Not sure what to say?

Big brother, you are loved and will always be in our hearts - miss you! Every time I hear or read a joke it makes me smile remembering you and your jokes. Luckily I wasn't privy to the off color ones :-). Hope you are riding a magnificent motorcycle in the sky and smiling down on us. 16 years ago this month we lost Jeanne Marie and Buddy - too young to lose any of you, same with mom and dad. At least Gramme's time wasn't until she was 90! You have a beautiful grown up daughter to be proud of...

I really wanted to talk at your funeral - I had a story all ready to tell but was too chicken to stand up 1st. I will miss all those annoying phone calls to Robert before a race. Phone must have rang 20 times as you had more and more things to tell him. I really grew to love you and respect you and I will really miss you! We will always have a bond between us and I will keep you in my heart! Robert was lucky to have such an amazing best buddy!

Junelle...My Mom, Neva, and I want to send our sympathy to you at your time of loss...

Richard - I am glad that we were finally able to get to know each other, found out what a great guy you are. Thank you for being so kind and loving to Junelle and family, you will be truly missed.

The last few times I was at the house I felt more and more comfortable with you and I saw how you fit in so perfectly with Junelle. It was nice to know you and to have you in my life.

Richard, you will be missed dearly and will miss the phone calls and all our good talks, you will be missed at the races, you will have a lot of good friends up there, God Bless

We welcomed Richard into our hearts when he met Junelle. He will be missed. He was a wonderful husband, step father and grandfather. Our hearts go out to Junelle and all she has gone thru, to her extended Richards family and to all his friends. Richard is at peace. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Rich - You've impacted many lives and will surely be missed. Nick valued your friendship and loved your sense of humor and off color remarks :)

Our hearts to out to Junelle/Kimberlee and the rest of Rich's family. He was a phenomenal guy with a big heart. He's no doubt in heaven blasting through the clouds on his dirt bike. XO

Love, Nick & Mary Nicholson
