Mary and family,
My deepest sympathy for you on loosing Richard's presence here. He is a lovely gentleman and I loved seeing him at Church. In these days of Easter joy we are reminded that life is changed, not ended, and I know from visiting with him that Richard was confident of God's saving love and the fact that he was invited into eternal life at the moment of his Baptism. My prayers for your consolation. Eileen Burke-Sullivan

Rich was a good friend and CEC brother. His violin skills were exceptional as well as his service to others. May you rest in Peace!
