have a memory or condolence to add?

I was so sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I have so many great memories of Richie and Florelle's courtship; we were in the same group of teenagers that hung out together, attending dances initially in Lake Alma and Ratcliffe. I relocated to Regina and then Calgary many years ago but we stayed in touch. That teenage group was able to get together a few years ago for a lovely afternoon of reminiscing. They were always a happy couple, and Richie was lost without her. There should be some comfort knowing that they are together again.
Sending my sympathies,

Deepest sympathy to all of you, family of my dear cousin, Richard. He was my only "boy" cousin and so I have many good memories from when we were growing up.
Love and prayers from myself and all my family.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Richard. A truly gentle soul and a strong example of what a father should be, you were all blessed to have him in your lives. I always took note of how well your mom and dad got along, never disrespectful and you could sense the love they had for each other and for you kids.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you in the time of sorrow.

Love Kelly and Corey Henderson
