Dear Charlene, Chris and I offer our sincere condolences to you. Cousin Richie was my mom's beloved godson (She was your Grandfather Joe's sister, your great Aunt Theresa). She had a soft spot for all of her godchildren and your dad was no exception. He was always very kind and respectful when he would visit. I haven't seen you since you were a little girl, but it was obvious watching your dad with you that he adored you and was so happy to have a lovely daughter. May you be comforted and strengthed by that love in the days and weeks ahead. Godspeed Richie.
Your cousin, Lorna Marshall Blackler
