My darling Richie,
You are and always will be the love of my life. It breaks my heart to lose you but it broke my heart to see you in such pain. We have been so blessed to have each other and I will cherish our 40 years of wonderful memories we made together forever.
Rest now darling your fight is done.
All my love Karyn
Dad, life will never be the same without you. No words can ever express how much you mean to us. You are our hero and we love you to the end of the world and back.
Love always Amity, Nick, Fletcher and Levi
Dad, you will be sadly missed. You’ll never be forgotten, everything around us has a memory of you. You were a one-of-a-kind father and Papa. Your memory will live on in the boys.
