Happy Heavenly 59th Birthday Rich.It doesn't seem possible that you would be 59.It's been 15yrs since you went to Heaven.I miss you so much my heart will always be broken But I know you aren't in pain anymore & you are with your Nonnie & Grandpa, & God. Someday I will be there to hold you in my arms & tell you how much I love you. LOVE MOM & LARRY
