    It is so hard to express the sorrow over the loss of a loved one. A wonderful father & husband leaves a hole in our hearts. Yet remember that you are surrounded by those that love you very much& share in your sorrow.

    It is a charitable hope that Dick is at peace with our Lord. I worked with Dick at the SUNY Brockport Small Business Development Center for a number of years. I was very sad to hear he had passed. Condolences to the family.

    Loss is a terrible thing that we have to face, while I never got to personally know Richard I’m sure he was an amazing man with a kind heart. May he rest in peace. I send best wishes to all of those who are struggling during this time of grief.
