I have cherished memories from my Kirtland childhood of my eldest cousin, Richard. And was so glad to have lunch with Richard, Faye and other cousins 3 years ago in Ohio. It was a sweet memory.

Dear family of Richard, please accept my deepest consolations for your loss of Richard. May you find heartfelt comfort in the good memories and peace. G Laurel Ayres
