Sympathy

Our sympathy to family of Robert “Bob” Richardson Jr. who passed away on Oct. 26 at Dexter Health Care. He was 79, and will be missed by my family. My boys remember the fun times with him, fishing, camping, and other outdoor activities. Always was excitement with Bob. May he finally rest in peace.

Our condolences to the family of Brendon Coffin, age 22, son of Crystal, and his siblings. His grandparents are Calvin and Gerry Clark of town. He has given the gift of life to others. Thinking of all at this time. His mom works at Mammie’s Country Kitchen in Unity.

Thinking of Clayton Wentworth in the loss of his brother Bernard of Wisconsin.
