Happy Father’s Day to the only father figure I knew growing up. You were the best at everything! You could sketch up anything I requested, taught me how to fish/hunt/shoot pool/paddle boat,row boat/how to not call you Grandpa while in the store so I could eat ice cream & candy bars for breakfast! You were always there for me & after walking me down the aisle to hand me over to Kevin, you were always there for him too! After Marissa came along there wasn’t anything you wouldn’t have done for her either! I miss you & love you so much!! I hope you’re having a fantastic day with your dad today.

Hi honey, today is two years since you fell and broke your hip. I remember that night so well. The beginning of the end of our life together. I miss you so. 65 years is a loooong time. I want you to know, “you will never be forgotten and every day I shed a tear, but it’s only cause I love you and wish you were still here.

This is a poem I ran across in the newspaper. Don’t know the author but I can hear Rich saying this to me. It absolutely breaks my heart. Do not ask me to remember Do not try to make me understand, Let me rest and know you’re with me, Kiss my cheek and hold my hand. I’m confused beyond your concept, I am sad and sick and lost All I know is that I need you, To be with me at all cost. Do not lose your patience with me Do not scold or curse my cry I can’t help the way i’m acting Can’t be different, though I try. Just remember that I need you That the best of me is gone. Please don’t fail to stand beside me Love me till my life is gone.

I can't believe it's been 14 months already Papa I went to see your stone but all I'm going to say is I love you and miss you sooooo much. <33333333333

Rich, remembering you is easy, I do it every day. Missing you is a heartache that never goes away.
Posted by Jean Wludyka on 15th June 2017
I can't believe it has been a year since you went away. I love you and miss you more than I thought possible. You took care of me for so many years and did such a great job, I'm having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that you are gone. It is not easy and there is no easy way to make my heart understand. The pain is always there. Just remember ,,, if I had my life to live over, I would still fall in love with you. It was worth the pain.

Dad my heart is broken as I sit here and think it has already been a year since our last day together. That last day was the hardest day of my life. I knew you were in pain and I wanted you to feel better but at the same time I wanted to scream don't go I can't face life without you. You were there for me when ever I needed anything and when ever the girls needed anything. But what I remember the most all the time we spent together how special it truly was. I miss you terribly. I pray you are in a better place. You are in my heart and thoughts always!!!

Papa it has been 1 year but it feels as if it's been 2 days. I miss you so much no words can explain how much I miss you and love you but it's a lot. Everyone is missing you in their own ways some have shown it some have not but that ok I know they still miss you. Papa I hope you are ok and are still having a great time. I love you and miss you so so much. ~Marissa

Papa if your reading this or see me type this know that I miss you and the more it comes to June 14 the more emotional and the more I miss you and I can't believe it almost 1 year sometimes I wish that I stayed at the hospital with my mom than went home with my dad I just didn't know that you would be gone early the next morning and every time I eat a grape I think of you. Sometimes I feel that I have cried a river sometimes it feels like this is just a dream a long long dream and I can't wake up.

There are no words really to say to make this any easier to handle. You were always there for everyone whenever we needed anything. You knew how to make us laugh and smile at all the right times. Today is a day I wish you were here to say something to make me laugh again and smile. We had a great life with you in it and now that you are gone we will have to always talk and share all those great times, funny stories and warm feelings when you were with us. Logan and Shelby will never forget what an amazing Papa you were to them. I promise to make sure you are always in their heart and thoughts as you are in mine. No one can ever replace you or fill your shoes. We love you so much!! I will hold to my word and make sure to always be there for grandma like I told you I would. Rest in peace.

May this flower repusent the essence of our love.❤️ You always did the stuff that we told you to do. (Besides eat.) All the fish you caught, all the animals you hunted, they will all be loved because of you. Even though you would always sleep during an acation or just simply sit in your recliner, we would always know that you could hear, and would laugh, and listen with us. Becky and Tonya have seen their sign I haven't seen mine but I still know that you watch over me. I feel bad for my mom though she doesn't have the father that she had for the first 30 years of her life for Father's Day even though she has her real father by her side. The house he would sleep in, eat in, and be the best in. It feels so empty, and cold. But I still know that you are here. May love be by your side as you rest in peace. We will think of you always. Happy Father's Day Papa.

From the days of fishing with him on the dock when I was very young, The little boat that he built for me, Hunting together. He was always there to help when I had a fence to build or a problem to solve. Thanks Dad. I know you are in a better place. You will always be forever remembered.

My mom and dad were really good friends with the Wludykas. I remember going out on the boat fishing with Rich when I was younger. I was afraid of the fish and Rich had to take all my fish off the hook. And never complained. I remember how much he liked to fish. He will be truly missed.

Let there be happiness and never any pain in heaven for you Dad. Without you I would of never became the self-sufficient person I am. I thank you for being the most wonderful, caring, loving father anyone could have. You went above and beyond when it came to being a grand father. I miss you so much please come and watch over me if you can.

As a kid I always remember Dick coming over to our house in his white Mustang visiting the family. Dick and my dad always went hunting together, when my dad wasn't able to hunt with him anymore he was always there for my dad bringing him over frozen rabbits ready to be cooked. He was a good friend to my dad thank you for being there for him. Rest in peace Dick hope you meet up with my dad for a few laughs.

May the light you've given to each of us shine bright every day. You were the most inspiring, caring, loving, giving & spunky guy I've ever known. You taught me so much over the years, always so patient during each lesson. I'm forever grateful for being blessed to have you in my life & be able to call you Grandpa. You were also the most amazing great grandpa to Marissa, you will forever hold a special place in our hearts ♡ We love you more than words can adequately express. May you rest in peace, until we meet again ♡
