Richard was very special to our family. My favorite memory was when "Santa Claus" paid a visit to Claire and Bob's house.
Our sincerest sympathy Sara. God Bless.

Richard was such a Blessing to us, he and his family have been a part of our extended family for many years. Although we are struggling with this huge loss and empty spot in our lives and hearts we will cherish many memories and hold him close in our hearts. "It's all good." Love and prayers to all the family, Claire

Richard was a hard working person, even as a boy, he responded with a man size attitude and heart to help others. we faced great challenges, no matter what he was so full of humor, we laughed a lot more than we cried. he married a wonderful woman, Sara. together they lived a loving live till he passed. i was much older than him, and we came to be so close that he was like my son I could only wish for a son to admire and love like Richard. he was a great friend,to me a great husband, and father. we will all miss him, he is at peace with God now. your friend Bob
