From a broadcast message from Christine Murray, LVMM Clerk:
It is with great sadness that I convey this to you. Below is part of Terri Purdy's message on "Caring Bridge" about her husband Rick Schall:
"Our dear Rick peacefully passed away last night. What a wonderful colleague, friend, brother, son, and most importantly to us a phenomenal husband and father he was. We are holding him in our hearts and we will always hold him in the light.
Thank you for all of the love and support you have given us over the past two years. We could not have better family and friends. The girls and I are so grateful to have had our joyful, loving and funny Rick with us during his time on hospice. We were able to declare our unending love for each other, share precious memories and partake in Rick’s cherry pie and cucumber salad.
I want to thank St. Luke’s Hospice for the wonderful support they have provided to Rick and family over the past four months. I also want to thank Caring Bridge for making it easy for Rick to communicate with so many.
Terri, Anna, Leah and Dave"
Information about Memorial Service arrangements are to come.
With great sadness,
Christine Murray, clerk“
