Outside of immediate family, this man did more for me than possibly anyone else .. I was unofficially adopted by the Remender family through my very best friend growing up, his son, Rick... for year after year, house after house, vacation after vacation & Abba song after Abba song; Richard Remender accepted me as part of his family & I love him & his family, truly, & always will... I am grateful for all of the kindnesses & wonderful adventures that I experienced... Thanks to this man... My thoughts are with you and your family, Mr Remender... May peace be with you... Mrs. Remender, you were always an angel, holding everything together & maintaining a loving & accepting environment no matter where it happened to be, your patience & unconditional love is amazing... I can only imagine how this has affected you... I hope you know how special you are to me & I'm sorry I can't do more to help, but my heart breaks for your loss...Elise, I'm sure that you have grown into a beautiful & interesting woman; I hope we didn't scar you too badly... Let me know if there is anything I can do to help... Rex, if you remember any of our interactions, I'd be surprised, but i have stories & I'm sure you are doing well these days... Your dad was a huge part of my life & I'm sorry for your loss, sincerely... Rick, I love you & I miss you & if there is anything I can do, I hope you know that I will be there in whatever capacity would help... Just let me know... My heart is with you & your family... You &I have much to talk about, when you have some time, sorry to be so cheesy & awkward, my friend; I mean every word... My heart goes out to you...
