Our family has known The Richard's for many years and always enjoyed going to their family owned fruit market for apples each year growing up. Mrs. Richard was always the first person we saw and she was so very kind and gentle. We are so sorry for your loss. The Bible has certainly given us much comfort when losing ones we love so dearly in death. Revelation 21:4; Philippians 4:13

Belinda Palmer left a message on April 9, 2022:
Eddie and family, you have my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mother. I fell in love with Mary the first time I met her, years ago, and a visit was never complete without a discussion of the best apple for a new recipe, a taste of a new variety she was excited about, or how she made those ambrosial peach milkshakes. A sweeter soul never walked the earth. She's been on my prayer list for a long time, and now I'll include you all in the hope that you find comfort and peace. A new angel is spreading her wings.

What a sweet, kind lady. If you were at Richard's Fruit Market, you had to hug Mary. She was the attraction at the market. We came to buy fruit, but we also came to see Mary. She will be missed. To the family, I know she has been sick for a while, I am sending you hugs and prayers for your loss.
