Janet- My heartfelt sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time. May your precious memories bring you comfort.
We were saddened to learn of the passing of Uncle Richard. Growing up, I was entertained by Bill Harrold’s stories of all the trouble from the pranks he and Richard would get into growing up in Pittsburgh. Richard also teased his older sisters quite a bit—I heard those stories too! Since I was born and raised in California, I didn’t share the Pittsburgh background with the rest of my cousins so I didn’t have the opportunity to spend much time with Richard, but the stories I heard about him made me feel that my Uncle Richard was quite an interesting character. Jeff and I send our condolences to Jan, David, and Rickey. May your memories comfort you at this time.
Janet, you have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your Dad. May his memory be a blessing and may he rest in peace.
My sincere condolences to the entire family. So sorry for your loss.
Jan- I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your dad . Some how things never seem the same again when one of our parents passes away. Wishing you peace during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Joyce & Chris
My heart and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. Please accept my sincere condolences.
