Mary, Richard & Stephen, so sorry to hear of Richard's passing, worked with him many years at Harford County and we shared an office together for many years. Richard was a great guy and always cheerful and positive and always spoke about all of you, he was so proud of his family. Please accept my prayers and condolences. Fred Rush

Rick & Steve, hopefully you remember me, Brian Pabst, from our days at Harford Christian. I was very sorry to read of your father's passing. I lost my Dad, Robert ("Bob"), suddenly in April 2016 at age 81, so I know what it is like to lose your father. You and your Mom and families are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May God send you, your Mom, and your families His comfort now and in the days ahead. I would relish getting to see you both again one day. Hopefully that will happen at some point in the future.

Brian R. Pabst (Baldwin, MD)
