Most Heavenly Papa we are saddened by the loss of a very special man, your child who was a very important part of each life he touched. We know your peace is given to us freely each and every day, but we ask for a little bit extra to be given to those who are dealing with the heartache of this loss in their lives. Help each to keep the memories they have alive in their hearts and minds and to be able to share with others what they chose so that their hearts can be lightened by each memory and each smile that comes across their face. In your most wonderful and glorious name we pray. Amen

Dear Suzie and family, Punky & I were sad to learn of your loss of Rich. We often think of those fun days all of us enjoyed growing up in Oil City. Our best to you and we are praying for you. Perhaps our paths will cross again - maybe in the Yellow Dog. Love, Punky & Jeff

Dear Suzie, Cara, Casey, Richie and families, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Richard. He was a fine man and I will always treasure the memories from the time I worked for him. He made coming to work a pleasure. His dry wit and humor helped make the day go by much faster. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you as you deal with his passing in your own special ways. Keep the memories of him dear to your heart. Those can never be taken away. Love, Regina

Just learned that my Uncle Richard passed away. I remember when I was young when he came to visit my dad, Glenn (Corky) Clinger and mom, Joan, and we always had so much fun when he visited. He was quite the character. To my aunt and cousins: My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very sad time.
