Dear Patsy, Ricky, Andrea, Scott, Andrew and Amber: Dorothy and I would like to extend our very deepest condolences to all of you in the loss of Richard(husband, father and Grandfather). He was a gentleman's gentleman...a Jack of all trades..a Master of many..a gentleman and a scholar with the most easy going personality..laughing, telling his Precision Roll Grinder tractor trailer driving stories(some really scary) and smiling along with a heart of gold willing to lend a helping hand to whoever needed one. It is amazing how we can remember so many bitter sweet memories like they were only yesterday..being your flower girl and than again at your 50th..being our "parents" and taking us younger siblings almost everywhere with you in the black corvair..he grew to love our horses especially Bueno Bar(Gwayno)( we practically lived in your barn manuring..putting in hay and straw..grooming and your kittycats..Midnight and Bootsie(his girls) and I would babysit them while you went to telephone conventions..helping clean your house..all the family gatherings on certain holidays. Richard's 50th Birthday at your house and we were "Turkey Buzzards" courtesy of Nancy. Spunky(the smartest and best groundhog catcher that Sonny found as a puppy out in a field and the now funny story how you got his son, Dusty. The hottest July day for Ricky and Andrea's wedding ..our 1st family Barbie and Ken..than the grandkids(both of them bookworms and A students)..watching them grow up..Andrew's high school band days than graduation..the meeting of Amber's kitty, Sasha. We were truly blessed as a family to have had Richard as a brother-in-law, who will be truly and deeply missed by so many..he was the mayor of of the pillars of the local and especially the Grange community. No more pain. Rest in Eternal Peace, Richard..till we meet again.
