It is with sincere appreciation that I would like to thank the community, family, friends, business owners, strangers and everyone who has paid their respects, by either attending my husband, Richie Saponari's funeral, Celebration of Life, or a phone call, text, message on the condolence page, sent flowers, food or money or have seen me and offered kinds words, a hug and smile. The devastation of losing Richie is so overwhelming that I know, without a doubt, I could not get through without the support I have through all of you. As you know, Richie was bigger than life, caring, devoted, and had a huge, contagious smile and personality. All who knew him miss him terribly.
Thank you all for your prayers and support during this extremely difficult time and for the generous donations toward funeral expenses through the benefit at Mon Ami Restaurant given by John and Peggy Kronberg.
