So sorry for your loss. Rich and Marcey were the best of friends at Bluegrass Festivals. They even would pick me up at times as we traveled to them to work the event. Prayers for the family.

Rich and Marcey were life time friends. My mother moved across the street from Rich’s family when I was six years old. Marcey and I became close friends in Jr. High. We remained friends always. In 1958, I was maid of honor to Marcey in their wedding. I miss both of you❤️❤️
