Richard and Myrtle were the very first people I met when I moved here In 1979. Away from my family and newly married, they welcomed me with open arms. Loved me unconditionally and adored our kids. Both of them were great people. ReRe and Myrtle were both very special and will be missed by more people than anyone realizes. I know they both will be missed by our family,

I will definitely miss our "dirty joke" sessions! Even though I am a Spartan - he lovingly invited me in his home! Will miss the ol' rascal! I bet God is having some good laughs right now as ReRe tells him a new one!
