Richie and Roger,
so sorry for your loss, such a sweet guy your Dad was, remember as a kid riding past your parents house and when they were out always waving as I rode by, such good neighbors they were.

We are sorry to hear about your loss. We wanted to share an encouraging verse with you and your family. At Job 14:14,15 this faithful man asked a question concerning death it states, "If a man dies, can he live again?I will wait all the days of my compulsory serviceUntil my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you.You will long for the work of your hands." Hope is something we can all share during this time.

Your neighbor,
Maddy Hernandez
