Dear JoAnn, I am deeply saddened to learn that your happy Rich has left us. It was always fun to spend time in meetings down in Florida where we all could relax and laugh at stories from the old days. He was smart and funny and crazy about you. I know your wonderful family will look after you and each other as he would have wanted. My love and best wishes to you. Sharon Havlick Sharon Havlick

Jo, I am so sorry to hear of Richard's passing. Just remember how much you loved each other, and smile with all the good memories you had together. Your family is there with you, and lean hard on them when you need to. He would want it that way. Love you and miss you.... Jackie jackie holloway

My dear friend, You've spent over half your life with Richard. A love that comes once in a life time. I wish I was there to be by your side.

Dear JoAnn, I am so sorry to hear of the death of your dear husband, Richard. Please know of my deep prayer and sympathy. Margaret Margaret Chapman

Jo, As friends and neighbors we are so very sorry for the loss to you and your family. Richard was such a good person and obviously loved by all in your family. He was such a contributor in the neighborhood and it’s too bad that declining health robbed him of that in recent years. Richard enjoyed our little patio parties very much and his presence will now be so missed. Thoughts and prayers always, Ron and Yvonne Kazmar

Jo, Janelle & I are so sorry to learn that Richard has passed. In time you will have nothing but the good memories. Sending you hugs. Jeanne & Janelle Jeanne North

Your passion for our industry and common sense approach in working together with labor is something i will always remember and respect. Rest in peace my friend. Mark D Saba

Dear JoAnn, Rich's death has saddened Dave and me. We have fond memories of our early married times when we would get together for dinner and that card game with all the pennies. Our sincere sympathies to you and your family. Our hope is that your shared happy memories will keep Rich's spirit alive. Sending hugs, Diana Diana Donegan
