    Prayers For Bill and children. My thoughts with all the Richard family. Wonderful classmate. She always appeared so shy and quiet. Rest in Peace, Alma. I will miss you each year at Class of 56 class reunions. It was a pleasure to see/converse with when we saw one another. I send condolences to Bill and your family.
