Deb and family,
We are so sorry to hear about Rich.
We did monument engraving and every time we worked in Grandview Cemetery we talked to Rich. We always enjoyed seeing him. He was related to my wife's Aunt Ada Briskey from Meyersdale and we usually talked about her and Meyersdale.
Again you have our sympathy.
Marty & Peggy Yommer
