Jim and Paul, so sorry and shocked to hear about Richele. My best friend for a long time. We "grew up" together. We lost touch with each other, but the memories will last, in my mind, forever. Please keep me posted on the celebration of life.

I wish I had arms long enough to hug you my dear Richele... We became friends, then funny enemies as stupid teens, but we were awesome to come back together. I got you to work with us at the chinese restaurant, we had sooooo many fun and crazy times working there together with Linda and Chris.. I am so thankful for the wonderful friendships that come along in our lives. It was just perfect having you over for that silly party in my attic... What a great time we had.I can't wait to see you again and your silly laugh. Your family will be sure to know you are near them each and every moment of the day.. Many hugs of love to all of your loved ones..... to be continued.............
