We are so sorry for your loss.
We were former neighbors of Joan and Richard in Sugarloaf. I would stop to visit if your dad was out working in the yard. We recently learned of your mother's passing when stopping at the house to visit, your father was missing his usual smile and enthusiasm. He would always go into the house and bring Joan out to say hello. He was always available for help and advice with my projects and Joan continued to send my children birthday cards for many years after we moved. They were the perfect couple and wonderful neighbors.

God Bless,

Jerry And Roberta Naylon,
Kenny, Kristina, Kimberly, Karlee

Dear Family of Richard and Joan,

We are heartbroken for all of you, especially happening now in difficult
Covid circumstances. Thank you for sharing this last, sad information
with us. I received the two messages together this morning because I was
not online yesterday. We treasured our long friendship with your
parents. A special thank you to David for staying in touch with us the
last few weeks when we couldn't speak with Richard.

Be strong. Stay safe. Love to all,

Nancy and Robert
