So very sorry to hear of your loss. Our deepest sympathy goes to the entire family. It has been many years since we lived in the Toledo area and have not seen any of you in a long time. However, I will never forget the great times we had as kids. Please know that Barb and I will be praying for Richard and all of you. God Bless You, Rich & Barb
