Rich Jr. & Family... I am truly sorry for the loss of your father, husband & friend. I met your father only once at the baptism for Amelia. However, from what I've heard, he seemed to be an awesome person who loved his family. I sincerely hope that you and your family continue to keep his memories alive, and his love will continue to shine through all the people he has touched. Prayers for peace, guidance, and positivity to all of you in these dark days. With love- Ingrid Homan-Smith and family
