Cindy, my deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences. May God rest Richie's soul and give you and your family the strength you need to overcome his loss.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

Oh Cindy, I'm so sorry. Losing someone is so hard. I'm glad that he has some relief from his pain now. Prayers for healing for you and your family.

So Sorry at least he is not in pain anymore, but I know and understand the part of missing loved ones when they are gone. Thius is my favorite consolation prayer. Hope you find it useful.
Do not stand by my grave and weep,
I am not there...
I do not sleep,
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints upon the snow,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the soft uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the stars that shine at night,
Do not stand by my grave and cry...
I am not there,
I did not die.
There is no love sincerer than the love of food. ~George Bernard Shaw

Rich passed on around 4:30 this morning (11/17/06). It's going to be a very simple graveside ceremony on Tuesday, just the way he wanted it.

Thank you so much.
I'm so sad for you, Cindy... but the prayers won't stop.

at least now he won't have any more pain,

and he'll be with you, always.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
