In Memory of Our Friend & Ambassador, Richard Nussbaum

"The song is ended, but the melody lingers on." (Irving Berlin) Richard Nussbaum, a client of Harmarville Adult Day Services will be missed by the staff and his friends at Easterseals. For 13 years, Richard entertained them with his jokes, wit, and grit. Richard, a 64-year old overachiever, enjoyed volunteering and helping others, collecting t-shirts, painting, and listening to various audio books and musical pieces. In honor of the joy that Richard has brought to all of us, this year's Walk With Me 2020 event on May 16, 2020 will be held in his honor. Please join us in his memory. Richard was our "Ambassador Extraordinaire."
