Memories Timeline


  1. Leaving a little light for someone who needs it to peacefully guide them the rest of his way. Lights will always guide you home.

  2. Surrounding you with love and virtual hugs, Toni. I know from your stories how much your brother meant to you. Treasure those memories and continue to share them with others. Richard will always have a place in your heart and the memories of his life will continue in the stories you tell.

  3. May God’s arms be wrapped around you, May his angels be dancing at your feet, May knowing you are in the thoughts of your loved ones keep you at peace.
