Ross Family,
We are so sorry to hear about your loss. Our prayers are with you and your loved ones. We have fond memories of Rich at the Hura's on Cardinal drive when we would come and visit during summers or holidays. He was always in a good mood, fun to be around, and ready to give you a hearty handshake! He'll be missed.
Walter, Christine, Danny, Derek, and Sammy Iszczyszyn
