  • Julie Jarmon  - With deep sympathy
    Scott, Shawn and the Thibeault family and loved ones of Ritchie have my deepest sympathy. Our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) promises us at Revelations 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Psalms 34:18 The family is in my prayers and I offer my heartfelt condolences.
  • Rev. Ruth Richards  - In sympathy
    I'm so sorry to hear about Ritchie's sudden death last month. I was his pastor at the Pawtucket Congregational Church, UCC in Lowell for a couple of years and always enjoyed my conversations with him. I always learned something! He had a keen and enquiring mind, was a fount of interesting ideas, some practical, some philosophical, was eager to seek after and know God and very kind and generous to others. He also wrote poetry (not many people knew that), under the pseudonym Jonathan Roame, and composed a poem about Palm Sunday that we read in church on Palm Sunday, 2015. We are enriched by having known him, and poorer at his loss - much too soon. Please accept my condolences and prayers for comfort and peace to all who miss and mourn him.
