Condolences

To the whole Woodall gang, I am deeply sorry for your loss! Uncle Rich was truly one in a million! He was so sweet & generous. He always made me feel special to him. He had a wicked sense of humor and was so welcoming to me and my family. I will always remember his warmth and kindness. They say time eases the pain, but for now, I am grateful that he has been released from all that he had to endure, I hope you have some peace from that knowledge. I have heard people remark that we are not as much remembered by what we say but by how we make others feel. Special is what jumps out at me! He knew how to make every person feel very special and that is quite a gift! Sending our love to each of you! Love always, Kim, Jay, Tristan, & Kieran Warsaw
