Expression of Sympathy May 13 2017 12:00 AM

Rest in peace dear Uncle Rich. He was a loving, hard working and honest man. All we had to do was ask and he was there to lend a helping hand. A loving husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother and best friend to my Dad and Mom. The four of them had many fun times and laughs together. I will miss you and our meetings at the casinos. May God watch over his loving wife, children, grandchildren and all of us who love him. May He give us all strength in this time of sorrow.
