Phyllis and Family

So sorry to hear the news of Raymon's passing. I regret that I was unable to attend services AND for the delay in expressing my sympathies. Olivia was so kind in coming to see Nick (7 yrs +) and hope you can share my appreciation. Although the road is not an easy one, I will keep you all in my prayers at this difficult time.

Warm Regards, Bette and Family

My condolences to the entire Rizzi family. So sorry that I won't be there in person to offer a hug and share my sympathies. The Rizzi family has added to the fabric of my life in so many ways. Your husband/father always had open arms for love and connection and I think of him with great fondness. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
Warm regards,

Cannot count the many happy and fun memories we have of our good friend, Ray. Our families living close together on Cunningham, our kids playing and going to school together. Our good times and fun at St. Cletus, and worshiping together. The hundreds of softball games, (at least it seems like that many). The Sportsman Club, and the parties. God blessed us with friendships, like ours with Ray and the whole family. Even after we moved out of state we still kept in touch. So sorry we can't be with you at this sorrowful time. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. love, Betty and Jim and family

We lived next to the Rizzis & we have a lot of good memories from those days on Cunningham! We both had big families (Meier’s had 7 kids & Rizzi’s with 6!)...so never a dull moment! Sending you all our sympathies, love & prayers. You will be missed Mr. Rizzi—May you Rest In Peace. I know John & Dolores will be there to greet you in heaven. Love always, Carrie (Meier) Cortner xoxo
