To the Family and Friends of Richard J. Gallagher,

Please accept our deepest sympathy at this time of great sadness in your lives. Losing someone like Richard, who led such a full life can be extremely difficult. Comforting words that can help the healing process are found in the Bible at Revelation 21:4: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I hope these words from our Heavenly Father Jehovah, will bring you some solace during this time of sorrow.
