    To the Fenske Family, You have me deepest sympathy. So sorry to hear of Richard's passing. I only found out about it earlier this week.
    My prayers are for you and the rest of the family. Richard was a good man, well respected in the law enforcement community both in Brookpark, Ohio and Lee County, Florida.

    Very sorry for your loss.
