    My deepest condolences to the Baltz Family!
    Richard’s smile will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I feel grateful for him having been my dear neighbour when I lived in Omar. Not once did I pass by his home without him waving. In the winter he used to ride his snowmobile around our property to make trails in the snow in order to make it easier for us to walk the dogs. He had the sweetest soul one can imagine.
    Love and prayers, Christi from Germany
