Searcy, AR

I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear David. I hope that you will find comfort in the words of Jesus at John 5:28,29 where he promised that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect back to life those in the grave. Until then, it is just like they are sleeping. (John 11:11-13) May your family draw strength from Jehovah, the God of all Comfort.

Our sincere condolences to Teresa and Dr. Risch's many family members, friends, associates and patients, all of whom will miss him and the loss to our community. He was a founding member of the Rotary Club of Palatka Sunrise, of which we are members as well. Several members related at this morning's meeting how Dr. Risch was seeing patients within a few days of his passing, and in fact, due to an important diagnosis, actually made a life-saving diagnosis for the husband of one of our members. Such an individual as Dr. Risch comes along very rarely. We were pleased to have known him, if only for a relatively short time.

David will always be remembered for his smile and cheery attitude. There is no doubt that our community will miss him. His family is in our thoughts and prayers through this difficult time. Another angel will be keeping an eye on all of us.
