Dear Cleary Family, So sorry to hear of the loss of Rick. I have so many fond memories of him and playing our guitars together at Masses at IC, as well as seeing him at North Central (where I worked for 10 years). He always had that warm smile, and friendly words. Prayers for him and all of you.

Dear Mrs. Cleary and family,

Tim and I were very sad to see that Rick passed away and we were too late to attend his funeral Mass at IC. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I will have a Mass said for Richard, Kevin and your beloved husband, Richard, at Our Lady of Bethlehem, where your adorable granddaughter, Martha, attended school.

With deepest sympathy for your loss,
Audrey and Timothy Kelsey
