Hi Wally & Carol I just wanted to pass along how much my dad really loved having Wally up with him at the property in Dushore for all those years. Over the years even recently we shared the stories of Wally supplying the cabin with great food and snacks and having the golf cart with the dump body years before golf carts became the chosen method of getting around the mountain.The one regret my dad had was selling the place as it was "the place to be."Thanks for your kind words about my dad. We are praying that Wally will fully recover. Rick Evanoski & Family

Dear Betsy, We are so surprised and sorry at the passing of Richie. We were wondering why we hadn’t seen him in a while; we weren’t aware he was ill. Wally considered him a good friend and enjoyed his visits. Unfortunately we will not be able to attend his funeral as I just brought Wally home from the hospital and he is not very mobile. He is dealing with heart and lung issues. May our good Lord be with you in your future days with His Peace and Comfort , Sincerely, Wally and Carole

It was sad news when Betsy called to notify me of Rich's passing. I enjoyed his friendship for over 60 years. He was a true "mountain man" who loved the outdoors, walking in the woods, or riding a snow mobile. Although miles apart, we maintained contact and had an enduring friendship. Prayers for Betsy and family. RIP my friend, Dan Stankoski Fairhope, Alabaama

Dear Betsy, Thinking of you at this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember you and Rich so many years ago as such a happy young couple always laughing and most pleasant. He was our football player…you were his majorette. May you cherish all the years together and hold those beautiful memories close to your heart. With fond memories…Toni Rottenberg (Agnes Parduski)
