I can't find the word's, nor the nouns or verbs to express the impact Uncle Richard had on everyone's life that he encountered. His demeanor and the love for his family was apparent and impeccable. Although sometimes in life a beautiful disaster can be a blessing in disguise, and even though you're home now, a part of me still wishes you was here...Condolences to the family..

I don't have the words, nor the nouns or verbs to express how much Uncle Richard impacted everyone's life that he came across. His demeanor was impeccable and appreciated from everyone he encountered. His love for his family was apparent, although sometimes in life a beautiful disaster can be a blessing in disguise, and now you're home, a part of me still wishes you was here, but you'll forever be in our hearts. Condolences to the family...

To my dear sister, Jean, and Richard's family:
I am so sorry for all of your loss. Richard and Jean had been together for a very long time and each had accepted each other's family and friends. They were , in fact, much in tune with each other. Richard did accept her family and children and was kind to them. He was a very big Astro fan and a really good dancer. When he and Jean would get onto the dance floor, they would put everyone else to shame. A really great couple. I am saddened by your loss and am thinking of all of you. Love you Jean. Thinking of all of you during this trying time.

Family gatherings won’t quite be the same without Grandpa Carson running the show. He truly knew how to make our time together fun and memorable.
You can rest peacefully now. We love you & will miss you Grandpa ❤️
