    Jeannie, Susan and Richard: I just saw the announcement in the Pittsburgh Paper about Rich. I am very sadden about his passing. My family seems to be getting smaller and smaller. I have been remembering all the times we spent together. It has been awhile since I last talked to both of you at Value City many years ago. Please know I will keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Rich is up with his tools and lots of family fixing something. Love and prayers to all. Marianne
