My family and I are so sorry to hear about your loss. I happened to hear of the passing of your husband on Sunday at St Michael's during mass. I didn't connect the dots because I thought your husband was around my age and to young to pass away. Please extend our condolences to your family. I'm sorry we haven't kept in touch. I remember the days when your son and my son Michael went fishing together. My father passed away January 5, 2019. Please call me when you have a chance.

Dear Eileen, Richard, Danielle and family,
I wish to extend my sincere and deepest condolences on the loss of a fun, loving and hard working man. I remember roller skating, Starsky and Hutch, great
times down the shore and many
other times together. Rest in peace Richie🙏.

Dear Eileen, Richie and Danielle, we are so saddened to hear of your beloved husband and fathers sudden passing. We all grew to know him during the Battlehill and Burnet years, a man with a heart of gold. May all your memories be clearly with you all during this very difficult time and may God bring comfort to you all as only He can do. Love, Vozos family
