    Chris and Mary,

    Joe, Herman and I are sending you and your family our thoughts and prayers. Take to heart the good times, those times that laughs were plenty and spirits light. Hanging on to them when the darkness of grief tries to visit.

    Breezes blow bringing scents of yester years
    Times of memories treasured
    Mirroring wishes of today and tomorrow
    Heartache pushed aside to smiles

    Joe, Sylvia and Herman

    I am so sorry to hear about Richie. She always had a twinkle in her eye, yes, even if she was scolding someone. I remember when I first met her, she was so nice and welcoming, I got a big hug! I wondered, is this a Southern thing, or is it just her. Was it that we both drank coffee, smoked, or read books all the time? I’ve come to realize, that was just Richie. Condolences to all, Rilaine, Pat, Darrell, Steve, Chris, Cindy, James, Ken, and the rest of the family. She will always have a special place in my heart. God bless.
