Memories Timeline


  1. Lori, Teresa and family,
    I am heartbroken to hear of the passing of this sweet lady. The Rich’s house was my second home. I have more memories than I can possibly describe here. I was always treated as one of her girls. Prayers and love for you all!! Pearl

  2. May these few words of sympathy help, at least in part, to ease the burden that you bear and the sadness in your heart
