years together. God’s Blessings to all of you.
Dear Susan and Jean;

Dear Susan and family, my sincere condolences to all of you for your loss. Rich was always such a nice person, my heart breaks for all of you
Dear cousin Richie, may our divine creator bless you with an eternity of playing golf wearing grey and red ! Aunt Jean and family much love and prayers sent your way
Susan and family, where do we start, you and Rich have been our very good friends for so many years, we have had such great times & good laughs over the years. Such great memories, cook outs, camp outs, New Year’s Eve, football games just to name a few and we will forever remember the night at Jack Town Pub! He put up such a great fight over the past 5.5 years, it was like watching the Buckeyes play, never give up, and coming out on top no matter what the odds were. He had such a great smile and positive attitude. Rich will truly be missed, and you my friend, we will continue to be by your side for anything that you will need in the next few months and years ahead. You are an amazing woman, caring for Rich during this medical crisis, so proud of you, and we know that Rich was too!
I just heard of Rich’s passing. He was a great guy who everyone liked. I have very nice memories of playing basketball, cards, and a few beers. We rarely liked the same sports teams, which lead to some very fun “arguments.”
Money condolences to his family and friends.
