    Good morning family, sorry I couldn’t be there, but I am in spirit. This day is the end of a chapter in our legacy. Now it’s our turn to continue and make our ancestors proud to know they raised us the right way to carry on our legacy. What that will be we will soon see. I was fortunate to have two other mothers leave us beside my own in Aunt Audrey and now Aunt Margaret. I cannot thank THE LORD enough for this gift. The wisdom I learned I will carry with me forever. Blessings and strength to my family at this time. With love The Richardson Family.

    I was saddened to hear the news of my Auntie passing, I will always remember her as the strong, feisty Bronx New Yorker she was, glad my Uncle Andrew will have his “Margie” at his side once again, but look out heaven her she comes…
