You were always so much fun to be around! Loved your humor Uncle Rich. Liked when you and Aunt Naomi lived up 739 so close to us and we would visit. Loved my wishing well you made for us when we were first married. Rest peacefully now. Heaven is a funnier place with you there. Love you xoxo. Say hi to Gram for me ♡

I will always remember Uncle Rich and the whole Macieko clan hanging with us at Culvers' Lake -- building a house and drinking beer! Fun summers, great memories ... he will be missed.
