To my dear friend Rosemary,

I am so sorry for your loss and extend my condolences to you and the Frias family. I was so blessed to have known Richard; what a genuine kind man. Richard loved to give meaningful gifts; I am currently looking at a beautiful African Masks that Richard purchased for me “on his travels”. I treasure it because I knew when he purchased it he thought of the joy that it would bring me. Rosemary you and Richard have been family to me and I am truly going to miss him, but I look forward to the day when we will see him again when Jesus returns.
Love you always
Charmain Botchway

To the Frias family.....I am so saddened at the passing of Ricky. I first met Ricky when we worked together at TWA at the downtown airport. Ricky was a mentor and good friend to me. We were both laid off in December of 1970 and met again at the overhaul base in 1973. Ricky always called me Brother Jennings and I will always remember that....rest in peace Brother Ricky!

Cousin Rosemary-
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I vividly remember your beautiful wedding ceremony- Richard performed a beautiful violin piece- he was so talented. Know the Angels greeted him in Heaven with the sounds celestial musical hymns. We love cousin Rosemary! May Perpetual Light shine upon Richard.
Dear Precious Lord:
You hold time within your hands, and see it all, from beginning to end. Please keep and carry these precious people in their sadness and loss. Cover them with your great wings of love, give their weary hearts rest and their minds sound sleep. Lord, lift their eyes so that they may catch a glimpse of eternity, and be comforted by the promise of Heaven.
We ask this in the precious name of
Jesus
Amen

Rose Mary, our deepest condolences and love to you during this difficult time. We will always remember Rick’s humor, wit, and our many conversations. He enjoyed shopping for you, and always had something to share with others from his many estate sales’ adventures. Whenever someone needed something repaired, he always wanted to help. We enjoyed his great Mexican cooking including his burritos, which were the best. We’re praying that you will find comfort knowing so many are thinking of you. Our sympathy to Rick’s son and daughters. May he rest in heavenly peace. We love you, Rosie, and we’re here for you.
