Messages of Condolence

  1. It is 9:30 a.m. on Monday so it is 10:30 there in Parma. Rudy’s mass is taking place as I write this. I wish Gary and I could be there with you all. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Knowing that Rudy is at peace and with his beloved Jean and Eric too makes it a little bit easier for you, I hope. We will always remember playing LCR with Rudy and Jean at your kitchen table and their joining us for a bit of bowling during one of their visits to Minnesota. Such a delightful pair they were:) And I will long picture Rudy doing a little bit of dancing at Becky & David’s wedding in June. What a blessing that he was able to be there!!! Please give our best to your sister and brother and their families too, Rick. Love you guys!
