Not sure what to say?

To the heavens we cast our eyes, to the beauty of the skies, now holding many gems & those who wil always watch over us. I didn't know this man, but was touched deeply by his widow's words in memory of him. His birthday marks the last day I saw my sweet Dad alive, he passed in a hospice setting just one day later, maybe now they sit in a space where laughter fills the empty skies.

I was glad to have known him. He always made me laugh

Rich,I shocked! I always loved you,you were a fine Man on earth,I'll see you in heaven my friend.

Norene, I was sad to see that you have lost your brother. My prayers are with you and your family.

Always a pleasure to work with at the City of Concord, Rich has passed on far too soon. My sincere sympathy goes out to the Canonica family.

Richard, may you be surrounded by the LOVE that is God and His wonderous eternal glory.

Really sorry to hear this !! he was a really funny guy who was there to help me with some paint for a Nightclub job at a moments notice when we both worked for the City of Concord ... I never forgot that ... Rest in Peace my friend ...

My thoughts and prayers to the family.

We will always remember for his smile,laugh and most of all his hugs. I always told him he gave good Swiss/Italian hugs. We will miss him. We will always remember him. The camping trips and the calf on the wire.

God Bless,
Mike and Carrie(The other Swiss/Italian)
