Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear of the loss of The Great Eddie Richter and sorry we couldn't attend the Memorial--in Arizona. Handball, of course, is where I first became involved with the RIchter tribe, and all of them were extraordinary--a part of my life I can always "look backward to with pride." Please accept my sincere condolences.

The loss to his family cannot be measured but the value of a smile, friendly greeting and a shared story will always be a treasure to those who knew Eddie.

I knew Eddie as a Rotarian and as my Insurance Agent. He was a good man and a great story teller. May his soul rest in peace.
