Mr.Rich, Johnny, Brian and Dan,
Hey Guys. Sorry I just got the news today.
I am very sorry for your loss, our loss. Growing up as kids we are always friends and family not matter the distance or time. I had a lot of great memories with your mom, as we had so many ball games in the street and on the field. Thinking back of the block parties and baseball games the one thing that always made me chuckle is she made the best Kool-Aide! You will be n my thoughts and hope to one day see you guys. Love you guys and God bless - Jim & Christine Pfeil

To the family and friends of Katherine A Rich., I am very sorry for your loss. During these difficult times God tells us that we can turn to him because he is the God of all comfort.
2 Corinthians 1:3,4 which says “Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.”
