Dear Rich,
It's me , Rita, your Fresenius partner. Will miss your cheerful Good-morning "Hello"s. I will miss our chats and will think of you often. Won't be the same without you there. Sad to see you gone, but glad you're not suffering. God bless you and your family.
Love Rita

Dear Uncle Rich, you will be greatly missed by so many here, but you have also been welcomed home by many more. I love you so very much and pray you had a sweet reunion with the love of your life, Aunt Mary Ann, and family and friends! You have always been there for us since our dad died and I'm sure he was able to leave this life early knowing that his brothers would take care of us. I will always be grateful for your kindness, generosity, love and support. Thank you for being my gentle giant!

Uncle Rich - Thank you for opening your heart to 6 more nieces; thank you for bringing heart and humor to every family reunion - I am sad to know you are gone but I am comforted to know you are reunited with Aunt MaryAnn and our dear departed. May God bless you and hold you in the palm of His hand. ❤

Uncle Rich, you will truly be missed but I am at peace knowing what an example you have been to me and so many others. I am at peace knowing you are free from the ailments of this life and I am at peace knowing the joyful reunion with your parents, siblings and your beautiful wife. So many fond memories of all my uncles and aunts at our house for parties and especially the time he nearly cut his finger off by sticking it in a running FAN. The Ralston “boys” were a force to reckon with. You didn’t want to get on their bad side for sure. They were also a force for good and always stepped in to take care of whoever needed help. I enjoyed visiting him on FaceTime calls and an in person visit earlier this year. Love you bunches 💕💕.
