Dear Anita and Family,
I was so sadden to hear about Richard's passing. I have many fond memories of the large Sukenik family gatherings when younger. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

We wanted to share our condolences with Richards family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3, 4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.
