Connie and I are so proud to have Richard as my brother and our brother-in-law. We have so many memories and wonderful thoughts of Richard growing up and continuing in life with him and JoAnn and family. "Precious Memories", as the song goes. "Unseen Angels", "Sent from somewhere to my soul, How they linger, ever near me, and the sacred past unfolds"
"Precious Memories, How they linger, How they ever flood my soul, in the stillness, of the midnight, Precious sacred scenes unfold".
Rich, You may be physically gone for the moment, but we will join you in coming days and live forever again with you. New experiences, New places, New events.
JOHN 3:16 "For God so loved the world that HE gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not parish but have EVERLASTING LIFE."

Will always remember playing basketball with Mr. St John, Jack, Jerry and others at their place in Palatine Bridge. Loved talking politics and history with him. He was super inquisitive and always learning. My prayers are with the St John family. While they are grieving the loss of their father and husband, they can take comfort in knowing he is in Heaven with the Lord.
