To Loretta and extended family,
We are so saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Richard. Whenever conversation would come up with the mention of just one name, Loretta or Richard, it immediately made us think of the other person’s name. The two of you are a rare testament to what it takes to make an amazing couple. Loretta, you and Richard always worked overtime to schedule such import family events, as the annual family reunion or an afternoon at your wonderful camp! Also, whenever family or friends needed either one of you, you both were immediately there to assist. In your “spare time,” the two of you made those trips to other parts of New England, in order to spend quality time with your children and grandchildren. Looking back now, the winters you spent together in Florida hopefully extended Richard’s life, because the schedule you kept with your Florida friends brought thousands of smiles and laughter! Lastly, the memories of have of you both at 59 Park Street will also remain with me forever. RIP Richard and God Bless You. Loretta, we love you and you are in our thoughts and prayers always, Our condolences to the Hamann and Alvino families. Michael Alvino and Roxanne Eflin
