  9. Anonymous says:

    Rich’s presence always brightened our days, and his humor warmed our hearts. He always was able to make us smile no matter what the circumstances. Not only could he make anyone laugh, but he was also very caring friend and family member. His thoughful advice and loving words helped my family through some dark times. Often when we talked, his words would be of his affection for his wife, daughter, and step son. He loved his family very much and was aware of how lucky he was to be surrounded by such a wonderful family. We were fortunate to have him in our lives and we will always be fortunate to have him in our hearts. We will love him always!

    Love
    Lane, Jacque, Drake and Charlotte Summers

    Dear Tellez Family: I wanted to send my deepest and sincere condolences during this unfortunate time in your lives, but I also wanted to share with your family a comforting promise that God gives in his Word the Bible about the hope of us seeing our dead loved ones again, it’s found at John 5:28,29 which in part reads:”Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life,”. Your family will be in my prayers, my sincere condolences.
