    Nancy, We sympathize and offer sincerest condolences. Its impossible to even estimate your grief. Good friends and good memories are sure to help, but not easily.

    Richard was a favorite in our class, even if he was a ”visitor’. He was respected by all.

    Nancy my heart breaks for you in this horrible time of grief. Richard loved you so much, as I know you did him. You two were so good together and loved by so many people. I know you have so many memories together and can’t imagine your life without him. I hope God puts his arms around you and gives you the strength to go on without Richard, Bryon and Ricky. No one knows the pain you are in but you. I am so sorry. I love you and if I can help you in any way please let me know….. Lisa

    I can’t believe it’s already been 5 yrs since we lost Ricky & already a year since you lost Bryon and Your Beloved Richard. OM Nancy I Can’t even Imagine the pain & Grief you must feel of all Theses losses and so close together. As we spoke a couple weeks ago, It’s hard to lose the Loves Of Our Lives and I sure know You and Richard sure had one of the Best and Most Wonderful Lives Together, that you I know will cherish forever and I can’t say it gets better, because I’m still struggling with it myself. We just have too learn some how to deal with it and move on in Life. The loss of a Child I can’t even imagine the pain you must feel. I know one thing for sure that You All felt like Family to me & I’m so Thankful to have known all of you and I Loved all of them like my own Family because Ya’ll made me feel like Family. As I said a couple of weeks ago, And I promise I will get there soon to see you ,I have missed you all very much. I hope I can maybe get there before Christmas but if not very soon. As you know Mom isn’t doing to well. I will see you soon though. They are so missed, as well as you Sweet Mama. They are in a Better place than we are that’s for sure. If you ever need anything, a Friend, a shoulder, a hand, a ear, Anything. I’m Here for You!! May God Keep You & Love You, and wrap you in His Loving Arms Always! I WILL SEE YOU SOON!! LOVE ALWAYS, TAMMY
