Ginger & family. I was so sorry to hear about Rich’s passing. I know that he had really gotten sick and I know from experience that you truly do not wish them back when they are so sick. May your fond memories & God’s love sustain you at this time.

Dear Ginger and Family,

We were so shocked and sorry to hear about Richard. My Dad had died the previous day so we were up north attending to that. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
George works at the 440th. Condolences to Sheryl and John, and Barb and Frank.
