So sorry for your loss, I was talking to a friend today 10/26 and was shocked to hear it was Rich in Colebrook. I went to school with Rich at Riverside and just sold the home on Guildford St for the family. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

I read an article recently how we are only on this earth-doing God's work- sent here on earth from our real home in Heaven! Through God's work, Rich left some incredibly wonderful people along with their creations, and I am happy to share "Life" here on earth with them.
You are all in my prayer!! Rob, Shannon, If there's ANYTHING I or Bill can do, Please call or yell across the lawn! We're here for you and yours. Cherish the memories and know "Dad" is "shining" down on you all' As Always, Cory

Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. A few words offer peace during a difficult time, perhaps the words expressed at Revelation 21:3,4 provide you with both comfort nand hope along with the realization that soon tragedies such as this will one day be a thing of the past.

Mel,
I am so increadibly sorry for your loss.

May you see God's light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
When the shadows fall-
You do not walk alone
-Anonymous

Dear MaryEllen & family: Words cannot express the loss that we are feeling. Richard was like family and I remember the sense of pride growing up as he was the only soldier I knew in Vietnam. Our families have shared many happy and sad times together. May you all feel God's peace as we lift you up in prayer.

Mel,
After hearing the news at work my heart seemed to stop beating as I felt so much sadness for you and your family. I never met Rich, but knowing you for all these years he was lucky to have you in his life as well as you in his. You are as genuine as they come and I am so honor to be a co-worker (friend) of your's. Please hold on to the memories. Love you Tina

They say one's greatness can only be trully recognized in death. And through these tough times people come together to remember and share memories and tell of how Rich influenced their lives. Seeing the amount of positivity and number of people he helped, touched, and influenced is amazing. Rich is a great man and has a beautiful family that will never let his experiences through life be forgotten. My prayers n thoughts r will u all.

To the entire family, there are no words to help with the pain you feel in your heart today. We can only tell you that we love you all dearly and that we are so very sorry for this heavy burden you must face as you try to make sense of this tragic situation. Rich was a wonderful man and we will miss him dearly. Part of him will live on in each of you and I know that Rich was proud of each and every one of you and loved you all with every bit of his soul. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and always. With Love, your Florida family.

There isn't a word anyone can speak or write to ease your anguish, pain and loss so just know how much you mean to me and how much I am praying and asking for help for you from above. I will be at the mass on Friday dear friend. I'm so sorry for you and your family. I know Rich will be watching over you always.
