Dear Betty, Diane and Dennis,
You are in my prayers as you adjust to the loss of Richard: husband and father. We are never really prepared and this loss is difficult. He was a good man who was proud of his family and gave back to our community. Please know I am thinking of you and praying you will feel the love of those who share in your sorrow.
God is blessing you,
Mary Welch Rogers
