Condolences to the Family

To RS’s family; while I post this months after RS’s passing, I still want to record my condolences.  As you may recall, RS and I were roommtes at U of D for multiple years.  He was a devoted friend who I count myself lucky to have known.  I have fond memories of visiting your home in Lancaster on Sundays for dinner.  RS and I had many conversations about what was ahead of us in life, and I hope he enjoyed his to the fullest. 
RIP friend.

Ray, Sandy and Family, 
I am deeply saddened by the loss of RS. Although we had lost touch through the years, I always fondly recall the years I was your neighbor on Church St. and my friendship with RS.
My prayers and condolences to all of you.

So sorry for the loss of your son.  Our prayers are with your family.  What a wonderful person R.S. was. We purphased our car last August from him, so we didn’t know him that well, but  We had nice conversations during our many test drives until we found the car we purphased.
