  1. Sorry to hear of cousin Richard’s passing. Lori and I regret we can’t be there for the funeral so please accept our condolences from on a Utah campground. I always enjoyed talking to Rich about heavy equipment and mechanical stuff my dad was involved with. Our best to all the family. Alan and Lori Chadwick
