Beverly, Cindy, and Ricky, my husband and I extend our deepest sympathy at Uncle Rich’s passing. I know that the care you gave was a comfort to him. He and your Mom both were so kind to me and always made me feel like family. We are away at this time and won’t be able to attend his service. I wish you peace and the gentle hug of our Lord’s arms around you.
