Aunt Virginia, Denise, Gary, Renee, and Ryan,
I’m sorry that I can’t be there with you all. I know how difficult it is to lose a loved one. Uncle Rich will surely be missed.
Though we don’t see each other often, I think of you all and remember fondly time spent together oh so many years ago on Blossom Way and I especially recall the last time I saw your Dad…at Uncle Walt’s 90th birthday party. I couldn’t get over how much he reminded me of my own Dad.
