I love and miss you Uncle Richard.
My deepest condolences to you all.
I will never forget how much he loved playing in his band and all the gatherings we had in the backyard. He was a loving and kind uncle. He and aunt Alice opened their home to me and my babies long ago and he always made us feel welcome and at home. He always had snacks and goodies to offer the kiddos and was very generous with them. "Take somemore" he would say, "aye tenemos otra caja por aye atras. Theres ice cream in the freezer too." He would tell me. I will always be grateful for his help and kindness.
I pray you find your peace Tio, and reunite will all your loved ones awaiting you in Heaven. Thank you once more. Your good deeds are not unnoticed and are greatly appreciated.
Your niece,
Christie Flores
