Rick and all the family: I am so sorry to receive the news that Rich has passed on. I can’t imagine it. I’m sorry I can’t come back to Michigan for the funeral. He touched my life and I’ll never forget him and his smile. Please accept my sympathy in your loss.

Rick, Kim, and Karma Jo, I am so sorry about Richie’s passing. I will miss him. I have so many fond memories of him and the time we spent growing up; he was like a brother to me. I always knew he would do anything for me. Rick, I appreciate your call. I want to make a contribution to the North Sidney Church and Cemetery Historical Association, but I don’t have an address. Would you please e-mail it to me? Beth
