Noel Richards - Mar 20, 2011

Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thought and prayer. I always remember Papa for his humor, his strength,and the occasional trouble he would always cause. 😉 He will live in our memories forever. My heart is with you, Grandma, during these difficult times. I love you so much!
