How blessed to have had Uncle Rich as a quiet influence in our family’s lives. A young Northerner who traveled the world and became a Southern gentleman we were all proud of. He and his family regularly made the long trek to PA to keep in touch with his country farm roots...and family reunions with Aunt Carolyn’s fried chicken and banana pudding were always the stars!
Such kind loving people. Blessings Scott and all for being his beacon during this difficult time of loss. But what a wonderful legacy for your heart.
