Deeply saddened and sorry to hear of Uncle Rach’s passing. I have a lot of fond memories of the laughs we had at Aunt Betty’s. Another angel has earned his wings. Thinking of you all during this difficult time and may it comfort you to know others share your sorrow.

Will always remember our many chats over the years...sitting in the living room while waiting for Martin to get his butt movin'. My sincerest condolences to the family.
