    I was so sorry to hear of Rich’s passing. My ex-husband, Jerry bahun and him were really great friends. In fact, your Dad was a pallbearer at Jerry’s funeral. We all used to hang out in the outpost bar until we all started having kids. Your mom and dad were both such nice people. May he rest in heavenly peace. You have my deepest sympathy.

    First, our sincere condolences to all of Rich’s family. We were neighbors across the street from Rich and Virginia for 11 years. They became not only our close friends but “second grandparents “ to our kids Jodi and Rick. We considered them family. We shared frequent get togethers through the years which we loved and cherished. Judi and I are on our 13th move since our marriage and have yet to be Blessed with two kinder and better people than Rich and Virg. Rest in Peace Rich. We look forward to the day we join you both again.
