Aunt Lois and Richard,

I am sorry for your loss. Uncle Richard was a kind man. I have great memories of your visits with us in California when I was young. And more recently visits in Yuma. I will miss Uncle Richard's hugs. They were much like the hugs I got from my dad. When he hugged you it was with his whole heart. I was blessed to have him as my uncle. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the months to come.

Love Jennifer

Aunt Lois and Richard and family
Words can not express how I feel. Uncle Richard was the best. We would look forward to your trips to Yuma to be able to spend time with you both. I am blessed that we were able to see him in May.
May God bless and give you strength during this time.
I love you Uncle Richard God's speed

My prayers and sympathy are with you and your family whom I have loved since I was a child. I remember many fond memories of spending time at the beach and picnicking as Richard and I were going up. I surely miss him as I miss my own father when he went to be with our lord. I love you as I love my family. May The Lord be with you and console your heart during this time if mourning.

Love. Rene
