Dear Aunt Judee and family, My heart and prayers go out to you. I think the last time that I seen him was (1991)when we all went to shipshewana and I was pregnant with Bryan. You guys bought me a wooden high chair.Now my grandkids use it.I wish I could have gotten to know Uncle Rich a little better as I have felt a great loss for many years. All I can do is take a piece of all the Kantorowski boys and imagine that is what my dad probably was like. Uncle Rich...give my dad a hug, tell him that I love him and will one day see him. Hugs to you Aunt Judee.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

Aunt Judee, Rich, Lori, Kristine and family. I am sorry to hear of Uncle Dick's passing. It has been many years since we've seen you, but my thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow.

Lets all remember his ornery smile as Aunt Judee called it. Those are chocolate donuts with him hovering in the photo. Uncle Rich was very rich in many ways. Another successful Kantorowski story. The only Kantorowski I know that did not fear snakes. Maybe he is snake hunting again dressed in his cowboy hat, snake skin boots carrying a gun and his smile! Be sure and know that he can dance again and he would want us to dance again too. His will continue to love and watch over us from heaven. May God grant us the strength daily to get through the grief and turn our tears into blessings. Love to all from his brother John's family
