  1. You’ll be missed by many!

    Written by: Athena (Drakos) Boos

    Uncle Dick, They say people who love sweets have a sweeter disposition. I know it’s true because of you! You’ve always been so kind & gentle. I will miss your jokes. I will miss seeing you enjoy your chocolate desserts. I will miss listening to you talk proudly about Nathan, Billy & Delaney. I will miss celebrating your birthday & getting as many free Birthday desserts as we can! I will mIss your smile. I will miss teasing you about your promptness. Your true love & commitment to Aunt Connie will forever inspire me. I love you. Please say hi to Grandma & Grandpa Drakos.
    Until we all meet again, Athena

  2. Uncle Rich’s example of a moral, ethical life is highlighted by the warmth of his smile and kind welcoming manner. He inspired me by showing me his personal interests and hobbies. Family get togethers at a lake often included a lesson in how to float rather than sink. If you ever received one of his “trip tickets” with exacting details and pin point accuracy you knew the care and precision that would get you to your destination safely and on time.
    Thank you Uncle Rich for seeding excellence and care into my life.
