Condolence & Memory Journal

Richard was a dear soul, who made everybody his friend. His joy at the sounds of the string bands was contagious. He was a light to all of his cousins.

So sorry to hear about Richie. I haven't seen him in many years but remember him well in his younger years. He was such a good , funny and sweet kid. My sincere sympathy to Anthony and the entire family.

As I remember Rich, one year older than I and always wiser. The heart of an angel. His last years not as sweet as they should have been. Rich was always there smile on his face, and a hug for me whenever he saw me. Rich was always ready to tell you who was his favorite wrestling pal and who was on his bad list at the time. Ready to do the mummers strut when he heard his favorite music. God has one of the few angels that were here on earth now with him in heaven. Thank you Richard for sharing your love here on earth!

As we remember our cousin lovable Richard we think of all the good times that the life of the party brought to the Grosso family gathering ,although it has been awhile since that last time we still have those memories that will always be there & will never leave us.
Richards mom my Aunt Franny showed so much Mortherly love for him when she was with him down here that she will now take care of him up there where they will now be together once again.
Our hearts & prayers go out to the family although we can not be there tomorrow we will be thinking of everybody & hope everything goes well.

We are so sorry to learn of the passing of your brother Richard. We lived a few doors down on the other side of the driveway and I remember Richard so well. He is with God now passing on the day of the Lord's epiphany.

I am so sad to read this. I mentioned his name yesterday to my brother. Richie lived across the street from me on Taylor Drive and we played as little kids. The Lord truly welcomed a Saint.
