Our thoughts and prayers are with Mary and the beautiful family, it was a special pleasure to spend time with Richard this spring/winter/fall and to get to know him better. We have wonderful memories of spending time with you guys in the early days of your marriage, and also jousting with Richard over which one of us was the older. And of course there was not only family ties but sports as well when we were both involved in that "other football" (AKA soccer).
Rest in perfect health in God's loving arms.
