Noemi, I want you to know how much I love ❤️ you and how deeply sorry I am that you’re hurting. I wish I could take your pain away.😢 Richard had the perfect wife.💏 You were so good to him & he adored you for it. I know no amount of words can take your pain away but find comfort in knowing that you will see him again.❤️ Ricky, Gladys & Martin, my deepest & most sincere sympathy for your Dad’s loss and also to all his grandchildren.
May God give you all supernatural strength, comfort & peace beyond all understanding in Jesus name. Amen 🙏🏼 😔😢❤️
My love Always, Nery❤️

I have nothing but the best memories.❤️ Especially, on Cleveland with my Ponce family. Besides being the 1st to live downstairs, we were more with Richard & Noemi than we were in Connecticut after we moved. I always remember Richard in his overalls from work & a bunch of keys rattling when he came in the house. I still remember when he set up the round pool back yard on Cleveland when I was little. If we weren’t in Connecticut you could find us at Richards house. Always knew what he was talking about & there was nothing he couldn’t fix. Sometimes if Papi had a problem with the car & he couldn’t fix it, he would go to Richard to see what it was. And he would fix it. Richard & Papi were to peas in a pod! It was the 3 amigos. Richard, Oscar & Papi (Walter). Best Friends/Brothers/Cousins/primo hermano. When Oscar passed, Papi was heart broken. So, Papi & Richard became even closer. Since then between visiting & calling eachother, they’ve never missed a beat. I loved watching Richard, Papi & Richards friends hangout on Cleveland & crack jokes for hours! Nothing but great times with Richard. I will ALWAYS hold these & many more memories dear to my heart. I only wish I could turn back the clock & go back to the good ole time when life was simple with my Ponce family. I love you Richard from deepest part of my heart. I’ll see you later!
Always, Nery ❤️
