To the Richard family,

So sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I just remember your mother always working!I don't ever remember her just sitting idle, she always had a lot on her plate. Having ten children was a full time job.

God bless,

Our mother's battle with Alzheimer's has now ended. May we all find comfort in knowing that she is now at rest and her spirit is with our Father, brother, and the many other loved ones who passed before her. May she rest in peace. I love and will miss you very much Mommie!
