Leigha, Shawn, Remi, Weston: We always have fond memories of Rich. A very loving, kind man of God. I recall him having the good book by his side. He will be missed. We will continue to pray for you and your family during this difficult time.

James 1:12
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.

Rich's crown must be beautiful!

We Love you. Mom, Dad, Victoria, Collin.
