    Peace be with you Melanie. Ken and I will always remember the times we shared. Many bike rides, camping trips and good times together. We were there when Erica came into this word and you first became a Mom. So sorry for your loss Richard and Erica, our thoughts are with you both. Wish we could be there to give you all a hug and a kiss. God Bless.
    Love, Varnell, Ken, Cole and Phillip DelVecchio (East Bridgewater, MA)
