I will truly miss our banter about fry pans and spoons. I pray for the family in this time of sadness.
: FROM MY FACEBOOK PAGE:
: My earliest memory of my Uncle Richard was on my 5th birthday. He took multiple buses after work to bring me a white box with a yellow ruffled satin dress inside. It was two sizes too small, but it didn't matter. I was touched by the gesture even to this day.
: Fast forward 16 years, Richard met a wonderful woman whom he called Princess Lia. Once they got married, I noticed his gifts started getting better; he began keeping in touch, he made family a priority, and welcomed me into his life with open arms.
: Richard, aka Slim, had a gamut of health problems. His princess devoted her life to taking care of his, until he was called home yesterday. Slim, your departure was too soon, but your warmth was not lost on us. Rest easy, Uncle Ricky. And thank you Princess Lia and Botnick family for filling Slim's life with happiness and love.
