Rich and family, my condolences go out to you. I recall your Mom and Dad coming to watch Sunday a.m. bowling and always felt you were lucky to have them there to watch. I lost both parents within the past 2 years so I understand what you will go thru. It's not easy, but just knowing they are now together again helps to get thru this time. I'm sorry to hear about your loss and wish you all best.
