CondolenceSo sorry for the loss of your dad.
Courtland Conkwright sent this to us, we were unaware. We are so sorry for your loss. The family needs to get together sometime to connect.
. Our families just learned about this yesterday from another Hawley cousin. I am so sorry that we never knew about Carlos passing. On behalf of all the Riggin's family I would like to express our deep condolences to Carlos family. Carlos was a good man and I so enjoyed the visits I did have with him. He helped me so much in learning more about our families of the past. I know he will be missed by many, but rest assured that he has his place next to the Lord as I speak.
