So sorry for your loss. Richard is such a great man with such a great sense of humor. He was always serving others. We had many great memories from planning and supervising young women's camps. He was such a talented woodworker. I am so thankful to have been his friend.

God bless all of you, and always remember that families are forever and we will all be reunited.
