When I was 15 Richard let me live with them for the summer. He was an awesome person. He used to give me a ride on skooter and motorcycle which scared me senseless. He was a daredevil on those bikes. I loved you my cousin. Sadly I missed seeing you the last 10 years. In my thoughts I see you with God, your parents and son.
RIP Cousin Richard.
Love Julie
