Condolence & Memory Journal

Richard was my neighbor and introduced himself to me a few years ago when he saw my family and I outside. He would always say hi the few times I saw him. Such a sweet man. We would always bake cookies for him for Christmas. I just heard of his passing and I'm so upset and saddened by this. Prayers for his family, and his soul. Rest In Peace Richard, you were such a sweet man and I always enjoyed our conversations.

Dear Carofono Family,
I worked at American Greetings and knew Rich for a long time. He was "One of the Good guys", caring and wanting things done right. He was willing to help when one needed it and was great to talk with. He respected his fellow employees and was friendly. I wish to extend my Deepest Sympathies to all of you.
