I want to send love and peace and prayers to the family of Mrs. Rich. The Rich's family Queen and know she is going to be missed . She was a wonderful lady. I had many conversations with her when I was younger and enjoyed them all. We would sit at the kitchen table or in living room talked about everthing. She was one lady that was sweet as honey but don't take her soft voice for a weakness she could also hold her own. I really loved her beautiful spirit. May you rest in heaven. . I love you beautiful QUEEN. Sylvia

It has been a blessing to have known Mrs. Callie Rich. Many special talks and laughs to reflect on now that you have gone home. She had so much love to give to her family and still have more to share with so many others. The legacy of such a loving woman will never be forgotten. I also remember the hugs that she could give; such a big hug from a little lady!
Rest in Heaven Dear Friend!

Rest In Peace great grandma. Although you are gone, you’ll never be forgotten. In your lifetime you saw our world change right before your eyes, in both good and bad ways. Through everything you managed to still remain true to who you were and continued to love everyone unconditionally. We love and miss you each day but know you’re watching over us.
